Miss Hussy Clothing
Miss Hussy Clothing was established and created by Hayley Stoneham in Adelaide, Australia, where she studied fashion and business management. Her largest fan was her grandmother, who worked as a tailor in a department store in the 1940’s. Her mother is her main source of inspiration, with whom she shares a passion for everything vintage and retro.
Hayley began selling the Miss Hussy Clothing line on Ebay, and after a great deal of success, began selling the label on a Myspace fan page she created for the clothing line as a store front. She moved to Melbourne, Australia, and began producing her clothing designs in large quantities so she could begin marketing Miss Hussy as a professional label. She began selling her pieces in Las Vegas, Nevada and even lived there for some time, but the true roots of the brand remain in her home country of Australia. To this day, the clothing pieces are still manufactured in Australia.
Hayley’s love for vintage style and clothing of the 1950’s came about due in part to the fact that the clothing from that era embraced curves and women of various sizes, and since she claims to have never been entirely thin, felt more comfortable in these styles. She creates pieces that look as if they came directly out of a clothing catalog from the pinup and retro era’s, and enjoys creating colorful dresses, swinging skirts, pencil skirts, stylish and form fitting tops, and plenty of retro embellishments. She also garnered inspiration from her mother’s closet, using the ideas and pieces to create a similar style that is fresh, young and lively. Old Hollywood films are another popular piece of inspiration for Miss Hussy Clothing.
Hayley continues to draw inspiration from retro era’s to create pieces that are beautiful, high quality and embellished with retro and vintage looking patterns and buttons. Whether it be polka dots, leopard print, floral prints or the classic pinup sailor look, quality clothing is the main priority of Hayley as she creates Miss Hussy Clothing. She continues to develop more pieces for online shops, and offers them at affordable Australian prices that range from 65 to 130 dollars.
