Peekaboo Peep-Show Burlesque Performance - Boudoir Fashion & Risqué Lingerie Launch at Max Black.

Last Thursday evening, Max Black treated a select few to an evening of lingerie and boudoir fashion intimates. All along with performances by Australian Burlesque sweethearts Bella Louche, Frankie Faux and Memphis Mae. These beauties of the stage also modelled, paraded and posed wearing European intimate fashion labels; Something Wicked, Très Bonjour,  Fleur of England, Maison Close - Paris  and Lascivious. This was my first time at Max Black which is an 18+ 'restricted premise' and no doubt, just like you, I was wondering what I would find inside when I arrived.. What I found after receiving my tickets for the lucky door prize was a large and spacious well appointed store, friendly staff, a small bar from where the sparkling wine flowed and rack after rack of divine lingerie! I have been dining downstairs at Happy Chef Newtown for the last 20 years but it would seem I should have been heading upstairs for the last seven to check out what must be Sydney's best kept lingerie secret!

The show kicked of with a Memphis Mae classic golden-gown burlesque on the 'main' dance podium quickly followed by the arrival of two of our beauties Frankie Faux & Bella Louche wearing retro styled, laser cut, couture latex by Berlin's Très Bonjour from head to toe. After posing together on the main podium one of the ladies moved over to the mesh shrouded podium with several peep holes cut out. This would be the running style for the night and I loved this second podium's homage to the old skool restricted premises peep-show and decided there-and-then that my pictures should all go along with that entertaining piece of voyeuristic genius! Mouse over pictures for details.

And for some reason, although the runway was pulsating to Madonna; I came away thinking of the hit track from Soft Cells Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret; Tainted love -  but while searching came across what I think is vastly superior version from this fellow below - Enjoy!
