L'Trimm were a teen female Miami bass\hip-hop duo from Kendall, Florida that consisted of members Lady Tigra (born Rachel de Rougemount) and Bunny D. (born Elana Cager).
The girls met in high school and regularly attended a teen dance club called Skylight Express, which featured hip-hop and Miami Bass music and artists. They were featured dancers on the syndicated television show, "Miami Teen Express."
Lady Tigra was an amateur graffiti artist and break-dancer who wrote rhymes while Bunny D. was a classically trained dancer and performer who also wrote hip-hop lyrics.
One afternoon, the girls went into a recording booth at Hot Productions Studios and began rhyming just for fun. Paul Klein (who worked at Hot Productions) discovered the girls and employed producer Larry Davis to construct some hook-oriented tracks for the duo around the girls' pre-written rhymes.
Lady Tigra was 16 years old and Bunny was 17 years old when they signed with the Hot Productions record label. The duo took their name from a then-popular brand of blue jeans called Trim and added the L'-prefix to give it a French feel.
The album was released in 1991 and sold poorly. After being unable to score another hit, L'Trimm broke up.
These days, Bunny D. is married with four children. She has been working as nurse for 20 years along with designing a clothing line & having a series of children's books.
Lady Tigra later moved to New York City where she managed nightclubs. In 2008, she released her first solo album "Please Mr. Boombox." She also performed the jingle on the website for Pinkberry and appeared on the Nickelodeon children's television series "Yo Gabba Gabba."
