Before the days of fast fashion and a new trend that came every month and went away with it, was a time of pure elegance, simplicity, and beauty. I’m of-course talking about the 1950s and 1960s era of Fashion. During this time some the most celebrated designers of today began there careers designers like; Valentino, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Pierre Balmain and the list goes on.
I’ve always enjoyed seeing pictures of that period it makes me wonder of how everyone dressed as if there was attending a dinner party on New Years Eve.
These photographs and editorial is perhaps my tribute to the elegant and fashionable 50s & 60s decades. The day we shot these images required an umbrella and Jennifer’s umbrella with its polka dot print was perfect for our shoot. The mini French like dress with anchor on the button and the gingham print of the dress echoed the 50s and 60s in more contemporary fashion. With a few additional accessories like the big round sunglasses frame, silk scarf and a hat we had ourselves the perfect outfit to celebrate the 50s and 60s.
