Hi! We are LOLITA VINTAGE CLOTHING!
Who we Are & What we Do: Vintage clothing and refashioned/redesigned clothing business with a focus on upcycling and recycling goods. We Also make original design accessories out of vintage fabrics, jewelry & such.
I am always seeking new faces so if you are a model in the Bay Area, CA and interested, please email me. Also love to do TFP with Photographers and always interested in editorial projects!
Some questions I can answer for you:
Do you loan out clothing?
-Yes we do! We have done loans to photographers and models who wish to have a new look or a good variety of clothing and accessories. You must live/work in the Northern California Area and must be able and willing to return the items within 3 days - 1 week. We also ask that you sign a contract stating you will care for and return the clothing in good condition. Sorry we do not give free sample clothing, we just can't afford to....yet!
Do you charge for loaning your items?
-In most cases no. We like to do TFP (trade for photos) so that all parties benefit. You benefit as a photographer and model because you have a new variety to choose from, without having to go shopping for items that you might not use again. We benefit by being able to have an array of fashion photos to use for our promos and website! We of course are selective about loaning and it must be a situation where all parties would benefit from a TFP situation. We like an edgy or high fashion look, and that's what we have been doing for our TFP contracts. A commercial look will probably not suit us, but we are always open to ideas, so don't be afraid to ask.
Are you looking for models at this time?
-YES!!! We are always seeking out a good face to represent our clothing. We would like to be shooting 1 -2 times per month if possible. Each shoot lasts about 2-3 hours. You will get CD of ALL your raw images. You can use them for anything you like as long as the photo credits are posted. You will also get an edited version of the phots later in 450px wide format.
What type of Models are you looking for?
- We prefer someone at least 5' 4" or taller and a size 0 - 4 if possible as our clothing is usually on the smaller side. We prefer an edgy or high fashion look. If you know how to do you own makeup and hair well, that is a plus! We don't mind tattoos, piercings are fine, as long as face piercings can be removed if necessary and tattoos are tasteful (e.g. no jailhouse tattoos or faded homemade tattoos of a Merlin and Pegasus on your chest). We are looking for any ethnicity or look, as long as you can pose and make our clothing look fantastic!
