My uncle has made my week. He heard that I had a fashion show shoot to do before the end of the month and therefore decided to give me my birthday present early. It's a darling of a vintage camera, trouble is I haven't the foggiest how to work it, I'm going to get online and research it I think. I can't wait to get to grips with how it works in time for the show, a vintage camera for a vintage fashion show. I'm really progressing well with my photography through all these oppurtunities at work, vintage clothing is always something I've been passionate about, especially the 1940's, I think it was the elegance and boymeetsgirl cuts. Hence my love of brogues, they're the perfect shoe for both gender. 1940's become a turning point because jackets weren't just for business men anymore, but they also came with a gorgeous clinched in waist to excentuate a womans figure. It was a powerful time for us ladies post-war and this is definately reflected in the fashions. Especially looking at icon at the time, such as the beautiful actress Veronica Lake. She was successful beautiful and above all a clever woman. That's why 1940's fashion should be remembered as a time of change and prosper for women. These strong yet flattering shapes, changed the face of fashion, from this moment on, women's clothing was powerful.
