Marlies Dekkers sure knows how to throw a lively party — even if the crowd includes a few undead guests.
The Dutch lingerie designer hosted her first Victorian Vampire Night in Amsterdam on Saturday, a combination runway show and costume party to unveil her Fall 2010 lingerie collection.
The evening featured models trolling glumly along the catwalk with hands and lips dripping blood, carrying crucifixes and wearing thorn garlands in their hair.
The unique presentation was Dekkers’ way of drawing attention to the Victorian themes in her dramatic fall line. She’ll host a second Victorian Vampire Night next weekend.
After the show, it was reported the partygoers retired to MD’s place to catch the True Blood season-ender — and mock its many subtle inaccuracies.
