My inspirations for this piece from Gigi’s Spring Collection were 1940’s women from World War 2
For the first time women were doing the mens’ jobs in factories, building planes and ships. Also, a new mode in fashion, sportswear was evolving and female designers like Clare McCardell were leading the way. Function and practicality became important. The Santa Paula Airport is known for its vintage airplane scene so I thought it was perfect to photograph Gigi in her overalls.
I made these overalls from dishtowel fabric and they are really durable.
