behind the scenes of our vintage loves shoot!

have you guys seen our new vintage loves vignette, aphrodite? the collection contains some exquisite dresses by designers like oscar de la renta, mary mcfadden, koos van den akker and guy laroche, in delicate fabrics and shades of ivory, cream and taupe.  i think a lot of these would make amaaaazing wedding dresses! we shot the vignette a couple of months back here at our home office and i snapped some behind the scenes photos for you.




detail of the oscar de la renta dress.



the stunning rope detail on the mary mcfadden gown – sure to make its wearer feel like the greek goddess of beauty ;)


our lovely web merchandiser was the model in the shoot!

I love to look at interiors and the ones you feature are always so fab. But I find the set up for her photography especially interesting and love the idea of the giant frame doing double duty to hang the complete collection being photographed like a story board and the metaphorical use of the frame as a backdrop.
