What is your name, and what is your job title at LANA-ROSE?
Hey there! My name is Lana Lunacy and my job here at Lana-Rose Fashion is being our Social media manager, in charge of all our social media pages, events and making the store look good visually! I also won the title of Psychobilly Queen in 2015 down in Melbourne (Photo attached) and currently performing Burlesque professionally in Ballarat and Melbourne.
Tell us more about Lana-Rose Fashion! When did you open and what’s changed since then?
We are a family owned and operated store, Inspired from the first time we tried on rockabilly clothing ourselves in 2010, We loved the style and culture so much, My mother Tracey (Owner and Manager) decided Ballarat needed a vintage inspired store to match the Heritage of the town. So on the 8th of August 2012, Lana-Rose Fashion was registered for business! Named after myself and my younger sister Rose. For the last 5 year we have seen our little town embrace its own history and celebrate with Festivals and weekend events all year round, men and women alike dressing more in the vintage inspired fashions day to day and our town is really being put on the map for all of this combined!
What did you do before LANA-ROSE?
I started my working career in retail, working for chain/department stores when I was younger, I worked at a Comic Book store for 3 years as well, a Teenage nerd’s dream! But I was lucky enough to come straight out of high school to be in the shop. I’ve also been in the performing arts from a young age, and now perform Burlesque professionally! Which absolutely goes hand and hand with the rockabilly culture.
What’s the best part about your job?
It’s always seeing the look on someone’s face when they try on something they instantly love. Whether it’s someone who is in the culture and finds the perfect dress or someone try the rockabilly fashion for the first time, I love seeing someone who finds an item that suits them to a T, making them happy and comfortable expressing themselves through fashion.
What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?
Oh my gosh, so, across the street from our shop on Lydiard street is a burger bar called ‘Griffin Burger’, They make The Best burgers in town! They name the burgers after pop culture references like ‘Djion Travolta’, They are delicious and such a temptation being so close to us.
What is the most important appliance in your home?
Probably my Hair Curler, I hate not having Drag Queen worth big hair every day!
Do you have any irrational fears?
I always fear a freak eyeball accident. I had Lasik eye surgery to not wear glasses anymore and now I fear flying scissors or tripping with a knife and ending up in such a position it would end up in my eyeballs. Or tripping with a glass cup and it is breaking and slamming it into my eyeballs. Eyeballs man, totally not irrational!
Do you like Sci-Fi movies?
Not to sound Australian But MATE, I love Sci-fi movies. My parents raised me on Star Wars, X-Files, Alien, Predator, Evil Dead, Plan 9 from Outer Space, But I have to say Mad Max Fury Road is my favourite. I was born in Broken Hill where the first Mad Max was filmed, Definitely holds a special place in my heart.
Have you ever ridden a camel?
No I haven’t, but I was in a production of ‘The Boy from Oz’ based on Peter Allen’s life, and for the finale’ of ‘Rio’, A camel was brought on stage with the cast In The Theatre!
What are you most excited about in the coming months? (Feel free to answer for yourself or for the shop )
