A Photographic Tribute to John Willie

A Photographic Tribute to John Willie

Foreword

I first published this fetish inspired photo set back in February 2016.

One of my first forays into alternative pinup, it was a vital step toward developing my own style as a pinup model. Looking back at it now, I feel like it was a decade ago – Ruby and I look so young! With fetish influenced material now making up a high percentage of my modelling catalogue it seems like a notable shoot to revisit…

My original 2016 Post ( With a Little Fleshing Out )

As a vintage loving model and designer I’m ever excited to pay tribute to those who shaped the worlds of fashion, pinup and vintage erotica. Illustrator and publisher of Bizarre magazine John Willie played an enormous role in these areas, so when Froger approached me about a photographic homage I was immediately on board.

 

Whisked off to a secret derelict location with co-model and friend Ruby Von Rifle, we worked in dingy, damp surroundings to create a fitting tribute to Sweet Gwendoline and her more dominant counterparts. It’s a more fetishistic theme than my previous shoots; something that presents its own challenges but which I thoroughly enjoyed and hope you will too x

Outfit Breakdown
-Damsel in Distress-

Vintage yellow robe & nightgown | Preloved
Sheer nude nylons | Pretty Pins Hosiery

Would you believe that nightgown and robe are from different sets!? Both are vintage nylon garments and are identical shades of lemon sorbet yellow. I found the nightgown in a op shop, it has the loveliest sheer embroidered midsection. The robe came with a fluffy babydoll nightgown I purchased on Trademe. You can find photos and info on that set in my Lemon Souffle Sleepwear post.

Nothing makes me feel more in control than a black on black outfit. For fear of sounding like a broken record, creating a photo friendly black ensemble is all about layering those textures! Here I’m wearing a mix of smooth black satin, glossy PVC, sheer nylon and suede leather.

The Romantic Starway Nightgown | A (Vintage) Lingerie Addict’s Diary

For someone with almost no downtime, I sure am obsessed with clothing designed for it. Lingerie and sleepwear in particular. The overt femininity of  their fluttering ruffles and tiny rosebuds makes me swoon.

But all this smooth satin and rustling lace spends far too much time in my wardrobe. So I’m starting a visual diary of my vintage and modern lingerie addiction. I hope you enjoy their prettiness as much as I do, and are inspired to bring your own rarely worn gems out of the closet!

white 5This Starway nightgown is a flowing gored design made of bri-nylon.  A  flower basket design delicately printed in the centre front blossoms with pastel lace daisies – a motif echoed in the fine floral lace defining the neckline and underbust seam. Soft ruffles frame the neckline, armholes and hem.

The gathered yoke bust allows for a comfortable fit on a range of bust sizes even on a size 6-8 nightgown.

While innocently white and modest in coverage this nightie is just translucent and clingy enough to maintain some romantic allure. (Which is kinda nice in a world of red crotchless panties and brazenly sexy babydolls).

Starway is a New Zealand made sleepwear brand. My sleuthing didn’t turn up any background info, so if you know anything please about the company please enlighten me!
