Northbound Leather’s 18th annual Fetish Fashion Show & Party, entitled SCANDAL, will unveil nine original mini collections for men and women, designed by its Creative Director Cheryl Kocot, on Saturday, October 25, 2014, at Sound Academy, 11 Polson Street.

“SCANDAL will take a humorous, tongue in cheek, look at a variety of the types of scandals we’ve performed, participated or have witnessed throughout history, and the fashionable clothes we wear to do so,” said Paul Ciantar, Producer of this year’s fashion show.

Cheryl Kocot is designing 54 original period inspired designs of mix and match and wearable separates, including accessories. Each piece is custom fitted for each model but can be recreated to fit any size. “For my third fetish fashion show, I am mixing textiles, colour blocking and playing with textures to develop an elegant collection, reflecting fetish meets ready to wear and high fashion, taking Northbound and into a new direction, said Kocot.”
