My love of vintage style has slowly crept up on me. I remember as a child watching old black and white movies and thinking how glamorous the women looked, but it wasn’t until a few years ago wearing a swing dress to a fancy dress charity ball that I was hooked. I love the 50’s style in particular, but also enjoy vintage with a modern twist. That’s why I created my shop so I could play around with the vintage inspired theme.
Vintage style can be so many things and I like to play around with those traditional shapes to make a hybrid design. I have a studio filled to the brim with beads and jewellery findings and I’m always looking for inspiration for my next design. I love to photograph all my work myself too. I find that playing around with the backgrounds to create a vintage feel has worked really well for me when selling my items online. I often use vintage papers and jars to display my items.
