Welcome to a new series of Vintage Portraits, contributed by the very talented Simon from Alt.Studio in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Find out more about Simon and his photography on the About page.
Name: Alice Kitty Wink
Occupation: Makeup and hair artist with an enthusiasm for vintage. I style for special occasions, events, photo shoots and workshops. I also organise a networking group for small vintage business owners in the North West. www.kittywinkvintage.co.uk
Theme of the photoshoot: 1920s Vamp! I took the opportunity to try a completely different look. I was thrilled with how they styled me, so much so that I recently had my hair cut into a very short 1920s-inspired bob.
Future use: I’ve already used one of the shots of on the footer of my website. They’ll make great publicity shots for my website and stationary/business cards etc – hopefully people won’t expect me to look like that when they meet me though – ahh the pressure! They are truly beautiful, artistic images and something I will treasure forever.
