The mysterious merwoman and the bearded beauty come to Shoreditch

Posted at 4:00 pm, November 12, 2011 in Arts & Entertainment

Roll up, roll up for the Sensational Sideshow Starlets at Luna & Curious. Marvel at the mysterious merwoman of the deep. Be amazed by the beguiling bearded beauty. Be seduced by the snake charmstress of Persia. Swoon over Shoreditch’s sinister spider woman and discover just why Liberty named their creator a ‘Best of British Designer’.

Textile coutourist Amanda Fatherazi makes her solo debut with an enviable ensemble of so-called ‘boudoir dolls’, each finely crafted to embody a tiny temptress of an early 20th century travelling circus. The troupe are on display until November 20 at one of our favourite East End curiosity shops, fittingly housed in listed Victoriana splendour. A freak show to get your freak on to, frankly.
