Last night was the inaugural night of Lingerie Fashion Week/2013. Intimates brand FYI by Dani Read kicked off the newly minted festivities. The S&M inspired creations, complete with restraints, gags, harnesses and leashes, are not for the faint of heart. In fact, their tagline reads, “Women are weapons. Dress yourself as such.” The collection was unapologetically bold and radiated power, attitude and dark sexuality. The accessories were surprisingly delicate and subtle, with gold chains trailing down collars and thick metal belts cheekily named “Love Handles Belt” or “Mistress Leash”. The collection had an Egyptian motif which was quite apparent in the final look which was a flowing white robe topped with a gold Isis Headpiece.
