Recently, a friend asked me to work with her on a project involving vintage clothing. I am a big fan of things old. I have spent many Saturdays at antique malls and flea markets. I have been known to collect choice pieces for my home and even for photo shoots. While I have always been inspired by vintage fashion, I have never collected it as much as I have furniture and other household items. Needless to say, when Rachel asked me to join her, I was elated!
We are currently going through clothes, cleaning up items, and putting together outfits. We are even dressing up a mannequin, who Rachel has so lovingly named “Dotty”. The inspiration is flowing, along with the customary girl talk. So far, we are having a great time. Of course, I felt that photo documentation was necessary and I’m excited to show off these behind the scenes images of our progress. In the weeks to come, I hope to have some more involved details about our adventure and obviously some photos as well. (Who knows, maybe we will have time for some stylized sessions.)
