Rockabilly at Vintage Carousel

I was location scouting for my latest photo shoot when I stumbled across a quirky vintage shop on Hawker St, Brompton called Vintage Carousel. After peering in the window I knew it would be the perfect spot for a Rockabilly collection.

I left a message for the owner with the cafe next door and within a few hours the lovely Rachel Will returned my call. She was enthusiastic about the idea of hosting an in-house photoshoot and after I explained my vision it was a done deal.

I took inspiration from the classic 50s rockabilly style, vintage hair and makeup styles, vintage clothing and tattoos.

If you're looking for a vintage high without the crazy prices then take a trip to Vintage Carousel. Rachel has a fine selection of vintage clothing, shoes, bags and other bits and pieces that will transform your pad into a retro paradise.

Thanks again to all of my collaborators and be sure to check out Vintage Carousel!
