Having experienced the 70s and 80s first hand, I'm thrilled to see so much of contemporary design influenced by previous eras. Since I bring the vintage element to the table with my age, I currently enjoy wearing contemporary minimalist, monochromatic clothing. I often blend oversized items, menswear, and tailored pieces to create unique fashion-forward outfits. I'm committed to diversity and inclusivity so developing Velour to be a safe, welcoming place for people to explore their personal style is important to me. The public is still heavily bombarded by fashion magazine messaging saying: 'You have to fit this mould' and 'This is what you should look like.' I'm happy to say that we at Velour are making a conscious effort to celebrate differences and to changing the narrative.

I have always had a passion for clothing, styling, and reworking old vintage items to suit my style. In my personal wardrobe, I pair contemporary items with vintage pieces to give a unique spin on modern fashion. I am a big fan of blending 'high / low' fashion, nothing beats a pair of sneakers with a beautifully made vintage romper or dress. I am dedicated to educating customers on the environmental benefits of shopping preowned as well as the fun that can be had while exploring personal style. I enjoy showcasing our secondhand pieces and teaching our customers the wonders + uniqueness of secondhand clothing.
