The vintage dealer

Meet Tessa, the vintage dealer.


I first met her on a shoot about 5 years ago, taking her portraits for a talent agency. She was wearing some amazing pieces from the 70’s. I knew I wanted to shoot a personal project with her some day but I had no idea I’ll have to wait for years.


Here’s her story: Tessa is a vintage fashion dealer, collector and stylist. According to her words, she would sell her soul for a 1920’s handbag or a touch of bakelite.


She’s the owner of @catchathief and @tessarickardnutritionist , also involved in @hitchcockvintage and @thevintageemporium .
