Having fun, the old fashioned way

Creating a shoot that looks perfectly vintage but uses modern clothing is something of an art. Usually it’s all about the antiquing effects post-applied to the photos, but in the case of this shoot by Liz Ham there’s little of that (bar for some shots being black and white). Instead its a subtle combination of styling and direction that works so perfectly well to recall another era. There’s nothing in these shots to suggest it and yet, it’s easy to imagine that they’re set in a time when iphones and video games and Facebook were unimagined concepts and egg-and-spoon races were a valid form of entertainment. Such is the power of activity in shoots, and models Grace Hollows, Zippora Seven and Georgia Fowler pull off the youthful, pre-digital age fun with sublime conviction.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
