The Okeys basement was the go to place for playing dressups on a rainy day in our neighbourhood. It was also brilliant for having a good old fossick through for a treasure to wear to an up coming costume party.
It was not unusual to get a phone call from family or friends asking to come over and have a rummage in the basement.
I was thrilled when this client bought just a few of her fabulous collection of vintage pieces to the studio to create a set in which to have her portrait taken.
I have always had a love for vintage clothing and accessories, which is hardly surprising since I spent hour upon hour of my childhood playing dress ups in that musty old basement!
