London gets a new adult-orientated show in Spring 2008 when Passion comes to Earls Court on May 24-25.
Launched by the organisers of the Xpo Barbican, it is described as ‘an exciting new show for adventurous adults to explore, share and indulge their passions for everything erotic’ — from exotic lingerie, beautiful accessories and gorgeous clothes for him and for her, to the very latest sex toys, books, art, photography and DVDs.
Though not a dedicated fetish show, the event — taking place at the Brompton Hall, Earls Court — has already attracted exhibitors from the UK’s fetish and alternative scenes, many of whom exhibited at the 2007 Xpo.
Companies signed up so far include Angels Carrying Savage Weapons (corsetry and clothing), Belle Epoque (corsetry), Eden Coeur (corsetry), Hanky Panky Hampers (luxury adult product hampers), The Hourglass (makeover photography), Jed Phoenix (clothing), John Tisbury (fetish photography), Libby Rose (clothing and accessories), Love Shack (corsetry, clothes and toys), Overt Clothing (latex fashion) and Slightly Scarlet (hats and accessories).
Alongside exhibitors, Passion will offer a mixture of entertainment including fashion shows, a burlesque theatre with continuous performances throughout the show, Café Club with live DJs, DVD Village and walkabout carnival entertainers.
In addition to the entertainment at the show itself, the Passion team promises a whole weekend of related events including a grand ball and a fetish party.
