For a few years now, I have noticed that the Bondage, Discipline, Submission and Masochism (BDSM) scene has gained mainstream notoriety. BDSM inspired fashion has graced the cover of Vogue magazine and has inspired countless editorials and magazine covers. 50 shades of grey became a huge a hit with women all over the world, transforming the once secret scene into a lucrative book trilogy.
Recently, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Kendal Jenner, to name a few, have been spotted wearing “Dominatrix Chic Couture” on the red carpet, which inspires more designers to add a touch of BDSM to their collections. Let’s not forget Taylor Swift’s video, Bad Blood. In it, there is a constant parade of celebrities wearing sexy “Bondage” inspired outfits.
So how did 50 shades of grey, fashion and Hollywood inspire me to design the devilish dominatrix character? I find Dominatrix outfits, black leather bustiers and high heel boots very sexy. However, what really fascinates me is the fact that they are always in control, and that’s exactly what I want to convey with my cute,”Blubble Gum” cartoon version.
My Sassy line of tops is for girls who like to be in control of their lives, have their own job, are smart and don’t need to depend on others to get what they want. Kind of like a female version of Christian Grey.
