As we have always done and will continue with forever, Von Gutenberg loves to champion one of our family when they have something new to shout about. The wonderful Dawn Mostow, of Dawnamatrix Designs, latex designer and maker extraordinaire, is featured in Seattle’s own Ville Magazine this month.
There are many factors that makes the magazine’s “The Rising Of Dawn,” piece about Dawn’s haute couture so special. For one, Dawn herself is the sole model in the shoot. Secondly, her amazing creations, from her Butterfly Corset to her Hooded Opera Coat to her Laser Cut Rose Gown, are just some of the many wardrobe pieces featured. The pictures, taken by Jessica Drake, were shot in the stunning Dunn Gardens of Seattle. And lastly, and most interestingly, Dawn is posing in these shots with falcons.
As Dawn admits: “At first I was pretty scared of the falcon going for my eyes, but then I got comfortable holding these birds.” She reports a real sense of power when handling the majestic creatures. Looking into their inhuman eyes she says was “very inspiring.”
As you see from these shots, Dawn seems to be an old pro posing with these falcons and we must say she, and her latex looks scrumptious in the setting and with her feathered friends attending her. In the interview that accompanies the pictures, Abby Lushei asks Dawn about her history with latex making, and living and teaching in Japan, her views on fetish fashion and how living in Seattle, informs her art.
