Venus In Furs Collection:

Venus in Furs is a novel written by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch in 1870, about an erotic passion that goes against the norms of nineteenth-century sexuality and gender in which a man and a woman’s pleasure is based on him becoming her slave. This is the story that named the fetish masochism.

In this new collection the designer encompasses sensuality and lustfulness in what is half concealed or intentionally disclosed. Garments are seamed fabrics of silk and chiffon, with discreet overlay openings that give a lover full access to breast and pomp. A handful of pieces have leather attachments that add edge to the garment and can be easily removed by its magnetic fastening.

Marika Vera discovered fashion in a summer course at Swinburne University in Melbourne Australia. After finishing a Management Degree she moved to London to pursue a design degree at Istituto Marangoni.
