Ayten Gasson to collaborate with author Tamara Dumas to showcase new collection

Ayten Roberts

We are very pleased to announce we will be showcasing our new collection during a live performance at the launch of Tamara Dumas’ new book While You Were Awake on Wednesday 11th March 2015.

The performance will be held in London’s magnificent NinetyEight Bar and will feature a stunning selection of key pieces from our summer collection. Gold, plum, black and peach silk lingerie, trimmed with vintage Nottingham lace will be matched with vintage Liberty print silk bed jackets and elegant English lace robes. Silk eye masks and padded cuffs will provide the striking finishing touches to each outfit.  


In While You Were Awake we are introduced to a girl, but not told her name. She is having dinner with a man whose name she has forgotten. It is a pattern of her life, established in her teens. Men come and go and are now nothing but a distant memory. Names and places forgotten.

The man’s plans for the evening involve a trip to an elite sex club where there are very few rules, except for the obligatory wearing of masks. He is following the wishes of someone else and he is only the means by which the girl is passed to somebody else.

Who is using who and who is trying to control them both?

This novel by Tamara Dumas is an intriguing story with dark undertones and the reader is kept guessing right to the end.


Tamara Dumas was born and raised in a small town in Estonia. Soon after completing her university studies, she moved to London in pursuit of a career in life coaching.

While You Were Awake is her first book. She is currently working on her second book, TH!NK, which will be the first instalment in a planned series.
