DFX Does Rockabilly

Such a distinctive style, Rockabilly, which is a mix of Rock and Roll and Hill-billy, gives you a feisty fun look.

Alternative Fashion has many different branches, Rockabilly being just one. Although a small branch on the Alternative tree it can have a huge impact on the way you look and feel.

Rockabilly first came about in the 1950’s, and whilst it is still embraced by many, it does go under the radar in mainstream culture. This style is currently making a great comeback, with the likes of Diablo Rose and Bernie Dexter championing the style.
