Miss Fortune Clothing
Miss Fortune Clothing is a UK-based one woman shop founded by zombie momma Laura Brandreth, who rose from her undead pillaging in 2005 and began to sell her handmade the psychobilly, rockabilly, post-punk rock and roll clothing online.
A student of fashion technology, Laura finished her studies in 2007 with an outstanding achievement award and began receiving so many orders for her clothing from England, France, New Zealand and the United States that she opened her own office and began to have her designs made by an outside manufacturer in the UK.
Always looking for new ideas, Laura gets her rockabilly and psychobilly-styled inspiration from all over the map; 1940s and 1950s fashion photos, music like the Stray Cats or the Meteors and simply imagining up individual and flattering designs for friends or random people she sees on the street.
She applies her unique combination of fabrics and patterns to the classic 1930s, 1940s and 1950s styles of wasp-waist dresses, pencil skirts, sailor-styled sets and form-fitting clothing to create hotter-than-hot, hella-fun styles. Using nautical themes, Hawaiian patterns and styles plus classic pin up and re-vamped, western styles, Miss Fortune Clothing mixes unexpected fabrics and colors with well-known lines and designs. You will find classic polka dots, red cherries and Hawaiian flower prints plus pink hot-rod hearses, tattoo flashes, skulls and contemporary solid colors.
Taking advantage of stretch denim and other movement-friendly fabrics, Miss Fortune Clothing’s Ashleen Dress is a dungaree-style halter neck frock that goes with separate gingham gypsy tops and hugs every curve without restricting movement. The Aloha Hunny Range combines Hawaiian-inspired patterns and shirt styles with asymmetrical lines form-fitting femininity while the Nautical Nancy range is all adorable red, navy and white knitwear with anchor, rope and skull details. Greaser shirts, sleeveless hellbilly shirts plus Mexican Day of the Dead T-shirts are also available for all those psychobilly guys out there.
Miss Fortune Clothing’s prices are quite reasonable, ranging from £28.00 to £48.00, and they have an up-to-date sale page with great deals. They take regular and wholesale orders, and ship within all of Europe, as well as The United States, New Zealand and Australia.
Collectif is considered one of the hottest brands in UK pin up, rockabilly, and psychobilly fashions. Collectif’s pieces are generally very versatile; many of their pieces could be worn both as a traditional 40′s-50′s style or turned into a harder punk-themed look.
The brand is becoming increasingly popular worldwide and their clothing is sold by several major alternative retailers, including Pinup Girl Clothing. Collectif’s website features high-fashion photography and an adorable, easy-to-navigate layout. The brand’s models all have a definite edge; you’ll see pink-haired girls posing on sinks and tattooed beauties perched on motorcycles. However, Collectif Clothing excels at making each piece distinctly feminine without looking frail or delicate. Even their girly flared dresses feature bold patterns and eye-catching design. No matter if you’re a psychobilly, rockabilly, or a modern-day pinup, Collectif is not for the faint of heart.
The brand definitely designs for curvy women. Sizes start at a UK 8 (a US 6 and an EU 36)–no skinny fashion models here. However, Collectif is unafraid to design for larger women; available sizes go up to size 22 (a US 20 and an EU 52). The company’s fitted dresses are undeniably sexy and designed to highlight any figure’s curves. The website allows customers to browse dresses by print and available options include dogstooth, cherry, and polka dot. Not a dress fan? The site offers a variety of separates such as cardigans, pencil skirts, and a wealth of tops. The company also sells knitwear and outerwear. The accessories collection contains a few select items in each category, some of which include handbags, belts, petticoats, and buckles. Eclectic shoppers should definitely check out the Hair Candy collection where girls can purchase everything from meat cleavers to giant feathered birds for their hair. Additionally, the Sale section features a wide variety of discounted items.
Collectif fans can use the site’s Wish List feature as a helpful gift-giving hint for family members or significant others. Customers can also sign up for the emailed newsletter or visit Collectif’s MySpace page that sometimes features exclusive offers or promotions. UK residents can also visit one of Collectif’s two stores, one in Covent Garden and one in Camden. The company also offers wholesale sales on orders over two hundred dollars.
Dismantled Fashions is a one-woman brand and company operating out of Central Virginia in the United States. Emily, the founder, designer, fabricator, webmaster and promoter of Dismantled Fashions founded it in 2004 and specializes in designing and sewing clothing with classic 1940s and 1950s styles with an added twist of modern rockabilly and psychobilly trash.
Vintage with a hard edge, Dismantled Fashions sells dresses, skirts and bolero shrugs in a few classic pin up and rockabilly styles with a strong emphasis on customization. Polka dots, tattoos flashes, cherries, skulls, skeletons and stretched twill are just a few of the fabric options that can be mixed and matched with lace, buttons and other notions on any dress, skirt or shrug design available at Dismantled Fashions.
To make each piece a success, Emily asks that her adored customers measure themselves carefully using the comprehensive sizing chart on her website so that every curve can be perfectly enhanced by their custom purchase.
Emily learned to sew from her mother and from her own resourcefulness; her business, marketing and design skills were acquired from a couple of semesters in community college. Not one to stay in school or hold down a corporate job, Emily’s DIY attitude is as punk rock as her zombie momma, cheap-whiskey-drinking lifestyle and the sassy, curvy clothes she designs.
An enterprising Aries, Emily became interested in rockabilly clothing originally because, as she put it,” It’s damn flattering on us big girls!”, and started selling her handmade designs on Ebay after listing a pencil skirt she had sewn for herself that came out too small. It sold, she was inspired and continued to make and sell clothing on Ebay until she was able to create her own online shop in 2004. Now she not only sells directly from her website, but also has an etsy shop, a facebook fan page and sells clothes in selected retail stores.
Exceptionally reasonable, Dismantled Fashions’ hand-sewn custom dresses are only $55.00 at their highest price, whereas custom skirts are about $40.00 and shrugs run from $15.00 to $25.00. She ships everywhere via USPS, with free shipping on orders over $100. Because of the personalization of each item, returns are not accepted and exchanges are limited.
