Over the years music and fashion has changed but one thing that has never totally disappeared is our love and fascination for the 50’s and it’s lifestyle. Today, Miss Happ takes all these classic influences, mixes them & brings you a range of clothing for the girl with a desire to be an individual.
Miss Happ is a local, original, South African produced and designed clothing and accessory range. Find us at our retail store, Retrospective, 215 Long Street, Cape Town
We recently did a collaborative shoot with Collin from Collin Albertus Photography and Miss Happ clothing & accessories. All clothing used is from our new Miss Happ summer 2013 range (in stores from October).
We were lucky enough to be able to use some of the awesome Zoom shoes from their Summer 2012/13 range as well as some amazing designer sunglasses from local store The Oculus. The looks were complete and oh so pin-up! The girls really worked well together - we decided to go with two red heads for a change and it looked great - it also helps to have a real old skool vintage Hudson Hornet as a prop - a fab car that had a killer sound!
We decided to do a location shoot, and shot on a little road near Melmesbury. We loved the way the photos had that kinda "Thelma & Louise" look..two gals going on a road trip! The weather started off ok, after watching the forecast closely for days it was now or never, and I must say the girls braved it right to the end when it started drizzling and got quite icy cold! Great sports they were!
The shoot was a two fold one, with pics also being shot for the "Pin up of the month" for local hot rod magazine, SA Hotrods. One great pic has now been selected, and will be in the NOVEMBER issue of the mag which is exciting.
