Cor Blimey! She’s a Blinder!

Set in 1919 England, with a story line centered on an Irish youth gang, it’s become a cult obsession.  It’s the show Peaky Blinders, in its fourth season on Netflix.

The show is undeniably male focused, as Thomas Shelby and the gang of Peaky men make up the Blinders.  Yet its the female characters that round out the story, and bring a fierce and strong set of voices.  In one of the most iconic scenes thus far, the women stroll arm-in-arm down the street in protest…adorned in absolutely stunning 1920’s clothing and jewels.

I’ve been obsessed with the show from the beginning, particularly the female fashion that evolves along with the show’s timeline.  Fueled by this obsession, Kylene Cleaver of Leave It To Me Photography and I set out to do a styled photo shoot inspired by the show.

With a cast of real people, genuine antique and period-accurate clothing and jewelry, and a setting and furniture to match, we recreated several scenes from the series and took creative liberty with others.  Sourcing for the vintage clothing and accessories came from a variety of places, including the Brimfield Antiques Show, Spake as a Child Vintage, and Briar Vintage.
