I love it when I am invited along to a special occassion to record and photograph that moment in time. Martina's birthday party held at their incredibly stunning home in Blenheim, was a party inspired by the classic era of the 1940's. Well I can say I am a huge fan of this era and Martina's family and friends pulled it off beautifully! Firstly I would like to say how talented at stylising Martina is, the effort and thought was extraordinary. The details did not dissapoint, the black & white movies playing in the lounge, the music and the amazing food and drinks! All I can say bring back the teacups! Everything was collected by friends and op shopping, there was a little story in every little detail. Everyone looked incredible, honestly they looked like they had all stepped off the 1940's train. Womans fashion was breaking new grounds in the 1940's with the rationing of fabrics brought shorter hemlines and more masculine shape but with still maintaining a feminine silhouette. Also lets not forget the furs, they were drop dead gorgeous! The guys looked the part with a dapper/Gangsta vibe happening. It really was a special era in history. Below I have put together a small gallery of some of the images for you to feast your eyes on. Thank you Martina & Khalid for having me along.
