GOLDEN DAWN

Inspired by early 20th-century mysticism, Western esotericism, cabaret, and the Golden Age of burlesque itself. A dark initiate's cloak is shed to reveal one of Faye's most dazzling costume creations, entirely gold and as laden with numerological and representational symbolism as it is with hand-beaded fringe, rhinestones, and tassels. There are plenty of nods to the iconic pieces and processes used in early-to-mid-century burlesque costuming throughout, with a focus on classic poses and movements, audience interaction, and dazzling vintage glamour.
