Diamonds and Feathers The Pin Up and Vintage Model Agency
Diamonds and Feathers - The Pin Up, Vintage and Retro Model Agency
All good things
I'm sad to announce that Diamonds and Feathers has reached that point where it no longer makes any sense to continue. Whilst there is still some paid modelling work around, increasingly companies know that they can get girls who are happy to work for free, or they can find models through the numerous portfolio sites or even social media and as such no longer rely on, nor book through a model agency such as this. It is also true that 'Pin up' is not as popular as it was a few years ago. It was good whilst it lasted and we thank all of our clients and anyone who has worked with our models. The site will be closing at the end of the month, our facebook page soon after that. We do hope to create a model directory on our Pinupzania site for anyone who is still wanting to work with a pin up model so keep an eye out there if you ever think you'll need a pin up model.

Warning - FAKE photographer.
It has come to our attention that a 'photographer' is contacting girls claiming to be conducting photoshoots for Diamonds & Feathers and then requesting that they send him 'nude' images - We do NOT conduct photoshoots for potential applicants and if we contacted anyone to invite them to apply we would simply point them to the 'apply' section of this site. This photographer is a FAKE and we are investigating to take action. But please do NOT send nude or topless images of yourself to anyone without being 100% sure they are who they say they are, nor take part in a 'skype' or webcam 'audition'

Just what is Pinup?
Simply speaking a pinup is a picture, usually of a female, that appeals to 'popular culture' and which is 'pinned up' somewhere, like a wall or locker door. The word 'pinup' entered popular language during World War II which is when commercial pinup posters started being produced but men have been sticking up pictures of sexy women since the late 1800s. It was particularly popular amongst British Forces during World War I, when the craze was for collecting and pinning up publicity postcards of actresses, singers and models of the day.
Today, pinup tends largely, to fall into two cateogories, there is 'modern' pinup which covers todays 'lad mags' and page 3 and the like, which tends to be more overtly sexual than 'retro' pinup which usually recreates a vintage style, 'cheescake' and which tends to portray a slightly innocent, but fun and sexy style, perhaps showing a flash of stocking top or underwear, rather than being too blatant. True 'Vintage' pinup covering the sale of original vintage prints and posters is also very popular at the moment with the strong interest in all things vintage.
So what is a Pin Up Model?
Simple, a girl who can look stunning and sexy in a photograph, and our models are all experienced pin up models, they know how to adopt a pin up pose, which is very different from conventional fashion. Many of them love vintage and pin up fashion and 'live' with the 'look' every day. Our girls don't fit into any simple single category, we have all shapes and sizes, we have professional catwalk models, burlesque performers, dancers, singers and dedicated pin up models. All though have that certain something and all have a sense of fun.
Diamonds & Feathers is an ethical pin up and vintage model agency that fully meets all required legislation and Department of Employment and Learning guidelines. We encourage prospective models to check the current guidelines before dealing with any agency. We do NOT charge any kind of upfront fees and are happy to answer any questions you might have.
