New Brand Alert!

Bums and breasts look best in Sugarlesque!
We’d like to introduce you to the latest addition to the If You Please family, fabulous, fresh, designer and creator of hand made lingerie Sugarlesque. 
Sugarlesque is a London based designer and talented one-woman show. Her creativity and obsession for pretty things has lead to the development of a super-cool and contemporary collection of lingerie, beachwear and quirky matching accessories. She’s currently responsible for the handmade designer pasties you find at Myla and has also previously worked on accessories for What Katie Did. 

Every item by this brand is specially hand made to order from the finest fabrics and trims. Orders usually take seven to ten days to get to you, but trust us it’s worth the wait!
Sugarlesque lingerie is completely exclusive to If You Please and we’re delighted to have her on board. This lady is definitely one to watch! 

Miss Dita Von Teese, If You Please

We tootled off to Erotica at Earls Court to catch up with some of our brands and have some proper girly fun. The day was eventful to say the least!

We saw some very talented artists such as whiskey-soaked, fire-breathin' Princess of British Burlesque, Kitty Bang Bang, for whom we'll soon be crafting some creative costumes. She did a brilliant 'cat in a wheelie bin' routine, which we very much approved of. 

I have to say that the highlight of the evening was meeting Miss Dita Von Teese, then watching her perform her hypnotising new Opium Dreams Routine on stage. Here's a picture of her and me, in which I look shiny and a little bit mental (I was quite star struck). 

And a shot of her fabulous performance.

Oh what a night!

All I can say is wow, what a spectacular evening our launch party turned out to be! Thank you to everyone who made it, you all looked gorgeous. 

The event was held at the glitzy London club Movida and began with a glitter-dusted cocktail reception, courtesy of Martini Gold. In keeping with If You Please’s retro image, the cocktails were vintage-inspired, served in old fashioned Martini glasses and were extra strong. I have to admit, our heads were a little bit sore the following morning. 
Our IYP models work the catwalk, styled by Kaizo hair salon and Talita, make up artist and writer of The Gloss Goss.

 The finale acts were the wonderful Miss Betty Burlesque and Miss Banbury Cross. Let's leave the pictures to do the talking ; )
