“One of England’s most beautiful and exciting performers, an international starlet in her own right. I first worked with Bijou on a rather rainy day in Milan, we got to know each other during costume changes in a rather tiny dressing room…! The next day we walked through Milan, sharing umbrellas and opinions.” – Millie Dollar

Versatile in her appearances and diverse in her act, Miss Bijou Noir’s list of performances are highly choreographed and exquisitely produced, ranging from 18th century French Revolution nostalgia, right the way through to modern day Electro-Burlesque complete with strobe lighting. Following 15 years of professional dance and with a passion for fashion, Miss Bijou Noir’s appearances are both visually stunning and production perfect, using handmade props and one-off pieces.
