Fashion Tips for Pole Dancers.
Wink Designs was set up in March 2012, by fashion designer Sarah McClymont who found a gap in the market after struggling to find suitable clothing for her own pole performances and training.
Wink prides itself in offering Dancewear and Costumes for Pole Dancing, Burlesque and Aerial Arts. The brand offers glamour, and unique design that will appeal to every dancer. 'Wink' also offers a custom 'made to measure' design service for dance shows, competitions, performances and photo shoots that fit within your theme or dance style. This also includes custom dancewear and a logo design service if you would like to sell your own dancewear with your logo. All clothing is made in the UK using the highest quality dancewear fabrics.
Wink has designed costumes for a variety of UK and International pole stars.
They have recently designed and manufactured all the costumes for the latest Millie Robson ‘Magic at Midnight’ calendar. All profits will go directly to Women & Children First UK, supporting their vital work in saving the lives of mothers and babies in some of the poorest communities in the world.
Sarah’s advice to dancers looking for costumes for competitions or training…
‘’Firstly, it has to work well on the pole. That is the most important thing for pole dancers because they need the support and the reassurance that they are able to do their moves or routine comfortably and confidently. Performance costumes need to be unique and different in order to help the dancer stand out and capture the audience’s attention. It definitely needs the wow factor!’’
