The Atsuko Kudo store on London’s Holloway Road is one of several London latex fashion outlets offering special discounts to personal shoppers during London Fetish Weekend.
Kudo — whose latest media coup is dressing Alesha Dixon for photographs in this weekend’s Fabulous magazine — is offering a ten percent discount off purchases in store on Saturday October 1 and Monday 3. This two-day opportunity is available exclusively to shoppers who quote the special promotional code “Atsuko for Fetishistas” when paying in the store.
Breathless, near Kings Cross, celebrates London Fetish Weekend with a 20 percent LFW discount off all orders placed online or in its shop during LFW, ending Sunday October 2 (online only) at midnight GMT.
House of Harlot has opened its new shop off Brick Lane just in time for London Fetish Weekend. Owner Robin Archer says he’ll be pleased to welcome visitors on Saturday afternoon, and promises lots of tempting items in store at the usual friendly Harlot prices.
Libidex and Radical Rubber are hosting a one-day LFW event at their Bloomsbury HQ on Saturday for personal callers only. The Libidex Sample Sale will include selected LatexExpress items at half price and some slight seconds at an amazing 80 percent off. For anyone needing latex sheeting to make their own creations, Radical Rubber will be opening its doors for the day at the same address — and for early birds, there’ll even be a free glass of bubbly!
And by good fortune, all of these stores are within reasonable distance of Saturday afternoon’s LAM (London Alternative Market) Special at Electrowerkz in Islington. It might take the discipline of a military operation to visit them all on the same afternoon, but it’s not beyond the bounds of possibility.
