NEW YORK, NY — Julie Simone is a dominatrix, award-winning fetish director, and artist. Now she’s becoming a designer with a limited edition line of tees that feature 10 of her own designs, which blend her fetish photos and paintings.
The models in this initial run include Gia Paloma, Nikki Sebastian, Bella Vendetta, Sinnamon Love and Allanah Rhodes. The two tees of Vendetta are the only images available for purchase with her in a submissive role.
To raise money to produce her tees, Simone has started a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo that features multiple levels of giving and offers donors rewards including a simple thank you, stickers, t-shirts, boxed sets of DVDs, and even custom videos. With about a month left, those wanting to contribute should get on board today. Log on to her page and view the special video she’s created to further explain the project at IndieGoGo.
“I’m only making 100 copies of each shirt; it's unique, collectible wearable art,” says Simone. “Unlike DVDs, you can’t download a t-shirt. If you want it, you have to buy it and I like the idea of creating something like that. I have a ton of more ideas for the line. This is only the beginning.”
