She also took burlesque one step further by becoming an ambassador of All Walks. She promotes body positivity through her work, and has now joined the organisation founded by Caryn Franklin, Debra Bourne and Erin O’Connor.

They work with influential catwalk designers and top industry creatives to celebrate more diversity within the fashion industry. Bravo!

She has also graced the runways of such designs as Agent Provocateur – of course! – and you can check her out (above and below) in the Ziad Fashion Show at London Fashion Week.

The avant garde designs, high fashion and Operatic music are oh-so burlesque, the mix of high fashion and exhibitionists. Immodesty Blaize strips out of her amazing gown(s) and shows off those voluptuous curves then shows a little more.
