The rubber lovers of PASSIONAL slide n’ dance at HYDRATE 1.31

We just got photos of last Saturday’s PASSIONAL field trip to Hydrate, the big gay water park dance party.

Twisted Life threw an awesome party that was unfortunately under-attended due to about an inch of snowfall. But the hardcore latex-lovin’ weekend staff of PASSIONAL Boutique drove across the river after work to slide into latex, and slide down the water-slides along with our neighbor and leather-crafter, John of Anonymous Leather.

Valentine’s gifts for him : It’s a wrap!

Valentine’s is the season for fun, flirtation and fashion so there is no better time than to wrap yourself or wrap your loved one for an unforgettable date.

FOR HIM- FOR HIM- FOR HIM

Lingerie 4 Him:
We expect a big delivery of men’s lingerie by February 1st! The dudely among us will love the new looks from Male Power, Gregg to wrap up his assets and tease your voyeuristic sensibilities.

Get ready to ride in new exotic styles by Gregg

Pig Gear:

slide him inot these neoprene codpiece pants by Nasty Pig for a Valentine's date you will both remember.

All manner of tomboy will love the waterproof, nightclub-proof, clubwear and darewear by Nasty Pig! Sexy pants, tops and bedroom gear for him.

Kilts:
Nothing beats the breezy comfort of our collection of  wraps for men made by Utilikilt, Amerikilt and other designers with functional pockets, manly looks  and rugged dress up for festivals, camping and even carpentry.

Leather:
Next to a man in uniform, there is something irresistable about a man in hot skins. With new motorcycle-style pants, chaps  and vests for $100 and up, there hasn’t ever been a better time to live out your leather fashion fantasy with him.

Slide your guy into some sexy skins- starting at just $7.99 for gloves and $49.99 for vests available thru 3XL

Rubber:

From simple to detailed, latex is a whole new fashion universe. Slide him into some so he can experience it for himself!

Latex glides onto him with a little lubrication, and nothing quite matches the sensation of rubber sliding across the skin and tightly hugging (but also smoothing) the manly bulges of his body.  Wet but waterproof, there is no worry about a waiter at the pub spilling a drink on his new latex jeans!

How did you become interested in fashion design?

I watched the movie The Fifth Element and immediately fell in love with Jean Paul Gaultier’s work. I was 9 (years old).

When did you begin designing fashions?
I started to really get into fashion design when I was 13. I started to make my designs when I was 14. It was mostly prom dresses back then.

Where did you learn the skills to design and create fashion?
I learned how to sew from watching my mom make quilts and dresses for special occasions. I taught myself how to draw by looking a pictures in magazines.
Other education? I’m very happy I decided to further my education through college. I’ve learned a lot of new techniques that will help further my career, like web design (smiles)

What is your philosophy regarding the art of fashion design?

Destroy and deviate from the norms.

What skills are necessary to design fashion?
An open mind, an extensive knowledge of fashion history and construction skills. Most importantly, though, time management. You have to know how to budget your time, or else you won’t get anything done.

Of those skills mentioned, which do you feel are your strong points?
My biggest strength is definitely a knowledge of fashion history,
Challenges?
My weak point is time management. I’m the world’s best procrastinator.

The winning design - complete with pocketwatch, perfectly mixed stripes and other fun design elements expertly sewn.

How important do you think sewing skills are to designing?
Absolutely 100% important. You have to know how to take something from 2D to 3D, otherwise there’s no point in designing.

What fashion artists or designers influence your work?

Robert Cary-Williams, Gaultier, Lacroix, House of Holland, Blaak

What is the most important element of your work- what would you like your designs to be famous for?

Their simple, yet intricate design. It’s the little things that count, like seam finishes and button choice.

What are your future fashion design plans?
I would love to have my own line one day, and maybe a small boutique, but for now I’d like to be a design assistant.

Who do you expect to see wearing your designs in five years?

I cater towards young women and men with a strong love of old mixed with new.
Who do you HOPE to see (sky is the limit)?
I hope to see someone like Amy Lee wearing my clothes….that would be amazing.

Any fun and interesting projects coming your way in the near future?
Right now I’m working on my senior collection (which is Steampunk themed), and I’m hoping to start up my first menswear line shortly after.

Do you have advice to other aspiring designers? Possibly advice that you wished somebody had given you?
Honestly, just manage your time well, and make yourself a separate budget for sewing supplies. Time and money seem to just disappear.

If you were invited to show your first collection on a New York runway tomorrow, what music would you choose?
Tool. No contest. They’re the best “do everything to” music…

If you had to choose a different life path (besides fashion design), what other career do you think you might pursue?
A writer…that’s what I wanted to do when I was a kid, but I was better a fashion design.

Are there any awful fashion trends or common fashion faux pas that drive you nuts
Dear God, if I have to see one more pair of black leggings worn with brown boots I will cry. Black and brown make me frown.
