The Art of Burlesque

By Sotheby's

A head of this week’s Erotic: Passion & Desire sale in London on 16 February, Sotheby’s hosted a Valentine’s Day party sponsored by Coco De Mer featuring the crème de la crème of the burlesque scene. Miss Allison England was on hand to greet the guests on arrival at a packed New Bond Street before further entertainment from Miss Fallon Dee, who has worked alongside the likes of Stella McCartney and Elton John. There was a variety of performances throughout the evening, including a show-stopping turn by Missy Fatale plus music from Miss Polly Rae who showed the audience exactly why she’s been at the top of her game for the past ten years.
