1926 Apparel

DSC_0256I met a gentleman named John Fondrisi at the Long Island City Flea when I visited his booth 1926 that had incredible antiques and apparel and we have been good friends ever since. Inspired by his grandfathers fashion illustrations in the 1920s, Fondrisi decided he would carry on his grandfathers legacy by utilizing his great works of art onto his apparel. Anyone who purchases his T-shirts, scarves, and hoodies become works of art and share a moment in history. Some of Fondrisi’s apparel even showcase vintage photos from the roaring era that fit the aesthetic of his brand. I have never met someone who has combined their antique business with an apparel line so perfectly. John and I connected right away and within just a few weeks, I was out in Connecticut modeling his designs for his new website. It was such a fun shoot and I got to meet so many great people, model with some RAD classic cars, and shot at some pretty cool locations. The photographer, Christopher Quinn, did such an amazing job and made me feel so comfortable. John and Chris make a great team and I adore them beyond words. Here are some of my favorite shots wearing 1926 apparel from our shoot together!
