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.
