August Sander’s Androgynous Secretary in Tate Modern

Browsing the Tate Modern art gallery I was struck by this 1930’s secretary, posing for German Documentary photographer August Sander, oozing nonchalance with her slouchy stance, cigarette in hand. Ok this cool as a cucumber muse is in Cologne rather than the streets of London, but her portrait is in London. Two things to note, firstly, what luxuriousness to wear that black satin applique dress to the office, and secondly, she was rocking the androgynous look way before Twiggy, Erin O’Connor and recent male-model-on-a-womens-wear-catwalk sensation Andrej Pejic. No visible bust, beautiful boyish features and a Richie Hawtin hair style cropped one side with an asymmetric fringe, all polish her androgynous look nicely.

Mud and Glamour at Goodwood Vintage Festival

Amazing outfits & alternative girl band Gaggle

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]rmed with red lippy, fish nets and our best charity shop attire we headed to the first Vintage Festival at Goodwood in Sussex.  We caught The Noisettes, The Faces and rocked our floaty frocks in the roller disco and soul casino. The festival, dreamed up by Wayne Hemingway, included a pop-up 300 yard high street with a John Lewis, The Body Shop, Oxfam, Primark and a vintage catwalk theatre. Fortunately our wellies weren’t needed and the weather allowed us to get photo’s of some great retro outfits from rockabilly and mod to burlesque and 1940’s glam. One of our music highlights was 20-piece female choir Gaggle, (see bottom) described as “a response to boring man bands and bad burlesque and a force to be reckoned with musically, sexually and creatively”, who sang whilst simultaneously strutting their stuff on the catwalk.
