Run-through


My friends and I decided to take another photoshoot. This time, it would be very different for we don’t need a lot of things to use. My friend said that this is going to be just a run-through photoshoot.

The photoshoot should be in a dark area and thus, we decided to take it inside our friend’s boarding house. The theme of this photoshoot was oh so unknown. It was just a plain photoshoot so we don’t need a label on it.

Any comment?

Vintage


Girls just wanna have fun. We are not models. We do this just for real fun! So who do you think we are? :)

What is VINTAGE??

Generally speaking, clothing which was produced before the 1920s is referred to as antique clothing and clothing from the 1920s to 1980s is considered vintage. Retro, short for retrospective, or "vintage style" usually refers to clothing that imitates the style of a previous era. Reproduction, or repro, clothing is a newly-made but faithful copy of an older garment. Clothing produced more recently is usually called modern or contemporary fashion. Opinions vary on these definitions.

Most vintage clothing has been previously worn, but a small percentage of pieces have not. These are often old warehouse stock, and more valuable than those that have been worn, especially if they have their original tags. Referred to as deadstock, they nevertheless sometimes have flaws.

Other reasons that some people are attracted to vintage clothing include:

Unique or almost unique: many items were custom made, and others were manufactured in small quantities only.
Good quality: they were designed to be worn for years and passed on to other family members, so they were made of robust materials, well cut and well made, with generous seam allowances and hems which allow for alterations and custom fit.
Fine materials: many of the unusual older fabric types are no longer manufactured, or are now prohibitively expensive.
Value for money: garments generally sell for a cost far below similar new modern garments.
History: an appreciation of the past, the roles of previous generations and the skills of respected designers.
Detailing: hand finishing, unusual buttons, hand embroidery, handmade lace, crochet, applique, beading and other techniques.
Style: vintage clothing has traditionally been the favourite of creative personalities because it offers an enormously wide range of imaginative styles.
Investment: some people buy to collect rather than to wear, and increasingly, good quality vintage garments especially items by well-known designers are sought after by collectors.
Union made: many vintage clothes carry a union label, thus avoiding labor practices in third world countries that are regarded as abusive.
