More images of Debora's 'bella' creations can be found here.
From that intial order, I asked Debora if she'd like to collaborate further and we got together on a photoshoot project to showcase our services. I ran a competition and asked entrants to send me their photo with a description of why they would like to be styled vintage. I chose five lovely ladies to take part.
We did the shoot over two days on the Bank Holiday weekend in May.
We couldn't of asked for better weather. On the Saturday we went to local Duxbury Park with our first two models.
|Duxbury Park was so quiet|
|The models received many admiring glances|
People approached us to ask questions and we got so many compliments, it was lovely.
If you are looking for a unique 1940s or 1950s reproduction from an original pattern, I cannot recommend The Black Pinafore highly enough.
