Miss Amber Louise Talks Her Story
I never knew where I fit in when I was young. My style slowly evolved from scene kid to a mixture of vintage and alternative. I grew up in a small town so there wasn’t really anyone who dressed this way, I thought I was totally alone.
When I was introduced to Psychobilly music, I was instantly hooked! I remember seeing all these pictures of people online that looked like me, It was like I finally found where I belonged.
I remember attending my first Psychobilly gig, seeing all the people dressed in this dark, punk, 50s aesthetic. I fell in love with both the music and fashion. Creepers are definitely a staple piece for Rockabilly and Psychobilly fashion. My favourite creepers are the TUK leopard print range, Adding that punk edge to a classic creeper.
I first discovered creepers when they became mainstream (for a few months) in 2012. I got a pair of unbranded creepers from a high street store and lived in them. I remember when everyone stopped wearing them, but I didn't want to stop, they were a fashion trend to everyone else but I just fell in love with the style. When they stopped selling them in shops I started looking online that's when I discovered T.U.K. creepers and I couldn't believe it! A brand that had so many different styles, patterns and colours of my favourite style of shoe. I've been obsessed with T.U.K. ever since!
