Starting Jean Carol for an older audience, she went on to design for movie stars at the time such as, Bette Davis, Marlene Dietrich and more.

So obviously I was over the moon when I found this original piece of Hollywood history!Becoming more and more fascinated by how people lived their lives at the turn of the last century and throughout history. Researching fashion history, psychology and symbolism, has been for me, the best way to start to understand history.

So for this shoot I wanted to tie all of this together.
