Never a dull moment!

Yes, we know it has been quiet on the Frockery Talk front this month, the reason being that we have been busier than ever here.  We couldn't be so, of course, without the support of our lovely customers, so thank you to all those who asked if we were OK. We are fine and dandy!

As regular readers will know, in addition to running our online shop, we frequently supply clothing and accessories for photo shoots and other creative projects. We are privileged to work with a talented bunch of photographers, film makers, models and hair and make up artists, as well as everyday folk who fancy getting all dollyfrocked up for a special occasion.

While we are catching our breath, we thought we'd share some of what we've been up to lately.

Here is a sneak peek behind the scenes at a Sweeney Todd shoot, with model Taylor Sommerville and hair/make up artists Sandra Cormack and Raymond Wood. Mrs Lovett was frocked by us and there was much (thankfully fake!) blood spilt on location in Edinburgh. Look out for some striking images by Louise Beattie  in the upcoming edition of Invite Magazine Scotland.

Just last week, Glasgow photographer Oliver Schneider shot some incredible images of model Kelly Donaghy in his homage to Marlene Dietrich. As ever, Sandra Cormack excelled with some amazing hair and make up, and Kelly looked stunning in our vintage frockery with additional pieces provided by Dundee Rep.

Here she is in one of Sandra's snaps behind the scenes wearing a late 80s Belville Sassoon black cocktail dress with lace bodice, keyhole back and cream satin cuffs (part of the chief frocker's personal collection). Look out for Oliver's professional shots, which are under wraps for the moment, as this is one special frock - not unlike this iconic example by the same designer, which was owned by Princess Diana and is on display at Kensington Palace.

And here are some of Oliver's unedited images of Kelly rocking the Dietrich in top hat and tails from Dundee Rep (left) and one of our vintage silk sequinned tops (right).

Finally, a few more preview shots from Oliver with Kelly in one of our black silk bias cut evening gowns draped in an antique embroidered silk piano shawl (top) and that fabulous top hat again from Dundee Rep (bottom).
