As part of our ongoing collaboration with Sydney based photographer Leslie Liu, we were thrilled to receive this great shot of Australian Burlesque star Ivy Rose Raven in our Delicious Latex Dress, the garment looks extra hot in Semi Transparent Black rubber. Leslie is big in the Sydney scene and his work is greatly admired across the globe. We love his images.
Valentine Dream. We simply love this image of Maika Kamisusaki in Westward Bound. Shot on location in Nagoya Japan.
Valentine Dream. We simply love this image of Maika Kamisusaki in Westward Bound’s Maitresse-En-Titre Femme Latex Dress. This dress is one of the favourites and best selling dresses from our Femme-A-Licious Collection; with its strict hierarchical naming convention from the French aristocracy, 16th – 18th century. The name refers to the chief Mistress of the King of France and seemed a fun concept to play with. Shot on location in Nagoya, Japan.
Sort of “neat” when TV presenter Gita Cellei from DistractTV wears Westward Bound’s Bordelle-L’Amour Rose latex dress design to New York Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Sq. 14th February 2017. Brought smiles to us on this side of the pond. 🙂 xx
Snaps from behind the scenes, Westward Bound Latex with Paul Mitchell Hair Products, in Zürich, Switzerland.

Paul Mitchell are truly global and supply over 100,000 stores in the USA alone whilst we are a very niche and exclusive designer label. Everyone in the... Read More

We were flicking through our archive and found this great shot of Acid Doll capturing the bedroom mood in Westward Bound Latex. This wonderful image was taken in 2011 during a location shoot in New York with the legendary photographer Terry Mendoza. It still looks crisp and fresh, we could not resist sharing it on our journal.
London belongs to me! The roof top garden of Park Plaza Hotel in London provided the perfect setting and backdrop for this stunning shot of Westward Bound’s Trixi Latex Dress. For model Nadia Black, visiting from Boston, the capturing of such an iconic image with the London Eye was too much to resist. We love this photograph by our good friend Ed Rocha.
