School's Out For Summer!

July 12, 2013

We made the most of the sun's latest outing for our summer lookbook shoot on Wednesday. Here's your chance to catch a taster of what went down.
We had a brilliant day gallivanting around London Fields and Broadway Market, with lots of hula hooping and bubble-blowing along the way! The wonderful Iris Björk was back as our photographer and worked her usual magic. Our two fab models were MOT's Jess Williams, a seasoned pro, and her lovely counterpart Steph French, who was new to the game but a joy to shoot! Make-up artist Ekaterina Novinskaya got our girls all glammed up and prepped throughout. 
The girls had lots of fun playing around with the props (yes, one of these WAS a blow-up dolphin!) and brought the clothes to life for our summer lookbook, themed around bright, popping colours: school's out for summer and holidays are for the taking; time to start planning away! They looked gorgeous in all their outfits, which included flowing dresses and flirty skirts, cute crop tops, and dazzlingly colourful swimwear. 
These will hit the store very soon, in time to perk up your wardrobe ahead of the picnic-fuelled, lazy days of a London summer.
Take a look behind the scenes of our fun-drenched day and be sure to check out the lookbook when it goes live in the next few days,    and don't hesitate to email us at shop@birdonawirevintage.com for reservations and enquires.
