THE Velvet Underground 15th Anniversary - Invitation Contest

Ahem, ladies! We know you loved “Late Night Lover” by Yu and all the goodies we’ve pampered you with this month. You must have owned Zouk and Velvet Underground’s dance-floor with your sexy moves! But, you know, Trixilini is always looking for excuses to spoil you! So here’s another chance for you to doll up and boogie in the party dresses you bought:

The Velvet Peep Show

The Velvet Underground 15th Anniversary

Followed by Karizma (US) Saturday 15 August 2009 at Velvet Underground, 10pm onwards

For her 15th enthralling year, Velvet Underground invites you to take a Peep into her masquerade world at the "The Velvet Peep Show".

Beguiling, mysterious, resplendent and rousing, The Velvet Peep Show will take you to a realm of thrills and grandeur. Crimson red and black chandeliers hung low in a (transformed) lair with Burlesque dancers entwine in a slow seductive gyrate. Luxuriate in the opulent atmosphere; take a glance into the kaleidoscope of life and who knows what you might uncover.

Veil yourself well as the best masked guest will be handsomely rewarded.

Adding a mist of bliss to the night is Baltimorean, Karizma, famed for his intimate soul funk house sound and his works with the Basement Boys and Black Vinyl Records.

Join the guild and embrace the Velvet Peep Show.

Trixilini welcomes pequitobun - In store from 29 July 2009 onwards

About pequitobun

pequitobun marries the old-fashioned loveliness and detail of vintage jewelry with modern romantic design. Using the highest quality materials, including karat gold, 14K goldfill and gemstones, and carefully chosen vintage pieces, each piece is individually handmade by the designer. Combining the ethos of recycling with the sustainability of quality durable materials, wrapped in thoughtful, detailed and always distinctive design, pequitobun seeks to create jewelry for every occasion, from a fun night out with the girls, to everyday signature pieces, to the grandest events where only the best will do.

pequitobun designer Sherry was always a bookworm with a love for fashion and design. When she moved to graduate school at the age of 22, she developed a love for all things vintage - furnishings, clothing, and jewelry: quaint charms, lockets and brooches. To break the punishing cycles of work, Sherry started making jewelry with vintage things: little projects of art she could delight in. She made an amazing discovery: people really liked her unique designs and point of view! She named her line of jewelry after her cuddly lop-eared bunny, and pequitobun quickly developed a devoted following. Sherry finally got her PhD in 2009, and just moved from Boston, MA to sunny Singapore with her cuddly bunny and husband. She is a serious scientist, most of the time.

pequitobun has also been featured on Gossip Girl,,, Brides Magazine, Life and Style Weekly, The Boston Globe, The Improper Bostonian and, amongst other media outlets. We have also been seen on Shantel Van Santen of the upcoming movies Final Destination 4 and You and I.
