Miss Happ @ The Inner City Car show, Cape Town

Miss Happ had a stall at this first ever Inner City Car show. We also dressed and styled the gorgeous pin up promo gals on the day who were literally dressed from head to toe in our Miss Happ products and they looked just fab!

The Car show showcased an array of vintage cars from the 50 to the 70's, from Hot rods to muscle cars, so it really fitted in so well with what the Miss Happ style is all about.



We shared our gazebo with another stall holder, the sweet Miss Gabbi Katz from AnonaMiss Beauty Emporium who also did the amazing hair and make up for our promo girls too. The ladies got a ton of photo coverage which is a great way to get your brand out there.

And as always a gal can't pass up the perfect pinup opportunity....and to just have a little fun!

A big thanx to all that came to support us - we cannot wait for the next one.

What is Rockabilly style?

I get asked this often. "So what is this that you are doing?", "Why skulls?", "What's with the tattoos?" here goes..these are purely my a nutshell :)

Rockabilly has it true roots in the rock n’ roll culture of the 50’s, but today girls and guys around the world have taken it to a new level. The look is edgy with strong tattoo influences and is very visible within the alternative community. Many a Rockabilly guy and girl is tattooed which only highlights their need to be an individual - it's a way to stand out from the crowd and is very reminiscent of the rebellious attitudes of icons from the era such as James Dean, Elvis Prestly and the notorious Bettie Page amoung others..

In South Africa we are seeing the subculture slowly gaining popularity and awareness amongst the younger 20 – 30 something’s, and for many it’s a natural progression from other small, niche subcultures such as Goth or punk.
For the modern rockabilly guys and gals, …

What is pin up style?

Although the lines are not definite , there are a few little details to take note of here when looking at the pinup style....

The Pin Up style tends to be slightly more feminine when compared to the rockabilly style. This look is more vintage inspired with looks being very closely modeled on styles (mainly) from the 40’s and 50’s. For the Pin up style girls often revert back to vintage patterns to produce garments that are known as “vintage reproductions” circa 1950 as in our Miss Happ Vintage Dress (below), which was on original Vogue pattern from 1954.

Many girls who dress in the pin up style will go as far as wearing beautiful retro seamed stockings with suspenders and glamourous vintage inspired lingerie as seen at online at What Katie Did together with perfectly coiffed Hair and beautifully applied make up.

Compared to the rockabilly girls who have a very noticeable rebellious look about them with their tattooed bodies and bright hair, pin up girls have a softer, more feminine look,…
