It’s International Fetish Day.
It’s the day we really get to crunch into some of “John Willie's” work and his desire for particular objects.
—but we're all intimately involved with desiring particular objects.
John Willie knew first-hand that SKY-HIGH STILETTOS are charged with erotic appeal among enthusiasts.
Alongside his wife, muse, and inspiration, Holly Anna Faram, he belonged to a clandestine community of enthusiasts with a richly diverse and liberal view on consensual erotic pleasures.
With pen and lens, John Willie set about realising a fetish-inspired magazine to provide them with a resource to savour consensual pleasures in their "own sweet way", as he would often write.
He called his fashion magazine BIZARRE and published his illustrations, Stiletto designs, photography, articles and letters from readers at irregular intervals from 1945 to 1957.
Between its covers, John Willie buttoned up ideas of the fetish aesthetic.
Today, John Willie is feted as a visionary artist, his work influencing creatives throughout the visual arts, fashion, performance, and...
...our Sweet Gwendoline French Gin!
High Heels for Happiness!
As always, ideas were brought to life by Nick Paparone at New Good Design.
