1940s Jazz Duo Design

Last year I had the pleasure of creating a vintage look for a fabulous local Jazz Duo -The Christine Geiger Duo with the lovely Christine Geiger and Annie South. These very talented ladies wanted a vintage inspired 1940s look created that they could wear to all their performances, so I got to work on creating an individual dress style for each of them which suited their silhouette and a matching headpiece to suit the look.

Knowing the dresses would have to wash and wear well as they be worn week after week, we decided on a practical but lovely crepe fabric in a lovely chocolate shade - perfect for that 1940s look and jazzed them each up with a bit of bling; being a sequin motif on the shoulder. I also created a simple but gorgeous felt headpiece for each of them in chocolate adorned with handmade grossgrain ribbon embelishments and more sequin motives.

The ladies had the very talented Annalee Beckman from Journey Shots take professional photos of their look and the results were stunning so I just had to share.
