Bernie Dexter is a pin up model who has for modeled for several retro inspired clothing companies and lucky for us … Classic Hardware jewelry as well. Bernie is one of the most recognized pin up models in the rockabilly and retro pin up girl genre.
I first met Bernie years ago at a musicians benefit concert in August 2008. We had several mutual friends so it was nice to get to hang out and get to know each other better. I was familiar with her husband, Levi Dexter, of the band Levi and the Rockats from many years ago. He was a huge influence in the rockabilly music scene since the 1970s.
In the past few years Bernie has designed her own vintage inspired clothing line. The designs are adorable and we love that it is all American made! She has a great eye for patterns and design and has had great success on popular websites like Modcloth. Her designs are also sought out internationally, especially in England and Australia.
Bernie is a very personable, fun sweet gal and I really enjoy when I get to spend time with her. She has a huge fan following on Facebook where she is often posting new designs and pin ups shots mainly taken by her husband, Levi, who does a great job with the photography. They are a very adorable team!
