Men of the Manor


A few weeks ago I was asked by Abbie Rodger's a local photographer from my hometown if I would be interested in styling a vintage menswear photoshoot at Mount Stuart which would be used for her Graded unit. Mount Stuart is located on the Isle of Bute and is seen as a 'architectural masterpiece'. It is a key place for visitors to see when visiting the island and is also a sought after wedding venue with the likes of Fashion designer Stella McCartney getting married here in 2003 and JB from JLS choosing to get married here in summer 2014.

As this is the route of work I want to do I was more than willing to get involved. At first if I'm honest I didn't have a clue where to start, I sort of figured as I was just some random girl asking to borrow clothes overnight for a photoshoot that most would just turn me away, Which did happen a lot. After many emails and messages sent we finally got somewhere with a shop called 'Vintage Guru' which is located on Byres road, West end Glasgow. They were more than willing to get involved and provide me with anything I needed. I visited the shop and was able to pick everything I wanted to complete 3 different looks ranging from tweed jackets and blazers down to hats and braces. The girls working at the shop couldn't be more helpful and kind assisting me with the measurements and ensuring everything was right for when I would be collecting the items.

Another vintage shop located in Finnieston, Glasgow named 'We love to boogie' were also kind enough to supply us with last minute bits and pieces like shirts and trousers to pull all the looks together. Abbie managed to get Braehead Clan players Tristan and Zack to model who both did an amazing job.

The day couldn't of went any better and the pictures have came out amazing. I would like to thank 'Vintage guru' and 'We love to boogie' for making my job a lot easier and most importantly id like to thank Abbie for this opportunity as it definitely benefited all that were involved and I look forward to working together again!!
