THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE FASHIONS.
===============================

  1. The designers.
     --------------
     Jean-Paul Gaultier
     
          Allison Thurman <athurman@phoenix.cs.uga.edu> writes:
          
               French designer, considered to be the "bad boy" of Paris
               fashion. He's best known for designing Madonna's
               "bullet-cone" corsets for her videos and Blonde Ambition
               tour, and for designing similar clothes for the movie
               "The Cook, the Theif, his Wife, and her Lover".
               
     Vivienne Westwood
     
          Allison Thurman <athurman@phoenix.cs.uga.edu> writes:
          
               English designer who created the PVC and rubber "punk"
               look at her shop, Sex, in the 1970's, and one of the
               first women to use lingerie as outerwear.
               
     Pam Hogg
     
          Allison Thurman <athurman@phoenix.cs.uga.edu> writes:
          
               I dont know much about her work but ive read in some
               English magazines that some of her clothing is PVC.
               
     Lip Service, Inc.
     
          Allison Thurman <athurman@phoenix.cs.uga.edu> writes:
          
               A Los Angeles label that (if its still in business) does
               lots of lycra-spandex wear, usually with lacing and/or
               little daggers on it. I've not seen much of the mens
               wear, but the womens is moslty leggings and minidresses.
               
  2. The models.
     -----------
     Anette Kellendonk:
     
          Born 1965 in Wuppertal near Dsseldorf, Germany.
          She's 1.70 m (5'6") high (without heels!) and weighs around 50 kg
          (112 lbs).
          
          She used to work closely with Peter W. Czernich, publisher of
          "Skin Two, Deutsche Ausgabe" then <<O>> , as photographer but now
          works with several others. Her pictures has been in Playboy, Bild
          and in particular in early issues of <<O>> .
          
          She released a techno-dance maxi-single entitled "The Fetish" in
          1991. The video for this song have been shown on MTV and in it she
          shows a wide selection of her PVC and latex wardrobe...
          
          About this maxi-single, Ido Amin writes:
          
               The label is BOO RECORDS. I have "The Fetish" on BOO
               00512 (12") and on its cover it mentions it's also
               available on BOO 00507 (7"), BOO 00515 (12"PD), BOO
               00505 (5"CD). On the cover it also says GEMA LC 6559.
               Distributor is Discovery, Pf 1255, 4044 Kaarst.,
               Germany, which is also A.K.'s fanclub.
               
               Quality? Not rec.music.materpieces stuff, being two
               years old, and not up to current MTV or dance standards.
               I kinda like it anyway.
               
          Has now begun a career as a fetish fashion designer with a shop
          appropriately named ' Anette K. Fashion ' in Dusseldorf, Germany.
          
     Info on other models much appreciated!
     
  3. The photographers.
     ------------------
     Peter W. Czernich:
     
          Very active. Has worked primarily with Anette K. but now works
          mostly with varying models. He's the editor and publisher of
          "Maquis Magazine", the successor to <<O>> of which he also was the
          editor and publisher of for several years.
          
     Trevor Watson:
     
          British photographer who works primarily with black & white
          photography. Among his best works are the series he made for
          Ectomorph.
          
  4. Advocacy groups.
     ----------------
     These are organizations or groups of equal minded people who work
     actively to communicate our interest and way of living to the rest of
     the society, fighting for it in court or on the battlefield of the
     media if nessesary.
     
     National Leather Association.
     
          knewt@world.std.com writes:
          
               They promote the "leather lifestyle", which includes DFP
               and some BDSM. It is the only sort of U.S. Nationwide
               advocacy group, so it is important for people in the US
               to know about it.
               
          Jeffrey Hurwit <jhurwit@netcom.com> writes:
