I recently had the opportunity to photograph a few gowns designed by Newcastle fashion designer Katie Maree. The location for the shoot was the Regent Theatre, Islington.
Opened in 1928, the Regent Islington was built around the much older “Herbert’s Theatre”. The Regent Islington closed in 1964 and was used for storage until it was converted into a supply store for builders and renovators. Although probably the quintessential “picture palace” in its heyday, the Regent is now a kitchen cabinetry business. The years have not been kind to this grand old building, but thankfully much of the interior remains.
It’s distressed, peeling paint, highly detailed walls and dusty timber floors made the perfect spot for our Newcastle fashion shoot and showcase Katie Maree Designs gowns!
