Theme: Twee Fashion

Twee means "excessively quaint, pretty, or sentimental".  Staples of twee fashion include ballet flats, Mary Jane's and loafers, skirts, cardigans, overalls, raincoats, patterned tights, shift dresses, satchels and Peter Pan collars. Twee became iconic in the late 00's and early 2010's with help from movies like Moonrise Kingdom, 500 Days of Summer, and Juno. For wardrobe inspiration, search "Twee Fashion" on Pintrest, share stories on Instagram, or stop by Labels Reno.  Portrait slams celebrate diversity, self-expression, style, individuality and creativity. Let us know if you have questions about our theme and, as always, don't be afraid to get weird.


Please arrive dressed in theme and ready to shoot. A twee fashion inspired wardrobe will be provided on location by Labels Reno for you to incorporate into your look (optional), beginning at 3pm - please don't miss this! A prize will be awarded to the model who rocks Label Reno's wardrobe with the most creativity and style. Wearable floral artistry will be provided by Carson Valley Florist. Please try to arrive by 3:30pm. Check in, explore the space for inspiring portrait locations, meet other creatives, and browse wardrobe before introductions begin at 4pm. We begin each slam by paring everyone up. Please be prepared to work with many different photographers in quick 10 minute sessions.
