Angel has had a love & fascination with clothing her entire life. She grew up going to local thrift shops & garage sales on a weekly basis with her Mother. Not only did this fuel her love of vintage pieces and one-of-a-kind finds, but also her desire to restore their potential.
This inspired her to study fashion design in Los Angeles. & from there she worked for independent designers as well as designing for big retail companies.
By learning the ins and outs of mass production she chose to focus more on sustainability. With curating vintage she will help your wardrobe reduce its carbon footprint. Angel believes that just because something has a hole or a missing button doesn’t mean it belongs in a landfill.
That is why she founded SISU VINTAGE, to practice sustainability without sacrificing style.
