Interview With Rose van Thorne
Every Rose Has It's Rose van Thorne
Classic pinup has become a huge phenomena lately, what about it first captured your interest?
I've been a swing dancer since 1999, and fell into the whole vintage scene back then. I went thrift shopping and acquired some swing dancing outfits and got into the whole style and scene. I got into modeling seriously again in 2007 and saw a lot of pinup shoots taking place. I naturally gravitated to the pinup style shoots as I already had acquired a lot of vintage clothing from my swing dancing days.
What do you think about pinup becoming part of the mainstream culture?
I am very happy to see that it has become so mainstream because then the items are more readily available in the stores and the style gets more exposure. It's also great to meet so many other people that are also interested in the style.
What is it that excites you about pinup modeling?
I love the old school retro feel and the glamour behind it. I like being creative and putting props and themes together and making it look authentic. It's fun to get all dolled up and put on seamed stockings, high heels, corsets, pencil skirts, swing dresses, red lips, black pencil eyeliner, hair flowers, etc. and do classy poses. I also like getting into the character and creating a fun persona.
Are there any other creative mediums you work in?
I am a model, a photographer, a designer and a dancer. I love doing wardrobe styling for my shoots. I am an avid thrift shopper, and have tons of wardrobe and props. I also love to dance and create dance steps. I dance Argentine tango, swing, ballroom, tap, ballet and salsa.
What are your favorite types of outfits to model in?
I like corsets, dresses, skirts, high heels, stockings, and all pinup/retro, goth and high fashion clothing. My favorite types of modeling are high fashion and pinup.
What are your least favorites?
I basically love all kinds of clothing as long as it is flattering and has a nice shape or fit to it. I don't usually like baggy clothing or something that looks boring or doesn't have much style to it.
What kind of music do you like?
I like a little bit of anything; especially anything I can dance to.
Rockabilly, swing, salsa, tango, ballroom, rock, metal, classical, oldies, pop, rock n' roll, world music, etc. Some of my favorite bands/artists are: VNV Nation, Covenant, Wolsheim, The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Andrews Sisters, Elvis, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue, Rev. Horton Heat, Duke Ellington, Roy Orbison, Astor Piazzolla, Osvaldo Pugliese, and Juan d'Arienzo.
What do you like to do for fun?
I love to go hiking, dancing, clubbing, and shopping for vintage clothing. I also love traveling and exploring new places, and I love checking out new events.
