The Rusty Zip End Of Summer Fashion Show @ The Retro Show 2012


Clothing - The Rusty Zip 
MUA - Miss Ready 2 Wear
Hair - Vintage Rocks 

For this year's Rusty Zip fashion show in the Baby Grand for Pretty N' Pink we included clothing throughout the decades from the 1950s through to the 80s.

A bright and colourful boardwalk theme featuring a beautiful emerald green 50s prom dress accompanied by a dapper boater hat gent kick-started the event! Rockabilly pin-up chic rocked the floor in the form of an Elvis record bag which was then followed by soft gardenia florals to set an eclectic tone for the rest of the show. A cutesy mod dress and evening glamour featuring a stunning fuschia pink sequined dress ruled the 60s section. 

Inspired by bohemian psychedelia and Studio 54 (top pics) playful prints were present in swirls, rainbow stripes and Missoni style zig zags. The top left maxi-dress would be lovely for layering in Autumn! As you can see in the finale pic formal wear, 80s metallic detailing, leather (and not forgetting the MJ t-shirt) completed our show. All in all it went down well...phew! Big thanks to everyone who helped out! x

Teddy Baby Bespoke Handmade Hats

Lovely couple Susie Cuthill and Simon Howell create stylish, funky handmade hats for all ages using their own pure hand-spun wool. A spinning wheel, a crochet hook and some knitting needles produces these beautiful wonders! "The beauty of hand-spun wool is that it's durable, natural and eco-friendly and not to mention irresistibly tactile."
