Happy Birthday Southern Retro!

Today is a very special day... not only is it my birthday but it's also the first anniversary of the Southern Retro project.

Exactly a year ago today the lovely Ms Donna Grimaldi invited me into her little flat in Brighton to take the very first shots for the project.

"What the hell were you doing working on your birthday?!" I hear you cry. Well for me this wasn't really work, it was a personal project and it was important to me for many reasons (detailed below)... plus, you know, I would always remember it's anniversary! ;-)

Now I know every now and again the mainstream fashion industry has a brief dalliance with all things Retro, but in the most part these are re-imaginings (boy I hate that word) or 'homages' and only reflect aspects of the styles that are being referenced, they never go 'all-out' and it's never about re-creating the look in it's entirety or re-creating styles from the past.
