Behind the scenes at BRAVA’s vintage fashion shoot
This particular fashion shoot holds a special place in my heart.
Not necessarily because we made it through a monstrous snowstorm (inclement weather conditions are common on BRAVA fashion shoot days…we’re used to it now).
Not necessarily because it took over eight (eight!) hours from start to finish either.
It’s not even because our fabulous model, Dione Laufenberg, owner of Indulge Spa on Madison’s east side, was 11 weeks pregnant. (No joke: Can you believe it? 11 weeks!)
This was a special shoot for me because it was my first time working with vintage fashion in BRAVA! I shop vintage myself but have just never had the opportunity to work with vintage goods for a shoot like this. And let me tell you, it renewed an entirely new love of resale shopping for me. The glory of hunting for the perfect piece; the jaw-dropping affordable prices; the touch of history, packed into each piece. I loved every minute of it!
