The Lady and Miss Wax

Late last month Ladies Lotto was one of the few press outlets invited to the Raw x Wax holiday preview shoot at Ruth Roche's Rare Studios in New York City. I got a first look at what is going to be one of the most sought after pieces on the street. Lady Ness -- the alter ego of Rawthentix co-founder and editor, Vanessa Diaz -- and Miss Wax, AKA Kylee Fauss will introduce their limited edition shoulder harness to the world just in time for Winter 2010/11.

It's plain to the naked eye that the shoulder harness is not for the faint of heart.
The harness is made of premium leather; with a choice of gold, silver or gun metal studs, and coordinating chains of different lengths. Each piece will bear the logo of Miss Wax and Lady Ness on laser-etched charms. The harness can be worn several different ways; off the shoulder, a chain can be wrapped around the body and it's versatile enough to wear over either shoulder.

The piece was inspired by bold, iconic women like Wendy O, Tina Turner as Auntie Entity, don diva Grace Jones and Siouxie Sioux. Lady Ness was also inspired by the punk rock scene, and she and Miss Wax share an affinity for military as well as 50s inspired looks. The harness stands on it's own, as an element that can be used to dress up, dress down or just plain blow up an outfit. It doesn't matter if you pair it with an ultra sheer Spaks top and skinnies or a basic sheath -- all eyes will be on you -- you are going to kill it.

The shoot couldn't have gone off without a hitch without the amazing ladies on set; Fatima Sheikh, Ruth Roche, Elizabeth Sagarin and publicist turned model, Sarah LaRosa. We're not done with the Lady Ness x Miss Wax collaboration. We're extremely excited about the harness so stay tuned for more news about the final product and a little unveiling action. As always, Ladies Lotto brings you news fresh out of the oven.
