Kembra Pfahler leading lady of shock rock band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black and East Village underground art icon has been designing costumes and props for herself and VHoKB since the 70s. Known for having sewn her vagina shut and now for sewing dresses. Her lastest line for the public or at least a portion of the public is called "Clever Disguises for People Who are Dark on the Inside and Light on the Outside" and premiered at NYC's fashion week recently. The line took inspiration from factory made children's Halloween costumes (naturally) - "A sort of Satanic Chanel rock look." The line is available at Lost Shoe Productions - 168 Ludlow Street, NYC
Apparently VHoKB will be performing at Deitch Projects (18 Wooster Street) sometime in Oct. although I can't seem to find a listing, the VHoKB website is no longer, and no one on the web seems to have anything to say about any of this - a sad day indeed for someone who gave us Antinaturalism, and Availablism
