With the popularity of shows like Mad Men, Masters of Sex, and most recently Agent Carter, the 1940s, ’50s, and ’60s aesthetic is seeing a renaissance in mainstream fashion. Renee DiDio, along with boudoir photographer Anna Patin, hosts the fledgling Brooklyn Pin Up School, held each month at Lucy La Riot studio on Lorimer Street, which Patin owns. Here, New York women can learn to imitate the Pin Up image, from her Victory Rolled hair to her lacy garters and thigh-highs. Started in November, the school’s got its next class scheduled for today, which features hair and makeup tutorials as well as wardrobe tips. And all “graduates” of the course will be able to take part in a special photo shoot.
