Klawdya Rothschild, the founder of the costume and couture company KLAWTEX that specializes in latex, has been denied a space at the popular art space “Shops at the Loom”, as the landlords decided her store was “too sexual” and “violating their religious beliefs,”. This happen after she paid a security deposit plus three months rent to the owners, money that she is still waiting to be returned to her.
Klawdya can’t believe what happened. “I’m well respected among local artists, and in major high end fashion. They just insisted I was opening a sex shop.” She continues “The concept of latex clothing is still considered trashy to some I suppose. I’m just confused because I have some major A list clients, and you would think they would want that in their space.”
It’s sad to see that this kind of religious prejudice is still striving in a modern city as New York. I really hope that Klawdya gets her money back and find a more open minded place to open her store.
If anyone know any good spaces for a latex store in N.Y. area, please contact Klawdya at: email@example.com
It’s a buyers marked! More and more physical stores close down as a result of increased competition and shoppers who just browse and buy online. This especially goes for niche businesses such as fetish clothing stores.
In mid May, we saw the closure of the Latexa Fashion store here in Copenhagen, who been supplying the local community with latex fashions since 1995.
Latexa Fashion is still selling online and cutting away the expenses for staff and rent, they could reduce their prices with 30%!
Blackstyle has added a selection of creative structured latex sheeting to their already popular “latex by the metre” range there caters to latex designers and DIY’s latex crafters.
The new structured latex sheeting is made of 100% natural rubber and comes in lava, leopard and striped, in a limited selection of color and thickness.
The size of each latex sheeting is approximately 80 x 100 cm, but as every sheet is handmade, there may be a slight variations in color, thickness and size.
