cynthia-vincent-headshot_bw-copyDesigner Cynthia Vincent, a unaccepted black of boho chic, has cut a uninformed conformation for herself. An early force behind a tag Vince, she also spent 12 years helming her possess company, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, before relocating on to consulting. She has collaborated with dual O.C. brands, has a hotly expected home line in a works, and another partnership that involves city pride-inspired gifts.

Your new projects came out of a formidable time. Twelfth Street was sole in 2015 and a investment organisation brought in a new team. Was there a china lining?

My new consulting firm! we shaped it given a lot of companies indispensable answers given (the fashion) business has altered so much. One customer wanted artistic direction, another wanted tone and imitation direction, and one only wanted assistance wise garments.
One customer was Garden Grove-based Three Dots, where we came in as a consultant though took on a purpose of proxy artistic director.

My aim was to broach some-more conform to a brand. we went by a repository and focused on head-to-toe weave dressing, given it’s a core of a association (knit dresses, velvet camisoles, sweaters with shoulder cut‑outs). It was also about reintroducing that T-shirt to a whole generation, like today’s character bloggers. we sent T-shirts to bloggers who weren’t informed with it and only said, “Hey, let us know what we think.” And a response was amazing.

You also collaborated with O’Neill final year for a roller brand’s 60th anniversary, infusing a line with spacious caftans and soppy suits with floral artwork. Is it wily introducing conform to an movement sportswear company?

No! That group was so on it, and they knew their fashion. They aren’t only a sports company. They’re so well‑prepared.

Tell us some-more about your home line.

It’s called Home Away, and it launches in spring. I’m operative with artisans from around a universe to emanate all from tabletop pieces to metalwork, home fragrance, and most more.

You’re collaborating with Sisters of Los Angeles (SoLA), a city pridelifestyle brand. Will we see Orange
County products?

Definitely. we am looking to move my independent suggestion to a line with new totes, candles, matches, and more, from a Laguna- and Newport Beach‑branded collections to a “714” rocks glasses. Now, some-more than ever, we need positivity and light, and in a tiny approach this fun partnership brings that to people.

What inspires a conform engineer to launch a home collection?

I wanted to emanate things that we adore and that we have always wanted to daub into though never fit into a contemporary wardrobe model.

Do we have a pattern ethos?

Whether I’m conceptualizing garments or home products, my criteria is thatI wish it to have a durability value, and that’s something I’m unapproachable of with my clothing. we hear from a lot of people who still have a special dress or pieceof cave (from Twelfth Street) that they’ve had for years.

Where can we find your home line and city honour items?

A’maree’s, for a home line, and a city honour partnership will be during Yolk Laguna Beach.
