Riwaa Nerona is for many the epitome of feminine beauty and refinement. Since 2007, she began publishing her portrait photographs under this pseudonym. At the same time, she also started sewing women's, bridal, and even men's corsets and creating clothing accessories. The chapter inspired by the story of Riwaa Nerone is also part of the book Bohemian Taboo Stories.
She is also a designer of garter belts and lingerie. She actively wears corsets in her everyday life. It is much more than just a job and a hobby for her, it is a lifestyle. She teaches others to wear corsets and is interested in everything about its history and wearing.
Riwaa herself is also a model and has been chosen for her photographs by photographers such as Luna Torr, Lucie Kout and Sachtikus. She also played a role in the student horror film Psychopompos.
Her corsets are worn by leading Czech burlesque dancers, and she actively participates in fashion shows such as L'Amour Night, where every year since 2015 you can see the work of the most famous Czech designers of the fashion scene in vintage, glamour style.
Riwaa also hosts her own events and shows with a slightly decadent twist, in the past I have co-hosted with Therese Rosie La Femme, now an annual Valentine's Day event.
You can find Riwaa's studio in Žižkov, Husitská Street in Prague.
