(Miss Exotic World / Reigning Queen 1992 and 1994)
Kicking off the TOP 10 is the sensational seductress (and awe-inspiring seamstress), Catherine D’Lish! Catherine is a master of her craft – instinctively, effortlessly and luxuriously sensual and skillful, with a wicked sense of humour and seemingly endless patience and generosity.
In 2011, Catherine was a vision in pink at the Gypsy Rose Lee Centennial Celebration in Seattle, and returned to Spain to seduce the crowds at the Barcelona Burlesque Festival. She was a beautiful ‘Bird of Paradise’ at BHoF in June and at the Viva Las Vegas showcase, and hung out with us during a trip to London, teaching a group workshop and working individually with performers in intensive one to one sessions.
As always, Catherine created breathtakingly stunning costumes, boas and fans throughout 2011. You can get hold of some of her beautiful pieces at her ebay store, and sometimes she puts unique one-off creations up for sale, so keep an eye out!
