I spent some time this weekend collaborating with talented photographer Peter Tung, a good friend who has organized two ’80s-themed photo shoots for this coming week in Austin, Texas! We are thrilled to be featuring retro finds from Austin-based vintage clothing store New Bohemia. They consistently offer amazing ’80s pieces like rompers, tank tops, dresses and large plastic jewelry (the white necklace above is one of my personal purchases from New Bohemia). Add the expertise of stylist Matthew Klimek of Butterfly Entertainment, and this promises to be an ’80s-fabulous shoot!
We had fun brainstorming possible looks, including ’80s tribal and neon noir! It was interesting to see everything start to come together, especially as stylist Matthew Klimek began pulling pieces for the fittings. He has a great eye–I can’t wait to see him work his magic! Plus, with Peter Tung behind the camera, there are no limits to the rad factor of this shoot (see Peter’s work here). His photos leave me speechless! Below we see Klimek (left) and Tung (right) at our New Bohemia meeting. It’s an honor to be collaborating with these professionals!
A special thanks to New Bohemia for their kindness and support. Stay tuned for future posts that cover this week’s ’80s photo shoots… And Happy Monday!
