Pinup Girl Boutique was founded by CEO and Head Designer Laura Byrnes in 1997 with a rack of hand-sewn clothes in her living room. In 1999, PinupGirlClothing.com was launched and within a few short years became the web’s ultimate destination for original retro and vintage inspired clothing, shoes, and accessories. In recent years our brands have transcended any niche label and our line has become about fantastic design that creates effortless glamour, at a great price. Laura Byrnes’ design mission is to create Couture For Every Body – the highest quality apparel that fits better than anything you’ve ever experienced, designed to make you look and feel amazing. No matter your body type, you deserve gorgeous, quality clothes made ethically at affordable prices. This is not fast fashion – this is good fashion.
Pinup Girl Boutique is the first company to do more than pay lip service to the idea that beauty is not a size, shape, color or age. Their website offers stunning editorial photography by Laura Byrnes and her team of talented photographers featuring models from size Extra Small to 4X to showcase their designs. They rarely hire agency models, preferring to feature customers as models for their designs instead. They have showcased customers as models on their website since their first ever photo shoot in 1999.
Pinup Girl Boutique is collaborative. Laura Byrnes freely admits to trying to turn Pinup Girl Clothing into an artists collective. While doing so completely would probably be bad for the company, they do as much as they can get away with, collaborating with artists such as Mary Blair, Evan Dorkin, Stephanie Buscema, Terry Runyan, and others on fabric designs, and with actors and creatives such as Traci Lords and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark on capsule collections. Employees from any department in the company can and have contributed design ideas, and they have developed fabric and style ideas contributed by their customers as well. This has meant that Pinup Girl Clothing is a community, as well as a company. It is not and will never be about one designer’s ego. In the words of John Irving, “Life is serious, but art is fun!”
And, about community. Their private Facebook group, the Pinup Girl Clothing Lounge, is an active, lively forum where customers, models, brand and art collaborators hang out, share Outfits of the Day, ask questions, and trade lots of GIFs and cat photos. They should really disclose that, because there’s a lot. They have a blast in there, so join them!
They believe in hassle free, personalized service, delivered with sincerity and respect. They’re there for you when they’re just hanging out having fun in the Lounge or on social media, and thry’re here for you when there is an issue. You’ll receive the same attention and care to your concern as you would to any other interaction with us. They look forward to working with you <3
