One day in early September, the fetish World’s Royal Rene, that of Wasteland legend, dropped by the DeMasK Amsterdam store, inviting Louva & Anton to put on a fetish fashion show at his upcoming November event. The DeMasK Duo was so up for this, as the newly rejuvenated label has now the Gods on it’s side and the wind in it’s sails. The show seed of a hardcore fetish & fashion gene, was immediately planted in a shiny soil of 100% pure fertilized kink and grew faster than bamboo in bondage it did!
Right away, Louva got her ultra-stylish-creative Parisian designing juices a flowing and within no time, an array of stunning outfits began to take shape on paper. With Anton the cool-calm-collected operator, keeping a steady hand & eye on overall developments, drawing on his past experiences with the massive DeMasK parties of EuroPerve fame. Throwing into the mix, their recently appointed assistant, the London fetish-fotographer Luke Lenz, DeMask sure had all angles covered. Dutch, French & English make a truly potent pedigree of kink, a formidable fetish cocktail to serve up a show.
In the 10 weeks between the initial taking the lid of Louva’s creative pen, to the show’s applause almost taking the club’s roof off, a truly mammoth effect went into production with DeMasK’s Amsterdam HQ, became an ever increasing hub of activity.
The big night arrived, the club was heaving and in full blown party mode, then suddenly, the club’s music switched to a different beat, lights shone to a different place, a sure sign that the stage was about to rage! This was the very moment backstage we had all being waiting for, the 10 weeks was now 10 seconds and the ‘q’ to go, we were about to know!
What followed was a show that has since been cemented into the ‘Fetish Hall of Fame’. Those 12 glorious, notorious minutes on stage, are now infamously known as the ‘DeMask’s Dirty Dozen’. The DeMasK stage was an utterly lawless, moraless scene straight from the Temple of a kinky Caligula and oh how the heaving, hedonistic crowd loved it!
The show which featured DeMasK’s latest latex designs of ‘face sitting pants’ and all encased male/female ‘playsuits’, had the crowd rocking and a reeling.
Starring were a ‘Mighty Mistress’, ‘body in bag’, ‘XXX star’, ‘Gorgeous Gazelles’ strutting down the catwalk, ‘Naughty Nurse’ + her 2 nutcases in latex strait-jackets, ‘Sexty Nine’, and with Holland’s finest, Ancilla Tilia being DeMasK’s ‘beautiful bride’, sashaying down the runway in the showpiece wedding gown. A wonderful creation, that had beauty, had style, a fairy-tale charm, with a futuristic Sci-fi sex appeal.
Then came the fantastic finale, an emotional moment with the DeMasK Duo, Louva & Anton, fittingly leading out the cast to receive rapturous, raucous applause!
What was witnessed in that sexsational show were all aspects of DeMask’s DNA, the love & lust of heavy rubber, stylish & outrageous designs of beautiful colours, all drenched and dripping in sexual decadence. Like the famous scene from ‘Spartacus’, after seeing this show, we all took one step forward and said ‘I am DeMasK’! DeMasK sure is back and what an awesome way to announce it!
There’s always a ripple of relief once a show has passed of perfectly, then all around the smiles could beam with even the linear straight DeMasK logo momentarily morphed into a big, curved proud smile to join them.
If you didn’t get to see the show, worry not as more sinful shows will be coming and until then, a video will be screened on DeMask.com to keep the memories simmering.
There’s no doubt a 2nd coming of the fetish scene is now building an unstoppable force of momentum here in Amsterdam, with DeMask once again through it’s designs and it’s famous fetish feasts called EuroPerve, blazing the trail.
But wait, something once again stirs deep down in DeMasK’s creative-cave, there’s no relying on the past, the next show already being pieced together, one link of kink at a time and next spring the whole kinky chain will be revealed to our fabulous fetish friends!
Amsterdam is about to shake & stir the Fetish World once again!
