1940’s Tribute

Black and White, Fashion, Portrait, Styled Shoot
Please enjoy our third styled shoot of 2014. This 1940’s theme was modeled after Jen’s (the designer) grandmother.

One had to adapt in the 40’s due to wartime rationing.  In the early 1940’s women’s skirts and dresses became shorter to save on fabric, as a result, legs became a prominent and desirable feature.

Hairstyles were a way to remain fashionable despite textile rationing. And since hair cuts were expensive and short hair was hard to tie back at work, long hair was in vogue.

Bold makeup added a feminine angle to plain clothing. Eye makeup was fairly tame, but bright, matte lip colors, ruled the day.

Entranced by rural and urban decay. I am drawn to these forlorn sites because they emote conflicting sentiments of beauty and disintegration.
