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.

Bernie Dexter & Jessica Holly for Miss Fortune

We’ve had some lovely images from a couple of models recently!

Firstly the fabulous pin up model and retro clothing designer Bernie Dexter, from the States!

She really is a doll, we gave her a sample of our Peek-a-boo Top last year when we met her at the Americana fashion show and she has recently sent us some studio images of her in the top photographed by her lovely fella Levi Dexter!

Little Gem, representing Miss Fortune, Wins 2nd Place at Hemsby Pinup Contest!


It’s taken a little while to find the time to post this but we are chuffed to bits to say that model, Little Gem, won 2ND prize, while representing Miss Fortune at the Hemsby Rock ‘n’Roll festival weekender!  We’re so chuffed!

We didn’t get to go the show ourselves to see the contest but have been fortunate enough to get a few shots back from Pyramid Clicks photography and others attending the event.

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

Then for the final design which we photographed after the contest.

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

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

It was really fun getting to do a playsuit and an evening dress which I’ve never previously made and also an interesting process, working with Little Gem on the concept and design and then making the bespoke outfits for her.  She was really great  to work with and did us proud at the show!
