$25 gets you admission, drink ticket, and Hors D'oeuvres

One year ago we opened our doors to you and most importantly you came. You came dressed to the 9s and became part of our monthly event. You saw and experienced the fantastic roster of award winning and incredible preformers, bands, artists and fashion designers. Without you we would be nothing and thus we now celebrate our one year anniversary by tossing the biggest and best party ever just for you, our beloved guests.

As always, the whole evening has been formulated like a fine elixir to amuse, tantalize and amaze you.

We are honored to have the exclusive release event for G. D. Falksen's debut novel “Blood In The Skies”, a fast-paced steampunk adventure story set in a world of excitement, danger, and aviation. Join Wing Commander Steele of the Commonwealth Air Force as she battles mysterious assassins and bloodthirsty pirates bent on delivering a doomsday weapon into the hands of a madman. Coming this summer from Wildside Press. Penned by G. D. Falksen fantastic illustrations by Jeni Hellum. We are lucky to offer you not only the first glance at this great book but also be privileged to hear a reading by the author and illustartor done in a classic radioland performance style, a treat not to be missed.

With such incredible music acts as "This Way to the Egress!", whose debut album is out soon; and the immortal and world famous Voltaire, who will serenade you of the wonders of being Evil while masterfuly playing his guitar. You know these performers' talent and music, and now is your chance to see them at Dorian's Parlor.

We are honored and very fortunate to have fashion designer Anthony Canney, head of the design house The House of Canney, where the trends from history never looked so fresh. Specializing in bespoke, historically inspired fashion and corsetry, Canney has traveled half way across the contury to show you his latest designs on gorgeous models in our fashion show.

And that's not all. We have dozens of one of a kind venders eager to sell you their great wears, preformers yet to be named (we must keep some surprises), glorious food and drink, and one of the best DJs out there, DJ Dave Ghoul, spinning song after song to keep you dancing the night away. There will be a vintage style photo booths to capture your evening with our talented photographers. We will have a mountain of door prizes and give aways from such places as Wildside Press, Retroscope Fashions, Steampunk Tales and many more all just for you. Prehaps a special bit of cake to celebrate a year of letting us entertain you. So come to our birthday party dressed your best and ejoy the spectacle we have prepared just for you. You will will not want to miss the event that surely will be totted as one of the parties of the year.

Come to the event of the yearCollapse )

You are Invited to Dorian's Parlor
Steampunk, Neo-victorian, Dorian's Parlor

 Dorian’s Parlor is a celebration of the Steampunk aesthetic, which blends history with the future and adds a healthy dose of what might have been. Patrons dance, sip cocktails, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and partake in a one-of-its-kind lineup of bands, DJs, dancers and high fashion from the foremost neo-vintage designers. Dorian’s Parlor is fast becoming a household name for those who love Steampunk and all things neo-vintage.

The June lineup features the return of the delightful Psyche Corporation, which is “one part cyberpunk trip-hop darkwave music, one part robotics exhibition, one part dreamscape art.” The much-loved White Elephant Burlesque Society returns as well with a gypsy cabaret full of vaudevillian burlesque Dorian’s Parlor also features New-England based band Jaggery, an art-rock collective which weaves instruments such as harp, viola, piano, contrabass, and drum kit with other-worldly vocal stylings. For something a little out of the ordinary, check out Walter Sickert and The ARmy of BRoken TOys, described as “a Dada-esque circus carnival run amuck.” This month’s fashion show will feature the delightful designs of Jeximé, and Tsirkus Fotografika’s RA Friedman will present the project’s most memorable and intriguing portraits and discuss his unorthodox photo methodology.

The next 21+ event will be held Saturday, June 4th, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., in the Ormandy Ballroom of the DoubleTree Hotel, on the Avenue of the Arts in downtown Philadelphia. Admission is $25, and includes a drink ticket and hors d’oeuvres.

Would you like to walk on the catwalk?
blood plus
This Saturday at http://www.doriansparlor.com

Unfortunately, we just had several models who were set to go for this event suddenly run into scheduling conflicts and other difficulties that will prevent them from being available. We now have 12 model openings for this Saturday's show. If you are interested, you will get to walk in thousands of dollars worth of clothing, you will get pro photos, food and free entry into the event for that night, and a great deal of fun.

The clothes are all NYC Fashion Week samples so they are cut very small to meet the fashion industry standard. Note the sizes and if you fit and are interested, email the designer at alexlondondesign@gmail.com


Info about what is needed and about the designer.

Designer Alex London ( http://www.alexlondondesign.com) who recently debuted New York Fashion Week, will be showing, by special request, their Spring/Summer 2011 collection "Chassant Le Lapin Blanc" a fantastical collection that incorporates elements from the beloved novel "Alice in Wonderland" at Dorian's Parlor on March 12, 2011 in Philadelphia, PA

"This collection comes from my pursuit of a childhood stuffed bunny that seemed to have gotten away. I would make dresses for the bunny and saw it as a real person. I chased my childhood and an impossible beauty that always seems to evade my grasp." - Alex London

We do not want merely to see beauty, though, God knows, even that is bounty enough. We want something else which can hardly be put into words--to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. C.S. Lewis

We have 8 models right now and are looking for 12 more. Models need to be agency standard size (5'9-6'3, size 0-4.) Longer hair lengths desired. Hair and makeup will be provided, models need to bring a standard pair of their tallest black heels and nude underwear.

If interested, please email alexlondondesign@gmail.com with your details and a full length photo, as well as a link to your portfolio (modelmayhem is fine)

The event is March 12
Philadelphia Doubletree Hotel
237 Broad Street

Call Time 5pm
