I've just rummaged around the archive and came up with this little beauty. It was taken on the set of a TV show from the late 80's called Hanney which starred Robert Powell. Yes, he was as gorgeous as he looked on screen, although I may have been a little punch drunk as I had just come off a 12 hour night shoot of Jack the ripper where I spent hours getting Killed. Oh the Glamour! It was taken at Hoxton Hall in the east end of London one of the few remaining original music halls remaining, I once had the pleasure of singing music hall there and my grandfather was a gallery boy there back in the day. It's funny How history repeats itself. Under the lovely line of the coat hides 3 different corsets, an Edwardian 's' bend, another that goes over the bust and then something that strapped on over the backside to give the weird 'S' bend shape. At least they held be upright while I was gently sliding into sleep halfway through the shoot!
