If you love the rockabilly look, but don't know much about its origins, then let us give you a little history lesson! The style was born from the unique Rockabilly sound (A blend of country and western and early rock 'n roll) popularised in the 1950's by musicians such as Elvis Presley, Bill Haley and Johnny Cash. These artists all had a very defined, distinct look and the fashion of the time was greatly influenced by this. The austere and conservative post-war look gave way to bold colours, prints and a rather more 'fun' approach to fashion. Female stars such as Bettie Page and Jayne Mansfield (Iconic pin-up girls of the period) championed the look, regularly sporting rockabilly cocktail dresses and other glamorous garb. In recent years, celebrities such as Amy Winehouse, Imelda May and even Gwen Stefani have sported rockabilly inspired looks, breaking the style out into the mainstream.
