On a bright sunny morning Missy Vintage, Joe Black and his lovely wife Milda packed the car and headed out to Hoveton Hall – a beautiful hall which is available to hire for weddings, other events and the gardens are open during the summer to wander around.
We were shooting a “vintage sports” story for a well know vintage magazine – I can’t release any images yet as it is all under wraps for a while but can show you a few behind the scenes sneaky peeks and a few pictures of my inspiration for the shoot.
Saturday saw me at the AGM for the Costumes and Textiles Association which was followed by a fascinating talk by Martin Colan who spoke and showed us examples of Chinese costumes and the meaning behind the textiles – Writing in Threads.
Sunday and I headed off to Talc a wonderful coffee shop in Norwich to showcase the dresses in a fashion show for Kerry Parker and Brain Tumour Research – organised by Carmen Kennedy and her photographer daughter Fran – alongside the collection was vintage swimwear from Lulu Vintage and Carmen’s own range – Curtains for Cancer by Carmen Hyde Johnson.
We sipped Pimms and cocktails in the sunshine, raised lots of money for a good cause.
Photos – thanks to Fran Kennedy.
So after a few busy weeks it is back in the office for the rest of this week, camping at the weekend then I am taking a well deserved break with my hubby culminating with my birthday treat at Claridges – so watch out for photo overload in coming posts – Deco glamour, cocktails and outfits.
