“For me, lingerie has always been symbolic of womanhood and femininity. Even if no one sees it, the way beautiful, well-fitting lingerie makes you feel radiates! And, whatever your fashion style is, with lingerie, you can be whoever you want to be underneath it all”.

We are thrilled to announce that Porte-à-Vie is now stocking the fabulously retro-sexy Dita Von Teese collection, designed by the world famous glamour queen and burlesque icon herself. Now in its sixth year, Dita Von Teese lingerie originated in Australia with its first collection launching nationally in 2012. Melbourne is now the headquarters of the Dita Von Teese lingerie brand. “When Helen and Lara (Anderson Brockhurst Enterprises) approached me six years ago we instantly connected. I’d always wanted to do something with lingerie, my pin-up career and my burlesque career all started with my fascination with lingerie and wanting to be photographed in it and seen in it,” says Dita.

“Lingerie can enhance your life in a way that is not like anything else. Even if no one sees it you still know it is there. It is a little bit like having a secret underneath your clothes and you can be whoever you want to be.” 

Standout pieces include the always gorgeous Madame X ensembles, a mastery of modern corsetry that combines drama, with comfort and support. The Coquette collection is pure vintage loveliness, finished with pretty pink satin rosettes and Maestra  is a triumph of sheer panels and stretch lace. And the Vintage Tulle robe looks perfectly provocative over absolutely everything in the range. This is high voltage at home glamour. Why not be the star of your own stage?
