We’re delighted to have the legendary burlesque dancer, costume designer, and beauty guru Dita Von Teese join us to host the Underfashion Club’s 2016 FEMMY AWARDS GALA on Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016 at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City!
Dita Von Teese is frequently dubbed the “Queen of Burlesque” for driving the revival of burlesque performance since she began strip teasing in 1992. She had always been fascinated by the Golden Age of Cinema, pin-up imagery, and vintage lingerie. She grew to become the modern embodiment of Old Hollywood glamour. Dita is the performer of choice for high-profile events for influential fashion designers and she often tops best-dressed lists all over the world with her self-styled looks.
Dita has long had a fondness for lacy garments, stockings, and all things lingerie since before she even owned her first bra. She believes that every woman, no matter her style or the occasion, should feel free to indulge in the pleasures of luxe lingerie for no reason other than to celebrate being a woman. This passion inspired her to design her own collection, which debuted exclusively in the U.S. in March of 2014.
Her presence is greatly anticipated at the FEMMY Awards, where intimate apparel business professionals, students, and designers gather to celebrate this year’s talents and innovations in our industry!
