Rebel Tart is a St. Louis based fashion label designed by Cindy Henry. Launched in September of 2010, Rebel Tart’s signature style is inspired by Pin Up, 1950s swank nightlife, and rebellious musical icons from the latter part of the 20th century: Blondie, Joan Jett, and Cyndi Lauper.
Rebel Tart is often described as Pin Up meets New Wave or Bettie Page meets Cyndi Lauper. Rebel Tart uses both new and recycled textiles to create exclusive, limited quantity clothing that appeals to the modern day eclectic woman.
By mixing bold patterns with a bright color palette, Rebel Tart garments stand out amongst the crowd. This edgy, unique label is built on a foundation of polka dots, animal print, ruffles, chains, and bows. Future collections will focus on keeping within the signature look this fierce line was founded on, but will be refreshed with new prints, silhouettes and styles.
Rebel Tart compares its distinctiveness to that of musicians who retain their signature identity while incorporating new sounds to create familiar yet progressive music. When you hear a Rolling Stones song, there’s no mistaking that it’s the Stones. Rebel Tart aims to progress in the same manner, so that new collections are instantly recognized as Rebel Tart creations that offer something new and exciting simultaneously.
Rebel Tart is more than just a line of clothing; it’s an “Experience”.
