A x2 hour online and in person drawing class studying two showgirl looks and acts created by Clea De Velours. A classic burlesque performer requested worldwide. A headliner, a brand ambassador and a muse. Built into a bespoke set design by artist Matthew Lawrence.
Clea De Velours began a career as a model in 2013. Her sense of aesthetics, her artistic references, as well as her solid training in classical dance quickly propelled her to the rank of experienced model.
This is how in 2015 she started working as a burlesque dancer and was voted in 2019 as one of the most influential burlesque figures in the world. Performing for luxury private events in Paris, touring in all the biggest casinos from France, headlining the worlds best burlesque shows in New York, los Angeles, Tokyo. Montreal, London, Rome, Milan, Warshaw, Berlin, Zurich… Clea is in high demand everywhere and she is now one of the main showgirls of the legendary Windmill Soho Theatre in London.
For her, it’s all about art and beauty. In admiration of the beauty of the female body, Clea places it at the heart of her work constantly looking at its sublimation, its consecration as the supreme manifestation of beauty and sensuality. She is particularly inspired by the glamorous icons of the golden age of Hollywood and advocates glamor, sensuality, beauty of costumes, attention to detail and precision. In a word, the woman was elevated to the rank of goddess.
For the creation of her acts, Clea also draws on all the influences that nourish her. Whether they come from painting, the history of fashion from 1800 to the 1960, the cinema from the old cartoons to film noirs. But above all, from women.
Clea explores glamor in all its forms, making her the Parisian showgirl who turns heads all over the world.
The two acts/ costumes that we will be studying in this class will be the ‘Bunny Showgirl’- a playful burlesque act in tribute to the Bunny Girls in the 1960s.
As well as the ‘La Parisienne’ – a breathtaking act with a dream costume reminiscent of the Parisian cabarets.
