Help the Miss Happ girls make it to Vegas so that we can take a little bit of Africa to the 2015 VIVA LAS VEGAS ROCKABILLY FASHION SHOW & CAR SHOW in LAS VEGAS, USA!

As one of only a handfull of clothing brands to be accepted onto the 2015 fashion show, MISS HAPP is the ONLY Rockabilly brand all the way from CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, and we NEED YOUR HELP to make our Rock n' Roll DREAMS COME TRUE!Miss Happ is the first ever South African (and African) Rockabilly clothing brand to showcase at this globally recognized festival with over 22 000 people from all over this great planet attending the event.

For the 2015 Fashion show Miss Happ will be taking a team of three lovely ladies to not only represent the brand on the catwalk but to also represent and promote a Rockabilly culture that is growing rapidly in South Africa to a truly international market.

Every Donation received will not only get a personalized Thank You from Mandy Miss Happ Milne, but a level specific gift from us to you to show how much we appreciate all the assistance!

Being a small self funded business, you can imagine how getting news like this was exciting and scary all at the same time. It's for this reason that we are asking for your donations towards this ONCE IN A LIFE TIME chance to showcase a LOCAL brand overseas, and also introduce the AMERICAN MARKET to a SOUTH AFRICAN ROCKABILLY BRAND. 

We are so excited to take on this challenge & welcome it with open arms. We say it's time to "Put on some red lipstick & live a little!"

We are looking for donations towards the following:

1. Airfare from Cape Town to Los Angeles
2. Accomodation in LA and Las Vegas
3. Car Hire: from LA to Vegas (and back)
4. Freight: getting our stock to LA
5. The Fashion Show & Car Show

Our A team includes the following colorful ladies:

1. Mandy (Miss Happ) Milne: Owner and designer at Miss Happ
2. The Blue Haired Betty: Miss Happ model & MUA
3. Little Harlequin: Miss Happ model

Today, Miss Happ takes all these classic influences and mixes them together with the aim of bringing their customers a product that embodies the modern Rockabilly and pin up clothing style for the girl with a desire to be an individual; one that isn't afraid to stand out in the crowd!

Miss Happ is designed and produced by local fashion designer Mandy Milne. Mandy worked her way up through the ranks in the South African commercial fashion industry over a period of 13 years. Then she made the huge leap to do what she has always been passionate about and started up a design and manufacturing business called Red Hot Blue. 

Under red Hot Blue she developed the Miss Happ brand and its much younger mens brand called Boot Hill. Red Hot Blue and Miss Happ proudly celebrated their 6th Birthday this year and continues to grow. Miss Happ prides itself in being the only authentic designed, produced, & distributed Rockabilly and Pinup clothing brand based in South Africa.

Miss Happ now distributes around the globe and has satisfied repeat clients from as far afield as Sweden, France, England, Australia, Germany and of course, USA, to mention a few.

All accessories are hand made and clothing is produced at the Miss Happ mini factory in Milnerton, Cape Town.

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.

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,…
