How did you become interested in fetish/BDSM?
It's a very long story. I started having interest in alternative arts around 11 when I moved to Lyon in France which has a large fetish and alternative scene and, of course, I immediately fell in love with the imagery. At first with Eric Stanton and Allen Jones but also I got lucky to meet the locals who made me discover a bunch of different artists. I discovered the beauty of latex and a real passion for heels which was followed real quick with bondage and more extreme fetishism.
Do you enjoy fetishism/BDSM play in your personal life, and if so what are you into?
I do, it varies a lot on the person and the mood. Plus, a little mystery in personal life is away great to keep. Be careful, this girl bites.
Are there any fetishes that you don't find appealing?
Not really. I'm one of those persons who believe you can't know you don't like it unless you try it, at least twice.
What excites you about fetish modeling?
Is this a joke? Everything is exciting about being a fetish model. The aesthetic is pushed to an extreme, the character you are is pushed to an extreme, your body is pushed to an extreme. It's freedom of expression with a very sexy edge. You are not a model wearing cool clothes, you are the incarnation of a fetishism, a goddess. I like to model the role of a powerful woman rather than a bimbo. But don't get me wrong to me modeling is being able to show yourself as much as acting someone you're not.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
Latex and corsetery that's for sure. I have to say that all this waist training need to be used for something but corsets are one of my fetishism as well. The feel on the skin, the pressure on the bones and your body being just one thing : CURVES. When I was a kid I went to a corset exhibition and fell in love with it all : the lace, the art, the details, the shapes...
What are your least favorites?
None. Even though I wouldn't wear the outfit myself, I'm always up for a challenge. When you do modeling professionally you get to do similar gigs a lot because of your look and your body shape so anything that makes me go out of my little routine is an excitement.
Do you think pinup and fetish are becoming part of the mainstream culture?
I think there was a taboo about fetish culture that society starts to erase. People are more open minded simply and this is great ! Fetishism are not a culture to me, I believe we all have some but do not accept them all the time.
Everything becomes mainstream at some point, it's a matter of time and of what celebrity is going to have the guts to start the trend. Couple of years ago nobody would have wear so many studs, unless you were a punk, at the moment you can't walk the streets without seeing some everywhere.
Plus you know, like would say Oscar Wilde "Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months." There is no such thing as mainstream culture, only a period where this style or that style will be picked by media to make you feel like it's the trendy mainstream "culture" for now. I'm totally not complaining though, there should definitely be more Bettie Page and Marilyn Monroe in the streets.
What kind of music do you like?
Do not ever ask this question to a musician. I've been in the metal/punk scene very young however I'm very eclectic, most of what you'll find on my playlist is :
French Black Metal (Ad Hominem, Peste Noire, Eternal Majesty...)
Classical (Wagner, Chopin, Schubert...)
Punk (The Distillers, Cheap Sex, Discharge...)
Quiet a lot of different other kind of metal (Toxic Holocaust, Slayer, Annihilator, Carach Angren, Cripper, Marduk, Windir, Necrophagist, Pittbulls in the Nursery, Taake, Watain...)
Oldies awesomeness (ACDC, Kiss, Joan Jett, Siouxsie, Babes in Toyland, The Cure, Cacophony, The Doors...)
Electronic party bea(s)ts (Inspector Dubplate, Combichrist, Ben Evans...)
And much, much, more...
What do you like to do for fun?
Going crazy on a dirt bike or a race bike is the most sexy activity I do for fun : Nothing better than a powerful engine and freedom. I go to concerts/festivals, enjoy some good riffs and spend quality "crazy" time with friends. Traveling around the world, discovering cultures, landscape and other local beauties. Then, read, read and read some more, anything or everything really that makes me learn or mind travel. Listening or playing music is such a delight too. Recently discovered the pleasure of shooting guns in Texas but my heart goes first to going for a walk in nature, leaving the city craziness behind and simply feeling alive with only animals and plants around. I guess it makes me be a bad ass hippie.
