Shooting at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, AZ is always fun but this one was a bit different. Claudine from Black Cat Vintage, a vintage clothing store based in Tucson, called me to do a fashion shoot with a selection of her finest clothing. Specializing in mid-century designs previously worn by the likes of Betty Grable, the Hotel Valley Ho made a perfect setting. Huge THANK YOU to Kristin Heggli at the hotel for all of her help. Since every piece has lived such a historic life, the concept of using mannequins was born. “If these clothes could only talk…” Our main character, Amazonia, and her girlfriends were brought to life by these beautiful outfits for a weekend retreat.
Be sure to follow blackcatvintage.com as Claudine finalizes her new online showcase. Who knows where we’ll find Amazonia next time.
