It’s not surprising, since they’re located just 30 minutes away from the Los Angeles urban fashion scene. Designed by Janet Zuniga, her high quality pieces are constructed 100% in the USA. She began her line with a presence on Etsy, and Vintage Galeria has since expanded its online presence with a website and to small boutiques around the world.

What makes Janet’s designs recognizable to pinup and retro fashion aficionados is her use of vibrant Mexican folklore and hipster prints. Mexican art and rockabilly fashion go hand-in-hand, because of the presence of sugar skulls, bright colors and bold prints.

Dia de Los Muertos is a prominent Latino holiday and a big influence in urban neighborhoods in Los Angeles, so it makes sense that Janet incorporated the playful nature from her heritage into her vintage inspired fashion line.

Vintage Galeria dresses maintain the halter top, sweetheart necklines and cinched waistlines that represent retro fashion. The line of skirts come in a number of styles, including the classic pencil skirt and pleated swing skirt that emphasize a woman’s hourglass figure. An exciting addition to the line are the aprons, because they’re truly unique and bring pizazz into the kitchen. The collection of messenger bags, makeup bags and wallets are just as fun, too.

Independent labels don’t get enough credit in the fashion world, but when it comes to pinup and rockabilly style, these brands are an important source of inspiration. From brilliant images of the Virgen of Guadalupe to fun and flirty mustaches, floral and animal prints, the items in Vintage Galeria’s collection are a must-see for every rockabella. They’re refreshing from your typical concepts associated with vintage style, but the garments still embrace the figure-hugging silhouette from the 1950s we have all grown to love and cherish.
