Our founder Allison Vicenzi talking shop with Patagonia's founder Yvon Chouinard in the early days of creating VICENZI. November 2016 in Ventura, CA.
VICENZI is an independent fashion label designing and producing fine women's apparel in New York City. We communicate our beliefs through foundation garments with a focus on fit, fabrics, and quality.
These pieces are meant for you to make your own.
Our Blazer Nº1 is the idealist blend of sustainability, luxury, and utility — a modern vintage piece designed with the finest natural materials for ladies with style, substance, and the right touch of pizzazz.
The goal with this first garment was to provide you a tailored masterpiece at a fraction of the investment of bespoke or traditional luxury retail. Follow along and help us decide which products we will make next.
VICENZI exists to create high-quality products and high-quality jobs. It is that simple; we believe that is enough. Our team is driven by originality and a zest for life.
Founder and designer Allison Vicenzi decided to focus her career on minimizing waste, stirring creativity within communities, and making sustainable wardrobes a near-term reality for a variety of budgets and tastes. While developing Blazer Nº1, she spent over two years without buying new things to uncover and share stylish and affordable alternatives to mainstream fast fashion. #NoNewStuff lives on as a way to challenge industry standards, question what we really need, and reclaim fashion on our own terms.
The list of humans keeping VICENZI running is lengthy and continues to grow each day. This site will be updated frequently to share stories and gratitude.
