Open Chest Power Series Interview With Dita Von Teese

Jan 16, 2017

    Dita Von Teese is one of my idols.

    Growing up amidst the female role models of the 1940s to the 1990s (those who influenced my understanding of what women were meant to be), both from the West, where I have lived all of my life, to the East, where my heritage resides, the most fascinating of them all where the glamazons — those who had the guts to be as flamboyant as was possible. I didn’t realize until much later on in life that these women identified with being glamorous, rather than it being something they did for the sake of their profession or to attract a man. On the contrary, they became known because of their identification of self.

Dita Von Teese is one such woman. She has inspired an entire generation by bringing the art of burlesque from the traditional Victorian style to the neo-burlesque genre.

    This is the kind of woman I admire, and this is why she is my newest Open Chest Power Series interview. If you’ve ever wanted to know how passion and lifestyle has built a world class brand…
