Since 2013, this German label has focused on providing its pinup and rockabella consumers with exclusive handmade clothing. Designer, Eva-Maria Geißer, is not new to the fashion industry, as Eve Couture is her follow-up label to Black Jewels Clothing, which she has successfully presented during Berlin Fashion Week.

In this line, Eva creates vintage inspired clothing, which is suited for everyday wear or a night out on the town. She deliberately manages a small and limited collection, guaranteeing rockabellas to add one-of-a-kind pieces to their already uniquely retro style wardrobe. From wildly designed form fitting mini dresses to quirky detailed hats, every item in this label is different from what you’d typically see in a vintage inspired clothing store.

Fashionable pinups will be drawn to the individualistic style of Eve Couture. The dresses, tops, sweaters, jackets and boleros are full of colorful animal prints, polka dots and stripes, and they allow the world to see a peek at your wild side.

While the pieces are feminine, they are sexy without looking trashy, but they’re not typical styles for your average girly girl. However, there are small elements any girl can appreciate, like sweet bows and purposefully detailed buttons.

The looks inspired in the Eve Couture line definitely fall within the fashion from the 1950s. Many of the styles are similar to steampunk fashion, while others are just the right amount of fantastical. You might even feel like a modern day Alice in Wonderland, which is a source of inspiration for many of today’s most fashion-forward collections. The stockings available are incredibly attractive and sensual, but note that these are not manufactured by Eva or her label.

As they say, “Good things come to those who wait.” Since each item is made-to-order, expect a three week interval from the time you place the order with Eve Couture and the finished product. Once the product has been shipped, Eva includes a two year warranty, which is a praiseworthy sign of her integrity as a retailer and high quality designer.

These three talented ladies attended the same design school and came up with their idea to sell retro spirited garments in 2011. The next year, they established their online store, and in 2013, they graced the city of Barcelona with their flagship store. Now they offer a range of Rockabilly and retro fashion for not only pinups but to men, kids and even babies, too!

The label’s garments are produced in an assortment of colors and recognizable vintage impressions, like polka dots, tropical prints and leopard prints. Sirens adore the hourglass silhouettes Cindy Bangs clothes create, since they’re complete with cinched waistlines and accented necklines. The skirts and dresses are either chic and form fitting or full and flirty.

Combine their figure flattering bottoms with one of the store’s gorgeous tops and one of their structured jackets or classic cardigans. The Cindy Bangs footwear collection is one of the most exciting parts of the store, because many of the shoes are unique.

While most of the designs are original and inspired by retro fashion, Cindy Bangs also offers men and women authentic vintage pieces and and other well-known industry brands. The designers will also work with you to produce a custom-made garment or accessory if you have a special occasion. It’s nice to have a shop attend to almost all your vintage loving needs!

The Cindy Bangs label has grown quite a bit in just a few short years. These designers use their excitement for pinup style and fashion from the 1950s as the focus for their collection.

They design and select their clothing and accessories with such passion, and it’s highly apparent they take this nostalgic aesthetic seriously and with love. We can’t wait to see how much more they grow and what they have in store for the future!

Peruse through their line of accessories, and you can match a feminine bow belt, rockabilly style headband or detailed bag or clutch perfectly with one of their dresses.

The modern day woman is truly who they have in mind with their garments. One problem that many women experience is finding clothing that fit well, and Vintage Me Up realizes this dilemma. The clothes they create are made for women of all shapes and sizes, and finding garments that flatter your figure, no matter what shape that might be, is a feat in itself. The store prides itself with its unique approach to their sizing system, and that is reflected in their products.

Another great reason why this store is exceptional is that they promote social awareness. Not only is each article of clothing is manufactured locally in their Los Angeles operation, but the store also utilizes 100% organic cotton for their dresses, and they source all the materials used in the United States.

They also safeguard their workers by treating them fairly and exposing them to the best working conditions possible. This socially conscious way of running their business is something Vintage Me Up takes seriously, and hopefully, inspires other retro and vintage inspired retailers to support their community as well.
