Burlesque performer Dita Von Teese has launched her racy lingerie line in New Zealand, selling exclusively through Farmers department store.

The Von Follies range features 1950s-inspired pieces based on Von Teese's personal collection of vintage lingerie.

A YouTube video posted last week titled "A message from Dita Von Teese to New Zealand" said she hoped to be able to bring her burlesque striptease show here as well.

"I would love to visit New Zealand someday. I hope that I'll be able to see the store in person and meet my fans and maybe even put on a show."

Von Teese said her line was based on vintage lingerie, updated to be more wearable in modern times.

Farmers' managing director Rod McDermott said Von Teese was an international celebrity, setting trends worldwide, and her lingerie was providing an opportunity for women to enjoy glamour and confidence.

The Von Follies range is priced from $29.99 to $149.99.
