I recently asked my friend Yvonne if I could photograph pieces from her amazing wardrobe. Yvonne dresses impeccably, she’s like a Jeannie Little & Anna Piaggi hybrid. Her sense of theatricality, texture and proportion are fascinating. I’ve tried my best to capture some of her standout pieces from her wardrobe. I cannot even begin to explain how impressed and amazed I was by Yvonne’s collection of clothing and accessories. After we’d sat down & caught up I was given access to her wardrobes filled with the likes of vintage Cacharel, Sonia Rykiel, early Jenny Bannister, Nina Ricci, Vivienne Westwood and exceptional vintage pieces. I didn’t even cover a third of her numerous wardrobes! Yvonne owns everything from mid 50’s pvc gear to elegant Parisian chiffon gowns, not to mention; her extensive millinery collection (approx 350 pieces). Hope you enjoy!
