My Favourite Museum....The V&A explores Burlesque

I was extremely privileged to be invited to give a workshop at the world renowned V&A Museum last week as part of the ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition season. David Bowie was a master of the alter ego and of visual spectacle which is something us Burlesque gals know a little about too! The 3 hour session was a basic introduction to the history and industry of burlesque as well as a practical movement class. I was also invited to show some of my costumes to the ladies - dresses, corsets, nipple tassels and all! It was a wonderful way to spend an evening, thank you to Marisa, Bryony and the whole team at The V&A for having me!
