Upcoming Photo Shoot at Amendment 18

 Hey Viv ! has been asked to bring some our most charming fashions to a photo shoot at Amendment 18, Staten Island’s newest Speakeasy Bar.

At the shoot, Photographer Jeff Mason will capture the beautiful Leanne Surace and Nancy Corrigan, both singers at the club, posed in the period ambiance of Amendment 18. Think smoky back room, a fitted pencil dress and veiled hats.

Watch our social media for the pictures as Hey Viv ! Retro goes to Amendment 18 !

Behind the Scenes at Hub 17 Photo Shoot


Rachel, Katrina, and Viv

“Clash of the Decades” Photo Shoot by Hey Viv ! at Hub 17

We recently invited Hey Viv customers to a spontaneous photo shoot fashion show at Hub 17 Gallery with photographer Ken Graham of Kenneth Paul Media. We put out racks of Hey Viv ! clothing from the 50’s to the 90’s and encouraged everyone to have fun creating their own look.  We’ve been posting the pictures on our HeyVivRetro instagram account so check them out.

And here’s the behind the scenes team that helped pull it off.  Rachel (in the picture above, on the left) was in charge of coordinating the clothing and props and making sure it all ran smoothly. She worked the racks and helped people pick out what they wanted to wear.   Katrina (in the middle) brought her fun and funky spirit and cool shoe collection. Katrina was good at adding just the right accessory to the right person.   She made sure everyone felt welcome and tried on something new.   And Viv (on the right) was the ‘in house’ cheerleader for the posing and picture taking part.  It’s not easy to get in front of the camera when you’re not used to it so Viv made everyone laugh and relax so they all showed “their good side” to the photographer.

Here’s our patient and creative photographer, Ken Graham of Kenneth Paul Media  He put everyone at ease and made the Photo Shoot fun and relaxing.  We love working with him !


Erin Kelli

And lest we forget – who was that wacky spirit that helped this idea grow and come to fruition ?  Yes, it’s Erin Kelli – artist, producer, free spirit and all around ‘get it done’ gal.  Erin was in charge of graphics and promotion.  She also brought lots of friends to the shoot and got everyone psyched !  Thanks Erin – you look great in everything !
