In line with this we have developed and built-up, over a period of 35 years, strong international relationships with leading artists, models and photographers. The... Read More

With our brand new latex clothing collection being launched we needed to create a photograph that represented its quality and thought processes. What better than to hold a photo shoot within a pleasant Georgian house in the natural beauty of Devon, England.

NEW Latex Collection. Dom Elègence by Westward Bound. A small reflection on a massive amount of work, a pure labour of love and what you would expect from a célèbre couturier latex.
2018 is heading our way and we are extremely excited at Westward Bound.
