 A little while ago I was lucky enough to visit Academy New Zealand to do a session on vintage clothing for the Fashion and Beauty Retail Class, taught by vintage lover and sweetheart Andrea.  This is their main campus!  Best building eva!!


I had such a good time - the class was amazing - such a lovely group of young women.   They had such a good eye for what would suit them and their tastes were eclectic.  They looked amazing!!  A wee photo shoot followed with me in charge of the camera.  Some of the blurriest photos are the best - I'm posting them anyway - can't let quality get in the way of a good frock!

From Left:  Emily, Onassis, Me, Georgia, Emma, Jess, Kristy, Alice

More 70's heaven with Emily and Onassis

How cute is Emma in 1950's day wear?!!

Jaye looking fabulous in 50's floral!

Taking a rest from all that posing - still looking good though!

This dress looks like it was made for Onassis!

Looking happy and relaxed in 70's kaftans

Sorry about the sunnies - I'm not really too cool for school!

I Loved Alice's purple hair and how gorgeous does she look in 1960's pink?!!
