Are you a fan of Mad Men? The latest series begins in the swinging sixties – think mini skirts, bold patterns, chic updos and a whole summer of love! When Natasha from Pretty Me Vintage mentioned she wanted to try out a vintage look with 60s inspired make up and a beehive (check it out!) I was more than excited to photograph it. I LOVE Brutalist architecture and the post war Barbican Estate with its strong shapes, forms, elevated walkways and concrete vistas was the perfect backdrop for gorgeous model Megan McConnell and our vintage look.

Megan wore an original 1960s blue and green striped dress by Neatawear, an original Biba coat and daisy necklace and hair pins.
