Rockabilly inspiriation

Several people have said that my work looked very 'rockabilly', so I decided I would look further into this trend. I'm not sure whether I would design my prints for this market, but I do like looking at it for inspiration.

I love these photographs by Steven Miesel for a 2007 edition of Vogue Italia, as they combine a sense of higher class and elegant beauty with the more retro rockabilly style. I also think it would be interesting to look at fake tattoo sleeves or clothing, as it is something that has often slid into more high end fashion. I think they can sometimes look quite tacky, but these leggings below by 'Wild Rose' are a slightly more understated version.
