Nilly Wearing our White and Black Wiggle Dress

In August and September I went a little bit photo shoot crazy. I contacted a number of local models and photographed some lovely ladies wearing a number of outfits from our collection. They included our 50’s dresses, rockabilly dresses, costumes and the wiggle dress that I’m featuring in this blog post.

This was my first shoot with Nilly and it couldn’t have gone much better. She’s not had much experience as a model but I couldn’t tell as soon as we started to get some shots. She’s very friendly, creative and looks fantastic in the outfits we chose to shoot with.

Due to Nilly’s slender figure we decided that our black and white wiggle dress was a good choice. The weather was perfect with the sun shining and there wasn’t a cloud in the light blue sky. We had a short walk from my house to a quiet road between rows of terraced houses, which offered a good number of background options. There was an aged brick wall that immediately caught our attention and it’s where we started our photo set.

This dress is made from a cotton and elastane blend to give it some stretch. It has a hidden zip that makes it much easier to get in and out of and a black bow in the centre of the bust.

The outfit is priced at £29.99 and is available in UK sizes 8-20. We’ve sold a number of these dresses to vintage clothing stores and independant businesses who use them as staff uniforms. They’re hard wearing and perfect for day to day wear. My partner Kat has a few (she has a habit of taking things from my stock room) and wears them to work regularly. They’ve been through the wash countless times and still look as good as the day they came out of the packaging.

Our polka dot wiggle dresses come in a number of colours; red and black, black and white, and white and black.

With this shot I asked Nilly to get creative and try a few different poses. I love how this came out and this it looks fantastic with the brick wall as the backdrop.

I also love the pose in the next picture. The dress looks fantastic on her and fitted her perfectly.
