Model feature : Ila Amour


Ila Amour has a flair for the alternative, with experience in pin up, fetish and fashion which has seen her work take on latex fashion to international publications.


How did you start modelling? Was it something that you always wanted to do, or did it just 'happen'?

I was spotted in Torture Garden (where I am a regular) and I was offered shoots with some amazing photographers and it's developed from there.


I've never been camera shy and I modelled in Russia when I was a teenager, so when I was asked it just seemed so natural to be in front of the camera.


What drew you towards alternative modeling?

The absolute creativity of the designers, photographers and beautiful models. I am naturally a tattoo fan (have you checked out mine?) and lets be honest, inked girls make the hottest models!


Do you have any fellow models or heroines who have inspired you?

When I bumped into Masumi Max at Torture Garden, I was a bit star struck as I adore her work. I also adore the pin-up hotties of yester-year.


What kind of shoots would you like to work on in the future?

I want to push the boundries of creative, Edgy & fetish couture but of course they need to be sexy..

Being published this year, working with few fantastic latex designers such as Lady Lucie and Catfish Latex and working on my own calendar have been pretty awesome, but this is only the beggining.

OMG!!! where do I start... ooh la latex, Anatomic Bomb latex, HMS latex, Atsuko Kudo, Electra Designs Corsetry, Kiss me Deadly, What Katie Did Lingerie and many many more...


What are your goals & aspirations for the future?
