It has been so hot here, getting photos of this dress has been a nightmare! The first time we went, we gave up after about 20 minutes, but the second, we managed to stick with it long enough to get some good photos! I have to say as much as I love summer, I’m ready for the weather to cool off.
My newest 1950’s dress! I call it my picnic dress because the pattern sort of reminds me a vintage picnic blanket. I love the soft colours and the v-neck, and I’m so happy with how it turned out. Photos are by Chris Mackay. Unfortunately I didn’t take many progress photos of this, but it took around 7 hours to make, and we ventured out on a 93 degree day to photograph it. More pictures are below!
A few people asked me what it looked like behind the scenes of shooting my High Fashion Classics series, so this is a just a post of pictures of some of the bloopers and what it looked like getting ready for photos. Essentially, it was utter chaos sometimes, and it was absolutely lovely. Each shoot took a few hours, depending on how many books were being done. Hair and make up were done in between, and anywhere between 1 and 3 models were there at a time. Obviously, there was a lot of laughter and silly faces, especially when trying to get a few people organized and putting on serious faces.

This is a picture heavy post.

I’m really excited to start posting about this project! For the last few weeks, I’ve been taking fashion portrait and magazine style photos of various classic books, trying to show the themes and symbolism through a still image. I’ve had some wonderful people model for me, and it’s been so much fun to shoot, if a lot of work and a little bit of chaos.
