Rocking The BMVA
Unleashing the spirit of heavy metal in the capital of techno
Let Me Entertain You
On the 17th of June I had the great honour of being the headline fashion act at the Berlin Music Video Awards 11th edition. Together with my heavy metal models and special guests Cybortion and Santana Sexmachine I took to the runway to invite the audience to a walk on the wild side.
Not only the SHOWTIME collection, but my entire brand is about merging fashion and entertainment. And if I can bake a rock show, a drag show and a fashion show together into a 7-minute pleasure ride of sparkling madness, you can rest assured that I will.

For those of you who don't know the Berlin Music Video Awards, it's a 4-day event celebrating the art of music video making. On top of a stellar party with cool people, it's as the title implies an award show with prices given out in different categories every night.
This year, not only did I put on the glammiest fashion show, I was also invited to be on the jury for the best art director category. It was great fun watching music videos from creators all over the world and being a part of the process of picking a winner.
Thursday evening, the night when my price category was presented, James and I took a break from our show preparations to attend the ceremony and the after party.
For this special occasion I dressed the hosts of the show, Iona and Bianca in my Hellfire designs, while James were rocking pieces from the new Men's SHOWTIME collection and myself wearing the Space Bride Catsuit from the Atelier. Truly a night to remember.
DAY OF THE SHOW
Get a sneak-peek behind the scenes of the big day. From getting ready at the studio, to the photo shoots, to the glittering carpet and finally the show, in this video shot for us exclusively by Olga Rimsky.
Our queen of the 80s style, make up artist Eavan Derbyshire, giving each model a look that matches their personality as well as the outfit they will be wearing on the runway.
The Epic Premiere Of Cybortion
Already when hearing James Logan Woodward's solo project last summer, I knew I wanted him to perform live at my next fashion show. Even though no songs were yet released out into the world. His powerful voice together with his stage presence and willingness to push the limits makes him perfect to star the collection that celebrates rock' n' roll. The modern rockstar, in every sense. So naturally, when I was offered to do a show at the BMVA, I asked James to join me on stage. And what a show he put on!
ARRIVING IN STYLE
Making an entrance onto the glittering carpet together with my muses for the collection; Jasmin Thundersteel and James Logan Woodward. We're ready to rock that runway!
It’s never boring with Santana Sexmachine in the house. This queen rocked that runway hard and gave us all a heavy metal drag show to remember. We got to see her rip off the dress on stage to reveal the sexiest Lightning Bolt Set to date. Ripping her net tights, crawl the runway and headbang. Making love to the camera - quite literally at one point! She came to entertain, and entertain she did.
It's safe to say Drag Race Sweden made a huge mistake sending home such a talanted queen. After this show everyone in that room was on #teamsexmachine.

In-between the red carpet appearance, interviews and the show we squeezed in an outdoor backstage editorial shoot for Skinner Magazine.
