Vicious Venus is the collaboration and joint vision of Australian designers Joy Liakis and Natalie Fowler. Sharing a love of traditionally tailored, couture clothing, they formed a partnership in 1994 and established Vicious Venus.
Vicious Venus is passionate about empowering women of all ages to enhance their own natural beauty with the best of vintage styling. Specialising in sophisticated classic clothing we are committed to creating original vintage inspired contemporary dresses, corsets and separates that celebrate the female form. Dedicated to reviving the golden age of Hollywood glamour when curves were not a sin, our designs are always flattering, feminine and honour a woman’s independent spirit which never goes out of style!
Our in house design and passion for custom corsetry is renowned and has been paraded by women world wide from Burlesque to Bridal. Our couture bridal service is unparalleled in Melbourne with its quality craftsmanship and attention to detail and styling. Each individual garment is laboriously hand-made, giving careful attention to even the smallest of details.
Our love of all things vintage plays a key role in our design process.
