We here at Honour are lucky enough to get to speak to interesting people from all over the world, who love all things Fetish and Kink. Recently we spoke a local Brazilian Kinkster, Verena, about Fetish, Rubber and funny stories…………….
Q: Verena, how did you get into owning a Fetish Fashion store in Brazil?
A: I was a shoe designer of many brands in Brazil for almost 19 years. Suddenly, I found out that I wasn’t happy that way. I thought that I should do something that would make me and my friends happy. So I decided to launch a Concept Xshop, this is the place where people feel comfortable to make their fantasy come true.
Q: Brazil, that’s a pretty cool place. What’s it’s like selling Fetish Fashion there?
A: It is a lovely place. People here are not so open as the europeans are. But the ones who like fetish, know exactly what they want. This is why I chose to sell latex clothing in my store, it’s also my own fetish and almost impossible to find here in Brazil.
Q: Brazil is obviously very famous around the world for Carnival, would you have any advice for people who are shopping for costume or outfits for Carnival, especially first timers.
A: Brazil is a big country and Carnival here is different from state to state. If you go to Rio de Janeiro (place where I was born) you should wear shorts to Carnival street parties and a type of nice fantasy costume to Santa Teresa, it´s a neighborhood that has the best Carnival street party ever, in my opinion. If you go to Salvador, you´ll need an Abada to go on the eletric trios. In Pernambuca, it´s better to use skirts and light clothes. Latex is out of the question for Carnival, unless you use mini skirts and shorts, because the weather is like 40° in summer. Here in SP, the Carnival street parties are getting a ride on the parties that people do in Rio de Janeiro, so if you enjoy fetish fantasy, you should come over and see what we got here in Just Lust I´ll give all the assistance you need ;)………
Q: Do you have any funny stories you are willing to share with us about your experiences selling Fetish Fashion?
A: There was a lady that came at the end of january, it seemed like she was just looking. I thought that she wasn’t going to buy anything, but still gave some assistance. She began to talk to me about Pernambuco Carnival etc and I showed her some simple fantasie outfits, she asked about the outfit that she was looking at, it was a lovely piece of latex clothing ( they stay in a special part of the store), I explained a bit about latex clothing, we went upstairs so she could try on a few items, and she got stuck in a dress and began to laugh so much that I wasn’t able to help her. After about 10 min of laughing without stopping we managed to get her out of the dress. She ended up buying the dress because she liked the fact she got stuck in it. LOL
Q: What is your favorite fashion Item that you stock that comes from Honour?
Just before posting this article we hear that Verena might be coming over to London in September for Fetish week. We here at Honour hope she does, so we can meet her and shake her hand for being a leader in the fetish community in Brazil.
Whats your favourite dress or item from the Honour.co.uk store.
