Classy Chassis Clothing at Vintage Hair Lounge

Classy Chassis Union Jack Dress in the window at Vintage Hair Lounge

Tonight this crowd stopping dress was taken down - it's been sold! In the short time mother and daughter duo Classy Chassis have been marking out a retail space at Vintage Hair Lounge in High Street, Southampton, friends of bettie here have been spoilt with continually changing window displays of fabulous fifties frocks. Barely a week away from Imelda May appearing at the Southampton Guildhall, our frock/make-up tribute to the rockin' star is still in situ and definitely worth a peek.

Before we actually met Sandy Johnson and Toni Carter, the talented pair responsible for these treats, their made to measure fifties designs were already gracing the forms of many a switched on retro gal. Thousands will have come across them and their eye catching outfits at retro events and classic car shows and currently, I can reveal, they are working on a sixties collection that will form part of our "Southampton Rock" mods and rockers photshoot event in the very near future. In support, Vintage Hair Lounge will soon be displaying our own take on beehives and Vidal Sassoon style asymmetric sixties cuts.... with black vinyl and pvc!

And it's not just frocks that Classy Chassis are best known for. Nifty retro accessories are part of the look too. Check out their fab hair flower and Bettie Page handbag that our model Maddy Hobbs took to her heart on this recent photoshoot we did!
