Whenever I get bored with a piece of clothing I tend to take a pair of scissors and I cut it up. When I was wearing this black negligee in a recent shoot I realised that I had had it for a long time and it had already been seen in other photo-sets. I decided it needed to be revamped.
I explained to the photographer that the negligee needed re-working and I mentioned my interest in the clothes ripping fetish and how I wanted to explore it in the shots he was about to take. He cut some holes in the fabric that enabled me to push my fingers into them so I could rip and tear my own larger holes. I felt like the ultimate rebel as I posed.
Later in the set, the black negligee was reduced to unrecognisable rags hanging from my body which coolly complemented the ripped tights that I was almost wearing.
