What is Erotica Electronica anyway? What makes it different from any other event or kinky party?
Well we're glad you asked.

♪ We like to offer you lots of time to explore: from 9pm to 3am, we bring you the best of underground bass music, burlesque performers, Aerial Hoop, Rope suspension rides and Fire shows.

♫ Dungeon? Nope. We have a Playgeon for safe, playful, kinky fun. We provide a space with benches for scenes, couches for snugging and ask kindly that any edge play is kept for other events (or the after party of your choice). Our Playgeon mistress Moon Dancer will be happy to help you learn and explore some new fun ways to play with eachother.

♪ We are a DRY event, so no booze! Intoxicants can be fun but we find that when so readily available the awareness, tenderness and empathy can leak out ones ear.
We will have a delicious assortment of non alcoholic beverages, chocolates, fruits, and other elixirs for your enjoyment :)

♫ Dresscode: we want you to come to EE in what makes you *feel* sexy, not what you think you should wear to come off as sexy. Costumes, Fetish wear, Onsies, anything; whatever makes you feel the hottest. We do ask that you keep your downstairs region mostly covered though.

♪ Music! Yes we are highly focused on good sound and quality performers and we endeavour to always bring you prime talented individuals.

♫ Workshops: come early to receive some cool tips and tricks on Rope bondage taught by our very knowledgable instructor.

♪ We are proud to work with the Consent Crew. Consent means that you don't coerce, nor feel coerced, into any activity- from hugging, to sharing a drink, to boogeying on the dance floor, to going home with someone after the party. Only yes means yes, a no should be respected; and the Consent Crew Ambassadors will be on hand with their "Got Consent" buttons and to answer any questions you might have on Consent Culture.

♫ Photography is limited to our official photographers and we ask that you leave your camera at home. We promise they will make you look hot (not that you need help- you are already smokin hot!)

Want to be involved? Just drop us a message. We can't guarantee it, as so many people want to get involved, but we always welcome your help, love, and good vibes.

Valerio Moda’s Return to the Runway ~ theprovince.com C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S /Jennifer Lopez - Booty ft. Iggy Azalea

Valerio Moda’s Return to the Runway
"After taking a season off, Valerio Moda presented a much anticipated spring/summer collection at Vancouver Fashion Week. The venerable fashion house once again is proving why it is a world class brand. Always on the cutting edge of leather work and accentuating the male silhouette to refinement, Valerio Moda is on the cusp of being up there with the greats such as Hugo Boss, Tom Ford for Gucci, Ermenegildo Zegna and Versace. Ali Mokhtarian employs only the finest leathers from Italy to create his collections. This season saw a mix of geometric shapes in the stitching. The symbiotic relationship between slim silhouettes and relaxed fits is no surprise – both are trending on the runways."

Duran Duran - Save A Prayer / KILIAN KERNER SPRING/SUMMER 2015 – MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK IN BERLIN ~ olschis-world.de

Feel the breeze deep on the inside,
look you down into your well
If you can you'll see the world in all his fire
Take a chance like all dreamers can't find another way
You don't have to dream it all, just live a day.


Alexander McQueen ~YOUR FASHION FREE PARKING goldgarage.it / Coldplay - Fix You

     Alexander McQueen
        It's all bout the details....
I don't know about you, but when I attend fashion shows and flip through magazines and fashion blogs, I always look at the details. I love accessories, hairstyles, make-up, shoes...and the list goes on. It should always compliment the collection or look and not take away from it. Like a painting. You never focus on one element, do you? I don't think so. Fashion IS ART and culture. Now I only wish my city would recognize that so that our city of Vancouver can have the reputation of being a major fashion city. We can do it. I believe so.
Since being in the industry for quite some time now, I do believe we have the potential. I know so many local designers who are ready for International status and have showcased overseas. I pray that this day will come...one day.

INTERN NEEDED. We're on each others team.

I am looking for an Intern for Frock Of Ages.
Successful applicant will learn everything I know. You will be expected to come to every event I attend, or any that I do not attend. You MUST be tech savvy. Know either Photoshop or Lightroom. You must know all the social media handles inside out and have the ability to write.
Sometimes I travel, and for the right person, that may be an option in the future, in which case you must be able to speak to media. Spanish a plus, but not essential.
This is NOT a paying job, yet...:D I believe everyone should be paid for any services rendered, but I am not in that position, yet. I have every intention to make that possible.:D
Hopefully with your help, it will be soon.
Please, I ask for a man or woman with a passion for fashion, music, the arts and all that comes with it.

If you're interested, please contact me via email, rafael.escobar700@gmail.com or message me via FB.

Collabs welcomed, with the right people.

Please send me your resume or better yet, write to me about everything you think I would love to know. Local people only. A photo would be nice, also.

Thank you, and I look forward to meeting all potential candidates.

Daft Punk - Lose Yourself To Dance...I did. / Stickboy: an art exhibition...Friday, October 17 at 7:00pm

Ayden Gallery is proud to be partnering with Vancouver Opera for its world premier of "Stickboy", a brand new production about the social impacts and implications of bullying. Over fifty artists are participating in this show, creating artworks that dialogue profoundly with Vancouver Opera's performance; the stark and striking images convey the problems of discrimination, stigmatization, and ostracism associated with bullying, and their pronounced social and personal costs. Ayden Gallery invites the public to use this exhibition as a starting point for a greater exploration and conversation concerning the issue of bullying, and its tragic consequences for our society.

The Opening Reception for "Stickboy: an art exhibition" will take place on October 17th from 7pm to 11pm and will feature a scene from the opera. Shane Koyczan, the author of the novel, Stickboy will be in attendance.

Free admission

Fashion week de paris: automne-hiver 2014/2015

"Singin' in the Rain: Les créateurs ont eu l'esprit lucide et ont pensé à nous, pauvres âmes, devons affronter un véritable hiver, c'est à dire, se confronter à de la pluie en pagaille ou de la neige!"

Rihanna - Umbrella (Orange Version) ft. JAY-Z / Edgy Rain Gear Runways ~ trendhunter.com

"The YMC Spring/Summer 2015 collection was presented during London Collections: Men and featured a range of cool and casual looks that were perfect for the city's rainy climate."
Models took to the runway stage in layered ensembles that paired light t-shirt and shorts combos with oversized rain coats and wind breakers. The pieces were designed with the weather in mind and fused cool aesthetics with the function and comfort for everyday wear. "
Here's a collection of various designers who favour the rain. These are my choices. I'm not sure that you will ever catch me in one of those fisherman hats with the eye holes, but the coats and jackets are fantastic.
Remember, when it rains, it doesn't mean you have to throw on some UGGSVILLE "Rain Coat". You can look very chic in a raincoat...just saying'...and a cool umbrella..ella...ella...hey, hey..!

Eurythmics - Here Comes The Rain Again (Remastered) / Show Review: Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015 ~ fashionbombdaily.com


"He has become quite the master of effortlessly blending new and innovative technology with bits and pieces of British culture, present and past. For the Resort 2015 collection for the Prorsum line, he found inspiration in poetry and fiction from the 20th century. The influence appeared on toppers, pencil skirts, bowling bags, and the brand’s iconic trench, which were all covered in quirky text including “Rain or Shine” and “Explore and Adventure”."

So maybe you wouldn't want to wear it all in the rain, but these looks are fantastic. Just carry an umbrella. Make sure you click the link and have a look at this remarkable collection, if you haven't already seen it. It's perfection, in my eye. I love it.
