Our first vintage Mom profile is of Claire Heistek,
mother of Annex Vintage owner Gen Heistek:
I was home this weekend for Easter and dug up some photos of my Mom in the mid 60's to early 70's. During this period, she was making most of her own clothes and she'd come up with some pretty unique numbers like this incredible mother/daughter set of matching mini dresses.
My Mom and Dad both worked at the NRC (National Research Council) as technicians in the mid-60's (I think this is where they met). This is my favourite photos of this era; it's a shot of her welding in one of those super-short micro mini skirts that were so popular at the time.
I have a vivid memories of this faux-fur coat hanging in the front closet years after she'd stopped wearing it.
These photos of my mom and dad look like they come from a tourist brochure! They were taken during their honeymoon in PEI
My mom in her wedding dresses.
I love this matching sweater/hat combo.
What a beautiful lady!
