It's been a helluva busy week here at HC headquarters and here's a neat lil' roundup of all our current projects on the boil:

1. Joy and I will be hitting the VIVA LAS VEGAS rockabilly festival in April for a weekend of trashy madness! We will not be selling our wares BUT we will indeed be spreading the word about HC and drinking hooch out of cowboy boots! So Money! You will find us handing out postcards throughout the weekend and/or lounging by the pool at the Flamingo. See ya at the Tiki pool party!

2. Work is going strong on Kylie Lyons' faaabulous bridesmaid frocks and the top secret designs will be unleashed on the blog only after the wedding is over. Ooh! Aah!

3. Continuing the oh-so-delightful relationship with the Adelaide Roller Derby League (ARDL) Hot Couture is proud to announce that we are the official designer of the new uniforms for the MILE DIE CLUB and SALTY DOLLS!

And one little note that is of interest to all you sportsfans....

4. Joy is very happy to make any Hot Couture style in the fabric of your choice, so long as you provide her with fabric! This means that AMAZING atomic fabric you bought at Catwalk a few years ago (that's probably sitting at the bottom of your wardrobe) can now live again as a Lolita Tight or Bardot Evening! Customers, send us an email at outlining the nature of the fabric (cotton, viscose, lycra etc.) and Joy will do her best to turn your idea into a fully fledged Hot Couture frock!

OK hotties, here's a sneaky preview of 2 new Hot Couture styles to hit the website in early March....voila the fabulous Ginger Danger modelling the oh-so-appropriately monikered GINGER TIGHT wiggle dress:

Alternate angle of 'Ginger Tight' in all its desat glory - because we CAN!

Voila the second ladybeast style to hit in a month....may we present, the HELLO SAILOR!

Super dooper B&W Ginger in the 'Hello Sailor'!

Voila a bust/waist/skirt detail of 'Hello Sailor' - check out that oh-so-flattering tie for gals with big and lil' boobies alike!

We know you ladies are going to lurve these totally sexy, albeit super flattering new styles as much as we do! The 'Ginger Tight' and 'Hello Sailor' are P.O.A au moment but we'll get back to you with more deets in March! Stay tuned!

Happy Little Campers

Joyleen sure does run a tight ship here at HC HQ...barely a day goes by in the studio sans a dummy spit and 10 lashings to the lower deck should we misbehave with Bob. Greta and I cowl in fear at Joy's cruel managerial tyranny - oh the horror, lunch in beautiful Stirling again - and to prove just how horrible it is making pretty frocks in a pretty place, here are the photos to prove it!

Greta is wearing 'Sandra Dee Tight', Stavroula is wearing 'Ginger Tight' and Joy is wearing rosy horns!

Greta and yours truly hating every minute of fabulosity.

Observe: a textbook case of a proletarian in revolt!

Don't get caught with egg on your face *don't...get...caught*


Working with Joy RULES. And that's the truth Ruth!

Back to work!

Well hi there Hot Couture dollybirds! Christmas is over, the champagne fizz of New Years has settled and it's back to work here at HC HQ! Joy has been cookin' up some brand spanking new styles to be released online early March and the fabulous Gypsy Taylor has worked the wacom to design this faaaaaabulous new postcard / Deadbeat ad!

Isn't our HC mascot a stone cold fox?


Check out for a squiz at more of Gypsy's work.
