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.
