But where does her vintage style come from? Burlesque is a performance that was popular in America during the 1920's and 30's. It is a combination of glamour and fantasy with the controversial striptease too. These are set to lavish backgrounds and sets that only add to the whole effect. Burlesque came at the right time, especially as most of the world was going to war. Pin up models were a form of beauty in a world that was dealing with the atrocities of war.
It is only natural that Dita would have taken on the fashion of the time as part of her performances. But she soon made the vintage look very much her own. And audiences were to find that her costumes were very multifaceted. Along with the cute secretary look they could find Gothic and fetish influences as well the wholesome all-American girl look. Not to mention Rockabilly!
