Style Icon Bettie Page Inspires the Launch of Bettie Page Clothing in 2007 by Commercial Financier Jan Glaser and Russian-Born Fashion Designer Tatyana Khomyakova

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - December 3, 2010) -  Famous in the 1950s for her fetish modeling and pin-up photos, the iconic "Queen of Pinups" -- one of Playboy Magazine's first "Playmates of the Month" -- Bettie Page continues to captivate millions of men and women around the world with her youthful-sexy image, voluptuous figure, and signature jet black hair with short-cut bangs and blue eyes. Upon Page's passing, MTV acknowledged that without her generation-hopping influence, a slew of contemporary stars would have different looks -- from Katy Perry to Madonna, Rihanna, The Pussycat Dolls and Dita Von Teese

Page persona inspired the creation of Bettie Page Clothing (www.bettiepageclothing.com). Launched by commercial financer Jan Glaser and brilliant Russian-born fashion designer Tatyana Khomyakova, Bettie Page Clothing boutiques have given those who live in or near Las Vegas, Hollywood, San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district and San Diego's Gaslamp district the advantage to re-create Page's look. 

Opening their first store in 2007 at the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood on the Strip in Vegas, Glaser and Khomyakova tapped into this widespread divine madness and created fashion phenomenon that seems boundless. Beyond the current locations, there are future plans to expand their lines on Newbury Street in Boston, Manhattan, the Twin Cities' Mall of America and Miami's South Beach.

Beyond the U.S. retail locations, the Bettie Page Clothing brand has gone global, with boutiques in 57 countries around the world selling its products. According to Glaser, the line is exceptionally popular in Australia, Europe and Canada.

Celebrities have flocked to wear Khomyakova's designs including Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, Pink, Holly Madison, Tempest Storm, Denise Richards, Amy Jones, Jenny Tiffen ("Fashions on the Field" - Canberra Races), "So You Think You Can Dance" Top 4 finalist Lauren Froderman and Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester, along with rising Rockabilly princess Karling and punk rocker Kimberly Freeman of One-Eyed Doll. Realizing the popular appeal of her Bettie Page dresses, Khomyakova is now expanding her portfolio to include a distinctive "Elvgren" line -- based on the images of the classic pin-up artist of the 1950s, a special "Tatyana" collection and collaboration collection "Beach Bash" with Art Khomyakov for a new line of beachwear this spring.
