Good taste: Caroline Axell of Pom Pom Parlour-- who has previous served as a stylist for a TV4’makeover feature-- was wearing a Dior bracelet from 1969, an H&M dress and Sonia Rykiel designer shoes.

Ruby Delicious and “stage kitten” Josephine Shake ‘n’ Burn relax on a comfy couch. “She picks up my clothes after I perform,” Ruby said, explaining the role of her sidekick.

Quite a dish: Lola van Dyke, a big star on the Swedish burlesque scene and the producer of the three-day festival taking place at Berns , strikes a pose for Scandinavian Fashion. On the troupe’s website, she calls herself “The Sauciest Strudel in Showbiz.”

Well-groomed: We liked the look of Hans Rosenberg, a translator, who kept out of the cold at the nearby Le Boheme restaurant before the start of the show. All photos: André Anwar.

A sneak preview of this weekend’s Stockholm Burlesque Festival took place on Wednesday evening at the Pom Pom Parlour shop on the third floor of the PUB department store. The theme boutique, with its assortment of 50’s-style fashions, burlesque accessories and sex toys was the perfect setting for a teaser mini-show by two of the tassel twirling performers in the Knicker Sisters, which are arranging the festival. The performers made their entrance and exit in the department store elevators.

The Pom Pom boutique is currently hosting an exhibit of photos by four photographers who have followed the Knicker Kittens over the years: Ewa Hilden Smith, Martin von Krogh, Olle Lundin, and Jimmy Croona. All photos above: André Anwar.
