Chances are that you already know Jade Vixen! She worked with the worlds top fetish photographers, been featured in numerous fetish magazine and modelled latex fashions from every latex designer out there.
I meet up with the Jade during this years Fetish Evolution weekend, where I asked her for a interview, but I got more than just a interview…
3xL: How and when did you become a model?
Jade: I modeled as a hobby for a few years, starting in 2005, mainly to document my extensive fetish wardrobe. I didn’t really take a modeling career seriously until 2007. I worked as a commercial print model when I was much younger, but I don’t count that as part of my current type of modeling.
3xL: Why did you choose fetish modeling?
Jade: I love fetish clothing! Fetish clothing is intended to provoke and arouse. Fetish fashion was always my particular kink, I started buying fetish clothing and shoes while I was still in high school! Everything from tight lacing corsets to extreme stiletto heels to shiny latex. I love the skin tight fit of fetish clothing and how flagrantly sexual it is. I love dressing in latex, whether I am at home, attending events, or doing a photo shoot. The smell, look, and sensation of slippery shiny latex on my skin is a true aphrodisiac. I am a fetishist first, model second.
3xL: Why Jade Vixen? Where did that name come from?
Jade: Jade was a name I used on the fetish club scene, I added Vixen to it since I needed a surname for my fetish persona. There were so many girls named “Jade” on the fetish scene, I had to make my name somewhat unique.
3xL: From who do you get your inspiration for your work?
Jade: John Willie’s Bizarre is my main inspiration. The idealized female figure depicted in those vintage fetish magazines (long thin limbs, tiny nipped in waist, curvy breasts and butt) was my feminine ideal. I started collecting fetish magazines in the mid-90s when I was introduced to the fetish scene, Atomage, Marquis, Skin Two, <O>, Secret. Heavy Rubber and I still have most of them! At this point, I strive to find a balance between shooting new designs for clothing designers and content for my members. Some times, a new latex design or colour will inspire me to do a themed shoot. Or the acquisition of a rare pair of collectible hand made high heels. An exotic location to shoot in also helps! I do some of my best work in the most unexpected locales.
3xL: Do you see latex clothing as a toy, a tool or something else?
Jade: I feel that latex clothing has an appeal far beyond fashion. Slipping into a latex ensemble is like undergoing a transformation into a hyper sexual, slinky, slippery persona.
3xL: Tell about your new members site – jadevixen.com, what’s it all about?
Jade: It is all about me and my extensive fetish fashion wardrobe, photographed in a glamorous manner. It has a heavy focus on latex fetish fashion and extreme fetish heels, with some exquisite corsets, lingerie, and nylons. As of right now, I have nearly 7000 images, grouped as sets of 40-70 photos. 95% of my content is exclusive to my site and you cannot see it any where else online! I try to update at least once a week to keep my members happy! The majority of my photo updates feature exquisite custom latex from some of the top designers.
3xL: And finally, what’s next for Jade Vixen?
Jade: World domination! I’m starting by accepting the Fashion Editor position for Lust, Love & Latex. More fetish performances at various fetish events around the world, and much more fetish modelling!
3xL: You are welcome on the team! I’m looking forward to hear the latest news and insights from latex fashion scene.
