We had fringes, feathers and fluffy dog plus a few metres of rope pearls on location for our 1920s shoot featured on the cover and over 8 pages in the new issue of Epicurean Life.
With photographer, Darren Paul, and Gill East doing hair and make-up at The Gore Hotel, it was a case of all hands on deco.
The 20s are a stylist's favourite heaven - all that sensual silk, sparkling sequins and sensational flapper dresses. And the accessories? The cloche hats, the clutch bags and, of course, the cutest dog.
It was when Peppy Miller fell out of the crowd and Variety headlined Who’s That Girl? in The Artist that we all fell in love, once again, with 20s fashion. But this is not just a fickle fad - soon, we will be presented with F Scott Fitzgerald’s deliciously stylish
Daisy Buchanan in the remake of The Great Gatsby with Carey Mulligan and Leonardo diCaprio. Get ready to swoon with so much breathtaking 20s fashion inspiration.
For this shoot, we feature dresses by Herve Leger, Rebecca Cella, Patricia Lester, Alberta Ferretti, Patrizia Pepe and Frock and Frill. Accessories included shoes by Gianmarco Lorenzi, hats by Nigel Raymont and amazing pearls by Coleman Douglas - and, not forgetting, Misty, the dog (also modelling pearls).
So, fashion wise in the, slightly edited, words of the Great Scott, we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly (and stylishly) into the past.
