The costume, created by British designer Jenny Packham, sparkles with thousands of hand-placed Swarovski crystals and pearls. The shoes are a fetishistic masterpiece created by Christian Louboutin just for Dita’s performance.

The slick patent leather costume, made by Dark Garden Corsetry of San Francisco with accessories by Catherine D’Lish and House of Canney is sure to make a captivating impression!

“It’s always a thrill to create new acts, exploring new ideas that capture the spirit of vintage burlesque that we love, but in ways that haven’t ever been seen before…I can’t wait for fans to see the new costumes, which are blinding sparkly, thanks to my favorite designers and Swarovski. I’m especially fired up to be bringing my show to cities I’ve never performed before!”
