Heather Renée Sweet known better as Dita Von Teese – the queen of burlesque, model, successful businesswoman, costume designer, dancer… She can be introduced by many names, but to me she definitely is the ultimate queen of vintage fashion, with a personal style that is unique and charming, having the aura of a retro allure. Her pin up girl inspired style is well rooted in the 1940ties fashion, with show stopping red carpet creations and complimented by beautiful make up.

In the beginning Heather (later knows as Dita) worked with lingerie, being a saleswoman and later on a buyer, channeling her passion for elaborate underwear in her early career. Formal education in costume design helped her greatly in creating her professional image, once she became a fetish model known under her artistic pseudonym as Dita Von Teese. With time, her career evolved towards exclusive burlesque shows, with a famous Martini glass performance as well as appearing in advertising campaigns for lingerie brands such as Agent Provocateur. Today Dita is famous for her personal style, cooperation with Cointreau, brief marriage to Marilyn Manson as well as her artistic burlesque performances.
