August …continued Part one, Act Three

2013_10_1Its been a very busy few months for Sukki Singapora and our very first style on the scene the ‘Pompadour’ girdle dress, pictured here in early August at the famous ‘Edinburgh Fringe’ Festival, aptly posing in front of the ‘French quarter’ rather fitting for the ‘Pompadour’ we think.

06.08.2013 – The PUNCH & Rudy show… Part One, Act Two….

PUNCH & Rudy are very excited and proud to announce that we have officially acquired our very own PUNCH & Rudy gal, Sukki Singapora, showgirl, celebrity, multinational burlesque artist and producer ‘Ambassador of Burlesque for Singapore’ (Chwennyland).

Crowned one of the most beautiful women in burlesque, Sukki rose to stardom when she performed in the burlesque industry in 2011 with her debut performance at a Las Vegas styled comedy theatre. She is instantly recognisable for her lavish and elaborate performances and costumes, which she intertwines with a unique Bollywood-influence. When asked why did she choose Burlesque? Sukki answered “when I was younger I trained in classical ballet so was always interested in performance art. It was not until I got older and discovered vintage style and fashion that I heard about Burlesque, I’ve been hooked ever since.”

A Global Burlesque Superstar booked for world-class shows and corporate events her previous clients have included Jaguar, UK celebrity Jason Manford, Olympus advertising campaign with award winning photographer Damian McGillicuddy, RBS, Time Out New York, Razor TV, The Independent on Sunday and many, many more.

Next for Sukki was Royal appointment for Tea at Buckingham Palace after she received a nomination for London’s Asian Women of Achievement awards. She received much praise from former UK PM’s leading lady Cherie Blair for her pioneering work as a role model for Asian women’s and men’s freedom of expression within the Arts.

Acknowledging empowerment through femininity, we celebrate that very beauty in our designs so we couldn’t have found a better ‘face’ of Punch & Rudy than Sukki.

We simply cannot wait to see her modelling our ‘Pompadour’ girdle dress for our launch photoshoot in World famous Esquire Magazine in the next few weeks… as the show unfolds we look forward to Act Three! so a very big welcome aboard the Punch & Rudy show miss Sukki Singapora :) x chink chink !!! (virtual cheers)

09.06.2013 – The PUNCH & Rudy show …so far…

So…at last the Punch & Rudy show is in town, after many twists and turns and months and months of hard slog we can finally lift the curtain and reveal our first six styles for A/W13. Just like the quirky shows of a bygone era when Samuel Pepys the naval official and diarist who wrote of the marionette performance he saw over 350 years ago in Londons Covent Garden ‘an Italian puppet play is with the rayles there, which is very pretty, the best I ever saw…’ We hope we can offer the Punch & Rudy gal a grand show of style of her own, as every piece has its own sense of character. We feel we haven’t pushed boundaries we have simply nudged at them, bringing the best of lingerie design, normally hidden back-stage out and onto the centre stage where its beauty belongs; decadence, flirtation, luxury and originality…..A very British show, which has grown and is continuing to blossom as we go forward…. now entering the production phase, our dresses will soon be winging their way onto hangers in boutiques throughout the UK and Europe. With only 50 dresses available per size, stock is strictly limited. To avoid disappointment we are welcoming no-obligation pre-orders, please email us through the website.

Pompadour…inspired by the regal Madame Pompadour herself, French, stylish, lavish. A full statement piece made from silk organza Toile-de-Jouy, edged in sumptuous satin galloon braiding, and gorgeous feminine black daisy guipures make a true statement piece for the champagne gal!

Victorian…with hints of steam punk, fashion forward and evoking the darker and more risqué side for the inner diva in you. Made from delicious silk MacAndrew tartan, and constructed satin quilted bra cups you will definitely stand out in any crowd!

Romantic…created from an antique style corded scalloped lace, this dress offers uber sophisticated sexiness, velvet ribbon detailing adds a quirky twist and originality all the way…so move over ordinary lace frocks and make way for the va-va-voom of lace dresses.

Pulsinella…this style packs power and pretty in one fatal punch!!! Seduction inspired by the girdles of the 40′s and 50′s a real fresh beauty of ingenuity. Pulsinella, you will go to the ball!
