Spring Photoshoot

So we did a shoot last week for high summer and autumn but this post is about our previous photo-shoot back in Feb because we need to catch up on our posts (eek)

Usual suspects included Clare from HoF to style and Bethany Jane Davies from The Vintage Beauty Parlour in Manchester who we often have for our shoots. We at Foxy have worked with Bethany for several years and she is a good friend and has recently been nominated in the National Vintage Awards - good luck Bethany.

New faces for us are Tanya, our model, and Chris Lord photographer.

Tanya is a professional model and part-time student. She was just what we were looking for - strawberry blonde and freckly. But even better - she is a quirky, free spirit who isn't afraid of anything new! Not a diva in sight ;-)

We wanted a studio shoot that was beautiful and vintage inspired - but not pin up. Chris is an inspirational photographer who brought many new ideas to the shoot including a rotating set which ties our collection together whilst not detracting from the garments.

Creating the set
It was a lot of fun (although messy too) getting it ready.

There's a lot of yellow in this SS15 collection - I think this could be because I have been frustrated by the lack of sunshine (certainly in Yorkshire) and wanted to add some extra brightness in the stock room.

But there is plenty of variety in print and texture in this collection and we are pleased to see the entrance of some styles that are influenced by the 20s - something that I personally, am very excited about. I especially love the late 20s/early 30s when staggered & asymmetric hemlines started coming through and the waistline started to move up to its natural position.

Anyway - thanks again to Chris, Bethany and the gorgeous Tanya for helping us create this great collection of images.
