Hi, I’m Velvet DeCollete.
I’m a designer, pinup model, burlesquer, baker and morbidly inclined crafter born and bred in New Zealand.
The Beckoning is my blog for pin up fashion, art, DIY, and anything else that catches my eye. You’ll also find behind the scenes treats from the Beckon Couture website, photoshoots and shows. Come on in and be inspired!
The man in the photo is my husband Duke Debonair. He’s the engineer behind a lot of my costume hardware, my biggest cheerleader, King of the NZ Burlesque Festival 2015 and ever patient with my growing hoard of fabric. We live and work in a haunted historic pub with our staffy x furbaby and a large collection of skulls.
You can contact me in so many ways!
Stop by for a chat on Facebook or Twitter, or visit the Beckon Couture website to spoil yourself with something pretty!
