MACKENZIE THE MODEL #1

Everyone knows Billy MacKenzie was Dundee's most high profile pop star in the 80's. I think it's safe to say he was probably the nearest thing Dundee had to having a fashion model back then as well. He did wear a lot of cool gear, and he wasn't exactly camera shy!
He did of course know a bit about the subject, what with him owning his own fashion boutique, The Crypt, a shop that specialised in both vintage clothing & designer clothing. Not the kind of stuff found in your run-of-the-mill High Street stores.
Both of the above items are from 1982. The ad for his shop, and Billy posing inside. He seems to have chosen a 50's crooner look for this shot...although not in his footwear preference!

  1. Does anyone know if the wrought iron gate at the doorway of the Crypt, was saved by a souvenir hunter, or did it end up on the scrapheap?
