Twenty years ago there were only three latex designers in all of North America and only one in New York: The Baroness. Beginning in a small studio in 1994, The Baroness was a pioneer, selling her latex fashions to private clients by appointment only, and wholesale to select boutiques. In 1995 she launched the world’s first online latex clothing store at Baroness.com.
The Baroness has been instrumental in the emergence of rubber from the darkness of dungeons into the bright lights of the silver screen, high fashion catwalks and red carpet award shows. Over the past 20 years she has come to be known as “The Grand Dame of Latex”.
During her twenty years of exploring the unique properties of latex and its construction, The Baroness has influenced the fashion industry through collaborations with Lacoste, NYC men’s wear designer Patrik Ervell, women’s wear designer Nourish Ferrari, and Opening Ceremony. Her inflatable straight jacket was exhibited in the Fashion Institute of Technology museum.
The Baroness’ haute couture designs have made her the go-to designer for an A-list of celebrities, latex lovers, and the fashion elite, including Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo (who she dressed for the Met Gala Punk Ball); Performers Lady GaGa, Nikki Minaj, and Beyonce; Victoria’s Secret models Naomi Campbell and Giselle; actress Chloe Sevigny; downtown diva Amanda Lepore; and burlesque dancer Dita von Teese; plus many celebrities whose affection for latex remains private.
As an authority on latex, alternative life styles, and clothing and power, The Baroness and her work have been publicized in countless books and magazines including Valerie Steele’s Fetish, fashion, Sex and Power; The New York Times fashion section; V magazine; Vogue; The Village Voice; Mademoiselle; Maxim and others. She has been featured on both HBO’s Real Sex and The Discovery Channel.
With her flair for style, bold personality, and artistic vision The Baroness has performed, lectured and hosted parties, events and fashion shows worldwide.
Ten years ago The Baroness expanded to her retail boutique in New York’s East Village, with a street level store and workshop below, where all latex designs are made by hand. This woman-owned business remains the sole latex-only shop in New York.

Hold on to your (latex) hoods rubberfolk for Lucas Messerer aka Soul Focus will be back in the Northern Hemisphere toot sweet [sic] for his second world tour.
Last year the Australian photographic talent responsible for the infamous Rubber Bastard Association and Rubber Bastards calendar left his Ozzie shores to stomp around the globe in his Buffalo platform stacks. No fetish aficionados escaped the genius lens of Lucas as he snapped a host of amateur and professional models.
The lubed up glitterati of the fetish fraternity slipped and slid over each other for the chance to be in front of Lucas’ latex loving lens. Dirtydollbaby, MissOlympia, Lottie Kixx, Miss Velour, Latex Lucy and Rubberdude, to name but a half dozen, are some of the blessed crew on whom Soul Focus worked his photographic magic when he toured the planet in 2013. Oh yes, and you may add yours truly to that lucky list!
Lucas is kicking off his comeback tour in style at the Fetish Evolution event in Essen, Germany over the Easter weekend: 18th to 22nd April 2014. From there he’ll be hitting France, then the UK. After that the world is his proverbial lobster. If you want him to come to your home town then book a photo shoot with him. He can be contacted via his website www.soulfocusstudio.net
Jackson Rocco, one of our beloved past contributors, has written an excellent guide to kinky play. The book called “The Book of Filthy Sex Games” is a huge manual using 69 games covering the 100 most popular kinks, fetishes and BDSM practices.
Jackson Rocco says he was inspired by seeing things go wrong in clubs: “I decided to put this book together after seeing so many newbie players and so-called experts get into trouble.” he continues “The fact is, there has been a steady rise in interest in kink over the past ten years not just because of Fifty Shades Trilogy, but because of general pop culture. I want this work to be the first to have both instruction and ideas and still be relevant and inclusive for all adults – both novice and experienced whether they’re in the mainstream or on the alternative scene.”
The 320-page compendium includes 13 stand-alone Getting Your Kinks sections, with lifestyle advice and special articles, a comprehensive Safety First section, game-specific safety advice, equipment, attire, venue, duration and resource tips, a kink, fetish and BDSM Glossary of Terms, all written in what Rocco calls “a supportive and no-nonsense selves-help style”.
“The Book of Filthy Sex Games – A Guide to Kink, Fetish and BDSM Through Adult Play” by Jackson Rocco is Exclusively available on Amazon Kindle till June.
“The inspiration for the collection started with stories from Japanese folklore, it spread then to demons and legends, hence the outfits’ names.”
“There is a dark and magic side to the latex material that suits those imaginary creatures and I felt would suit our clientele as well. I loved especially the tale of Jorogumo, the spider that can change its appearance into that of a seductive woman. I wanted to experiment with capes and shapes that would suit the witch-woman I had in mind. All of it in latex rubber, naturally, and suitable for party.” says Florence Druart of Torture Garden Clothing.
JOROGUMO is an Exclusive Torture Garden Clothing Collection by Florence Druart for House of Harlot and it is available right now online or from House of Harlot’s atelier just off London’s Brick Lane.
