Miss Happ's First runway show was a BLAST!

We had a fantastic evening showing off what we have all been so hard at work at over the last few weeks. Thank you to all our clients and fans that came to support us as well as our friends and family. We all had so much fun and do hope you look forward to seeing the new range in stores!

I just want to say a massive Thank You to all the wonderful people that supported our fashion show on Wednesday night and most importantly to all the behind the scene people that made our show as successful as it was:

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..

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.

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,…
