The California-living vintage shop, THECALIVINTAGESHOP is a concept shop with aesthetic and practice of sustainability in mind that aimed to put fashion and creativity together through it's own handpicked vintage and rework/renewal collection. When you shop with THECALIVINTAGESHOP, you are supporting a small business, that runs and was founded by an Asian, Korean-born, California raised & based artisan/designer Yun Young Kwon, aka Eunice K. She describes herself as a integrative-creative thinker. It all began with her big passion in fashion, art, design, creating, and crafting. With this shop, her life-long dream turned into reality.
Journey of this shop began in 2018 by selling Eunice's handpicked vintage selections online, and the shop became TOP SELLER on the Depop platform. The initial focus was simple, to find and give a 2nd life as much as possible to those many timeless, classic pieces that already existed out there, but unloved such as blazers, shirts, denims and trousers. As progressed on, it was then when she realized the immense amount of potential that these already existing, but unloved garments, could be created into new unconventional collection with minimizing waste. This collection aims to produce daring, yet practical timeless creations based on her personal experience of emotions and interests in design. This collection specializes in transforming his unloved clothings into hers for modern women with the conscious mind.
That’s the story behind THECALIVINTAGESHOP and its CALIVINTAGEREWORK COLLECTION.
The mission at THECALIVINTAGESHOP is to focus on quality over quantity and the sustainability, to prolong a garments life as much as possible, while keeping stylish uniqueness taste through our creative rework and renewal production. Which production starts and ends in California. We will be constantly supporting circular fashion industry and local businesses. We will always prioritize in partnering with local independent designers, creatives, artisans and workers in needs of work in the future, if possible.
We hope all the calivintagelover’s to enjoy wearing pieces from thecalivintageshop and encourage you to recycle the garments, if possible, to try to re-wear and re-love them again and again..
With lots of love, xx
Eunice from THECALIVINTAGESHOP
