Yesterday I styled a photoshoot for The Palpitations' lead singer, Danielle Webb. With the wonderfully talented photographer Holly Falconer and make-up artist to the stars Bella Cruikshank, I took some of the best vintage pieces from both my personal collection and the Vintage Secret wardrobe, with the aim of mixing up the eras; some 50s glam with a touch of 80s rough.
The star of the show- other than the gorgeous Danielle of course!- was an amazing 1950s wedding dress I found in a charity shop.It is for sale if anyone's interested...sadly even if I could convince my man to marry me, I could barely get one thigh into this frock- though its not as ridiculously tiny as some vintage pieces, its a modern size 8.
We'll be running a Vintage Secret stall at the Pushing Pussy Christmas Exravaganza, at the swanky new Blues Kitchen venue in Camden. There'll be live music from Billy Vincent as well the Moon Music Orchestra, and records will be spun by the lovely Miss Chazmatazz, plus a mini Christmas shopping fair, where you will be able to browse and buy clothes and accessories from Vintage Secret, Frangipane Honey bespoke jewellery and Jasmine Teacup handmade fascinators as well as Pushing Pussy merchandise and other goodies.
The next night, on the 3rd, Danielle and The Palpitations will be running their new night with Andrew Weatherall at The Rest is Noise in Brixton.You can check out the new single and video here.
Anyway...here are some 'behind the scenes' pics I took yesterday, just to give you a taster. Final snaps from Holly still to come. FYI, Holly is one of the brains behind 'The most cake', whose launch party will be at The Book Club tomorrow night. Bella also did the make-up at our first TART event last weekend- see the photos from it here.
