Many great retro fashion brands took to the catwalk, worn by 8 beautiful pin ups including non other than Bernie Dexter!

We were lucky to get quite a few nice shots back from the show, which was well attended by patrons of the festival.  Here are a selected few…

BACK IN THE CALM OF THE STUDIO….
We have also done a little studio shoot with Miss Rain Photography to really capture the outfits.

This is first playsuit I made Gem, just for fitting purposes and to check how she liked the design.  We did this back in march.  I love this colourway but it’s maybe a bit too subtle for a pinup contest

We decided the skirt reveal would add a fun element to the pinup contest 🙂

Finally, the evening dress in all it’s glory!
