Q: Ever wondered where strippers get their costumes?
A: Quite a lot of the time, from each other. Any dancer will tell you, every changing room is a veritable trading ground of pre-loved/unworn/unwanted garments on sale at a snip of the original price.
As part of the Art of Stripping event at Red Gallery, Shoreditch, East London Strippers Collective are organising a Stripper-Wear Fair – an extremely rare opportunity to rummage through piles of womens’ undies, without judgement!
The public will be invited to browse among tables of pre-loved stilettos, sparkly gowns, costume jewellery, suspenders, garters, nipple-tassels and bras, bikinis, feather boas, and anything else you can think of to accessorise an exotic dancer.
Q: What’s the difference between the stuff strippers wear, and the stuff I can buy from any lingerie company?
A: Durability. Another thing any dancer will tell you is that you can spend hundreds of pounds on incredible lingerie only for it to fall apart because it wasn’t designed to be used much. Strippers’ costumes are made to last, and stand up to the demands of the job. Fastenings are designed to be easily undone, seams are reinforced, and good old lycra never lets us down.
Come and see for yourselves, and pick up a bargain (maybe a costume for our closing party?)
