I've known Peter Thomas, the former manager and then owner of punk rock mecca clothing store Retail Slut for years. I'm not positive when I first met Yolanda, but I think it went like this. Peter went to London on a buying trip for Retail Slut. Prior to this, he had been the man that every girl wanted but no one could be enough for. He came back from London and was like check out this hot redhead Yolanda and that was that.
Yolanda has designed most of the original fashions in Retail Slut’s signature line. Her education is in clothing design, but she is probably better known for her modeling. It is almost a rule that any gallery show in Los Angeles is required to showcase at least one art print of Yolanda. She has been in more coffee table books and magazines than I can count, although I believe Forrest Black and I shot her only glossy magazine cover when we did what was practically the all Yolanda issue of Gothic Beauty. Isabella Costumiere created a custom outfit to my specs for Yolanda to wear on the cover and then we also did a feature on Yolanda for the inside. We’ve also shot her for SWAG, Marquis, Tattoo Savage, Magnet, Leg World, and Taboo. Probably some other things too.
Yolanda is striking, creative, and super easy to work with. We've had her put her feet in pie and stopped traffic on Melrose by having her get in the window nude. She is always up for trying some crazy fun new thing.
We brought her to Vegas to be one of our BondCon booth babes and she was such a blast. Sabrina taught her how to get foot massages from submissives and I got scolded at the Coyote Ugly nightclub. Yolanda and Mistress Isabella Sinclaire got up on the bar at CU in the New York New York Casino and started dancing and Yolanda was wearing this basically see-through custom tights and we were goofing around and I was stuffing tips in them. The bouncers couldn’t have been all that pissed off though because they gave us all free drinks afterwards. Something rasberry-flavored and very alcoholic.
