Mariesa Mae: Lingerie Pop-Up Store Launch

Mariesa Mae Paddington Store Launch (6)Just over a week ago I went to my first ever Burlesque show, then a week later I get invited to a lingerie launch by Burlesque performer, Mariesa Mae – funny how that works!

The launch was to celebrate Mariesa Mae’s pop-up store which is perfectly housed on an quaint pink terrace on 200 Oxford St, Paddington (Sydney) which is open for an extremely limited time and due to end on Sunday (23 December, 2012).

Mariesa’s Burlesque inspired lingerie pieces are incredibly sexy and playful thanks to the unique and strategic cuts and the gorgeous delicate fabrics of silk and tulle – perfect for the boudoir (woo hoo!).  The  pieces are primarily in the Burlesque ‘staple’ colours of Black, White, Red and Pink.

Guests were treated to a Burlesque show courtesy of Mariesa Mae as well as her partner in sultry crime, Penelope Morgan.

Penelope was also a ‘live’ mannequin for the store front – yes, she got a lot of attention from the foot traffic outside.

We were also treated to a fashion show – with the men displaying behaviour of 2 extremes: verbal (and respectful) appreciation and on the opposite end, shifting uncomfortably trying to pretend that the models ‘aren’t that hot’ in their Mariesa Mae lingerie (they are!) in front of their lady friends.

The Mariesa Mae pop-up store is open until Sunday, 23 December and is housed on 200 Oxford St, Paddington. For those who cannot make it in time, you can always shop at the Mariesa Mae online store, a bit late for Christmas delivery…. but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

Which piece is your favourite? I like the black piece worn by the person in the middle of the group shot.

Mariesa Mae (the label) actually has a Kimono that I really love - that would be the favourite :)
