Accompanied by Monsieur du Vin and surrounded by sparkly displays of Swarovski, the drinks flowed and chocolate savoured while demonstrations were given on customising lingerie with crystals and glamming up make up with fetching jewels.
With crystal-adorned eyes and slicked back hair, the models kicked off the catwalk show in What Katie Did. There were great new takes on What Katie Did’s distinctive vintage styles such as the vibrant red satin and sheer peach contrast bullet bra, girdle and briefs. There were also fetish-inspired garments such as a black corselette with red overstitching - a great new spin on the Bettie Page look.
Next came the eye-poppingly sexy Dirty Pretty Things with their updated spin on retro lingerie with sexy babydoll gowns in neon pink and yellow. For those not brave enough for an assault of brashness, there were white bras and briefs with neon straps and stitching.
Kiss Me Deadly, every vamp’s favourite brand, delivered the goods which included one of my personal favourites - a bralet and knickers in, naturally, leopard! Also from Kiss Me Deadly were new versions of all-time favourites such as a DeVille bra and matching panty girdle in blue.

Getting the crowds up for a holiday in the sun were luxury sarong specialist Poshtotti and vibrant swimwear brand Paolita. Poshtotti’s sarongs are a big step away from the usual sarongs with their luxurious fabrics and incredible versatility - you don’t need to wear anything else in the hot months (the next best thing to going au naturel!).
Monsieur and I had a fabulous evening at Crystallized and the length of my lingerie wishlist has trebled - you all know my birthday’s round the corner, right? It looks like Spring/Summer 2013 is going to be bright, bold and sassy!
