This week for the blog we dove into the Wendy Makin archives and pulled out some gold to share with you all! Hidden in the back of the bustling Brisbane Wendy Makin workshop are rows of gorgeous vintage Wendy Makin gowns. Heading down there Monday afternoon I was overwhelmed with choice. Sequins, tulles, sparkles and stunning fabrics were bursting from the racks. Unfortunately we couldn’t photograph them all, so in addition to the gowns, we’ve also included some amazing shots from the beginning of Wendy Makin Designs in 1993, as well as some classic magazine covers and photo shoots. Enjoy!
