Perfect For All Vintage Darlings

All things Vintage are huge and here at Bijoux Burlesque we know why ladies are choosing vintage for their Vintage Inspired Hen Party

The 1930s/40s/50s were a time of sophistication, of style, of elegance where women were allowed to look and feel like real women. The woman's figure was enhanced with stylish figure hugging wiggle dresses but the ladies assets underneath the dresses were still well hidden from every Tom, Dick and Harry, unlike today where the ladies assets are well and truly on shown to Tom, Dick and Harry.

For the ladies here at Bijoux Burlesque our vintage style icons are Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, both ladies oozed sex appeal in a classy and elegant fashion. The clothes they wore were understated yet stylish, simple yet sensual. Both ladies had very different body shapes however they both knew how to dress to enhance their their shape and convey their sex appeal and in the words of Audrey Hepburn herself:
“There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal, picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.” 
Their sex appeal came from their confidence, ladies want to be them and the gentlemen wanted to be with them.

So in our modern world where it seems that the womanly figure is seen as too curvy and undesirable Bijoux Burlesque understand why so many modern ladies are harking back to a time where curves were desired on their vintage style hen parties. Where glamour and elegance were an everyday occurrence not just for a special occasion and where a size 16 was seen as the ideal. Where women were real women.

Bijoux Burlesque have been lucky enough to provide Vintage Style Hen Party Photoshoot to fabulous hens during 2013. Our Vintage Photo Shoot Hen Parties have taken place throughout the whole of the UK from London to Edinburgh, the ladies have shined on camera and reminded us of our style icons, but don't take our word for it, have a look below.


Burlesque Belles

Down in London town our Burlesque Belles looked amazing and thoroughly enjoyed their Burlesque Hen Party, the hen is a lucky lady jetting off to South Africa for a wonderful wedding day surrounded by her family and friends.


Bollywood Babes

Our wonderful clients have had a fab time this weekend, it may have been cold outside but our Scotish Bollywood Babes looked hot on their Bollywood Hen Party and nailed the dance routines!

History of the Hen Party

Although the Stag Party tradition goes back for centuries the hen night is a much more recent invention. Starting during the sexual revolution of the sixities the hen night mainly consisted of a meal with close friends and it was not until the 80s/90s that the tradition really became popular and oh how times have changed!

Now the tradition of the Hen Party and Stag Party is thankfully equal and each gender places the same amount of preparation and focus on their last night - weekend - week - two weeks of freedom.

The modern Hen Party ranges from sophisticated cocktail making to the saucy burlesque hen party. The style of hen party depends on the style of the hen, she can choose from vintage photo shoots to hula hoop hen parties, stay in the UK or head over to Europe for a sun filled weekend, the decision is hers!

So Scandalous!!

Today,down at Bijoux HQ,we are trying to perfect our Charleston moves.We are always breaking out into a song or dance!


Our Charleston hen parties are proving a firm favourite all across the UK.The cheeky moves and glamorous style is definitely a hit when hosting a party!

Did you know that The Charleston is a dance named for the city of Charleston, South Carolina. It became well known in the United States in 1923,when a tune called "The Charleston", originated in a Broadway  show. Then it became one of the most popular hits of the decade!

The Charleston dance was particularly favoured by the Flappers, rebellious young women of the 1920′s known for wearing short dresses, bobbing hair and listening to Jazz music – all considered scandalous! During this time,It was banned from many dance halls because it was too  exuberant! 

In our Charleston Hen Parties, we encourage exuberance and fringed dresses,it's all about having lots and lots of fun! As the photo shows,there's a little bit of flapper in all of us.After all,we all know,us 'girls just wanna have fun!'
