Biker Beauty is a clothing line inspired by strong women, tattoos and motorcycles. In a narrow market where clothing choices for women riders are limited, Biker Beauty is a new, trending apparel company that is gaining popularity amongst the female and even male motorcycling crowd, no matter what they rie!
Ranessa Villalba, founder of Biker Beauty clothing, found her calling six years ago after her knack for creating unique and fresh designs was discovered through a shirt she printed and sold at a swap meet. The shirt coined the phrase “Make-up, Men & Motorcycles.”
It became so popular, she printed more shirts with this phrase and they sold out a week after. This inspired her to create the Biker Beauty clothing line and she’s steadily been creating new apparel designs since. You can find Ranessa representing Biker Beauty at local bike nights and events, mainly to show that sexy women ride bikes too! “I started riding about 12 years ago and us ‘biker chicks’ were always known as butch chicks. So it was a way of showing everyone that we can ride and still be beautiful,” she says.
Ranessa is known for her ability to create edgy, sexy designs for women who ride, much of which have “women power” themes blended with day of the dead and urban ink undertones supported by powerful, contagious anecdotes or sayings.
Biker Beauty’s best seller to date was a shirt that boasted the phrase “I ❤ Badass Boys, Badass Bikes, Badass Tattoos.” The shirt sold out fast and since then, there have been no re-prints. “It’s kind of like a limited edition,” Ranessa says. “The only design that has been reprinted is ‘Make-up, Men & motorcycles.’” With these shirts being rare and only available through Ranessa’s website, this makes her apparel lucrative and sought after in person.
Biker Beauty is still growing with every design Ranessa prints to a shirt. Who knows? In five years, you may see Biker Beauty clothing in a boutique style store. For the time being, it can be found through Ranessa’s online store, www.bikerbeautyclothing.com, or by purchasing directly through Ranessa if you happen to see her out and about.
Ranessa is also a proud supporter of Breast Cancer awareness and she hopes to create a non-profit organization through Biker Beauty to help the families of those afflicted by cancer. Additionally, Ranessa uses Biker Beauty to support local bike clubs and can be found at many of their events and fundraisers as well.
I recently obtained Biker Beauty’s most recent popular item, the “Viva La Mujer” hoodie. The “Viva La Mujer” design features a beautiful woman with purple flowers throughout her wavy, black hair and her face is painted in sugar skull make-up. The phrase “Viva La Mujer” is laced beneath her in cursive font. The sweater is made from 100 percent cotton and is comfortable, warm and comfy. It is the perfect garment to add to your wardrobe this winter if you’re a woman, a bike lover, a man lover, a tattoo lover, hell a lover of anything that would empower a woman to say, “Give me more!”
As a fan of all things tattoos and Dia de los Muertos themed, this hoodie won me over before ever trying it on. “I chose this design because ‘Viva La Mujer’ is a strong woman,” Ranessa says. “In our bike scene, women aren’t recognized as they should be. We are in a male dominated sport. ‘Viva La Mujer’ is my way of saying, ‘We are here, we are riding and we won’t stop! Women ride and we ride in heels! We’re a force to be reckoned with!”
You can purchase the Viva La Mujer hoodie as well as other apparel and accessories with many other cool designs at the Biker Beauty online store.
