FASHION IS NOT SOMETHING THAT EXISTS IN DRESSES ONLY.
FASHION IS IN THE SKY, IN THE STREET, FASHION HAS TO DO WITH IDEAS, THE WAY WE LIVE, WHAT IS HAPPENING.
Our amazing Fall issue is all about Fashion & Fetish. Drag Race Winner and vintage fetish queen Violet Chachki is featured in an exclusive photo spread shot by Dusti Cunningham and she dishes about what it’s like to “Steal the Show.” She’s young, she’s hot, and she’s sensational…Her look is distinctly vintage fetish (straight out of a John Willie illustration) but her drive to succeed is what really captivated us; in just a few short years Violet has perfected the art of drag while simultaneously learning burlesque and aerial silks in order to become an artist who takes performing to a whole new level. And more than that, she has become a style icon for a new generation by combining vintage glamour, haute couture, and unparalleled beauty heavily influenced by the BDSM scene. In many ways Violet also embodies the origins of Transformation magazine which started out by celebrating crossdressers, transvestites, and Tgirls—especially those who enjoyed the fetish aspect of the lifestyle.
Fashion is something that means many different things to many different people—for some it is like a religion, for others a language, and for a few it is an escape, but no matter what it is for you fashion is all around us and allows us to express as much, or as little, of ourselves as we wish. In this issue we wanted to explore a little bit of the fetish of fashion, from the allure of fine fabrics to the addiction of stiletto heels, and how what we wear can be a form of escapism and fantasy.
Cici Fetish Doll hits the the L.A. Fetish Ball with latex fantasy girl Nicci Tristan and friends in jaw-dropping rubber couture. Caramel Black interviews TS Mayumi, an up and cumming adult model with a passion for cosplay and gaming.

Plus we have industry news, our regular columnists, reader letters and event listings. We are “On The Scene” at DragCon, hold a Transformation 94 release party with Aubrey Kate, teach a little bit of Glamour 101 and so much more!
So head to your closet, put on your most fabulous outfit—the one that makes you feel drop dead gorgeous—slip into your favorite heels, dab on an enticing scent, gloss up those lips, and feel what clothing inspires in you!
