Hello there Vintage Queens,
My name is Sumeia. I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little about myself and how I began selling vintage.
I have loved fashion for as long as I can remember. My Mum and Aunts would have influenced this a lot. I devoured fashion magazines throughout my teens but never thought I could work in fashion as a career. It seemed very far away from where I lived in the South of rural Ireland.
I moved to Dublin in 2004 after completing a Business and Marketing BA. I tried a few different industries and was soon attracted to where my heart belongs - FASHION. I began working in a popular fashion boutique in the city where models and fashion lovers would come to find cool, unique jewelry and fashion pieces. It was started and run by three very glamourous & hard working sisters. I met some great people working there and learned so much.
From there I moved to working for one of the most famous luxury houses in the world. Chanel. I worked as a Fashion Consultant and Supervisor for almost nine years. This was a very special experience and I learned so much about luxury fashion and styling as well as meeting some amazing and very talented creatives.
Since about 2004 I have been an avid and passionate collector of vintage clothing pieces. The quality, detail, fabric and prints are just not matched today unless you look at luxury fashion.
I spend a lot of time travelling and sourcing these special pieces for you to enjoy.
Often, I find it hard to sell a lot of the pieces I find as they are all pieces I adore myself! I am attracted to great fabrics, colourful interesting prints and good cuts.
Please feel free to email me with any queries you may have on any item and I will be happy to answer your questions.
I hope you enjoy perusing my site.
Love & Peace,
