about Miss Lulu
UPDATE JANUARY 2013 The Miss Lulu Pin Up Parlour boutique has closed but you can still find Miss Lulu fashion online or at markets. Keep in touch via online channels.
Miss Lulu is a very modern day take on the 1950s and Rockabilly; kitsch California, retro treasures, American pump & diners, vintage cars and old school tattoo art inspires the designs, fabrics and colour combinations of Miss Lulu’s seasonal collections. The summer collection, “Miss Kitsch”, is all about tiki retro and nautical prints. The best thing about it is you can wear pieces anywhere, anytime and dress them up or down.
The shop is designed to capture the essence of all my retro 50’s inspirations in one destination.Miss Lulu’s Pin Up clothing parlour will feature pin up art work, pink flamingos, cheeky treasures and furniture plus my signature rockabilly check flooring. You’ll also love the double change room area featuring fake grass flooring and retro salon doors!
ABOUT MISS LULU
My name is Brianna Brent- Owner/designer of Miss Lulu. Miss Lulu is a 50’s inspired clothing label for modern day pin ups and rockabilly dolls. After completing three formal years of Fashion Design and clothing production at Newcastle TAFE, I launched my first collection in 2007 as a self funded and driven label.
I design and produce two collections a year as well as indent trans-seasonal pieces. Each design is pattern made, graded, cut, sampled and marketed in house, and made available directly to customers at selected markets or Miss Lulu’s online shop.
My dedication to the quality of construction, flattering fits and cheeky fabrics, is what keeps Miss Lulu customers coming back for more! All fabrics are personally washed and pre-shrunk in house also, the key to long lasting garments that will not twist or shrink.
Due to growing customer demands over the last two years, selected pieces are manufactured with exclusivity through an ethical Australian production house in Sydney.
