Sculptor and performance artist, Sasha Frolova has a passion for latex and biomorphic balloon garments. She incorporates innocence and fun into the often fetishized latex. Sasha has been featured in Vogue Russia and has appeared in Moscow Museum of Modern Art’s “latex aerobics” live stream. She led an aerobics class to the tune of classical music in stiletto heels and a latex catsuit. Sasha is definitely putting alternative garments on the map—although that map may not be a map of Earth.
