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!

Indigo Rose wears a one off hot pink version of our V for Va Va Voom Skirt teamed with a one off Hawaiian print gypsy top.

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!

After these tantalising teasers we couldn’t wait for the final photos!  When we saw the final edits we were so chuffed!  Rebelicious Magazine also loved the photos and decided to publish a spread of them in their August issue!

Miss Fortune on the Catwalk at Americana International Festival!

Blimey! How time has flown since Americana International Festival in July!  We’ve been super busy moving offices and preparing for Autumn/Winter.  I’ve finally managed to grab 5 minutes to blog some of the photos and the video from the show!

The Rockin’ Fashion show, organised by BooBoo Kitty Couture, took place at the Americana International Festival, a great outdoor American vehicle & music show in Leicestershire, UK.

We got to visit the show on the 2nd day of the weekend and although the weather may have been a little inclement as we arrived, inside the big blue top collections from 12 great brands and 18 beautiful pinups were ready to brightened up the day!  As the afternoon wore on the sun even put in an appearance!
