Queen of Burlesque, Immodesty Blaize, has been performing internationally for close to 20 years and is widely credited as the figurehead of the burlesque renaissance in Europe. No stranger to press commentary as a non-size zero performer, Immodesty has always flown the flag for curves, and is an ambassador for All Walks for the Catwalk; a non-profit organisation headed by Caryn Franklin, helping to challenge the fashion industry’s dependence on unachievable and unhealthy body standards.
A knee injury 4 years ago led to Immodesty studying food psychology and nutrition under various experts. The Modern Goddess is the culmination of her work off-stage, away from the feathers and glamour. Her aim is to reach out to other women who are experiencing challenges with their own perceptions of body, food, beauty and what the world expects of us.
