Tiki-tastic! Miss Fortune Collaborates With The Ladies Of The Pinup Academy!

The Pinup Academy
The Pinup Academy, a Midlands based collective of models and a photographer who travel the country doing make overs, location shots and pop up photo studios, were taking their show on the road to the alternative fashion trade fair, London Edge. They bought us in for a collaboration with them at the show.  We provided outfits for their 5 beautiful ladies to compliment their pop up tiki photo set.

We went back though our back catalogue and dug some gems off the sample rail for this shoot and here are the results!

Super “Cheesecake” Photo Shoot at Frankii & Gerry’s Retro Studio – as featured in Rebelicious Magazine

Frankii & Gerry's
www.frankiiandgerrys.com

When we heard one of our models, Frankii Wilde, was setting up her own photo studio in Newcastle with fellow retro brand owner Gerry, of Glamour Bunny, we jumped at the chance to be first customer though the doors!

Not just a pretty face, Frankii is also a photographer and though the power of voodoo (we assume) she can now photograph herself in her very own retro studio set up! Frankii & Gerry'sSo many great sets to choose from! We went for the kitchen, powder room & bedroom!

We chose to shoot with Frankii & one of our other regular models Zara Ann.  We couldn’t be there on the day for the shoot so the ladies kept us up to date via instagram with some behind the scenes shots!

5 Great Floral Swing Dresses for Spring / Summer from Miss Fortune!

Tis the season to wear florals!  We’re loving the current spell of warm weather in the UK, we can finally start to break out the summer wardrobe!  It’s been so lovely I’ve even been tempted to buy a garden parasol, think positive, I say!

We’ve got 5 new floral print dresses so far this season in a variety of colours to suit all tastes!

One Fine day!

First off we have the One Fine Day Dress in Cream Rose and Red Rose.  A wing bust swing dress with halter neck ties in complimentary plain cotton.  The dresses come with the elastic belts so you just need a petticoat to finish off the look!
