Trashy Diva first opened in 1996 and the website began in 1997. Trashy Diva started as a vintage clothing only store and grew into a blossoming clothing company with the addition of a 2 piece clothing line in 1999. The clothing line was expanded in 2000 to include 6 additional designs. Since then, the clothing line has been available in several other boutiques around the world.
We regularly get asked about the name. Trashy Diva was named over 15 years ago (before most people ever heard the word DIVA and certainly before it was common). The name was inspired by an article in W magazine about vintage starlets including Marilyn Monroe and Jane Mansfield. We regularly get questioned about “why Trashy”? The Trashy part of the name expresses two different ideas to us. At the start, we sold only vintage, so the idea was that found objects (aka some people’s unwanted items ‘trashy’ ) could be made beautiful and and stylish. Another reason Trashy Diva appealed to us as a name was that it expressed an idea of an irreverent beauty- the girl who doesn’t always follow the rules!!
The Style & The Clothing:
Each piece both timeless and ageless with inspiration taken from antique and vintage clothing with a strong emphasis on feminine styles that flatter a variety of body types. We strive to bring back fine details that are rarely seen in clothing today. Most of our clothing is not “hand made”, but you find that each piece has a one of a kind feeling. You might see the clothing and think “vintage reproduction, but believe me it is most often FAR from the case”. We base many of our styles on vintage, but totally fashion each style to be above all else flattering- which usually means weeks of refitting the garments and recutting patterns. We use only fine fabrics in our garments PERIOD (why use anything but the best?). Most of our garments that are lined are also lined in silk, therefore we suggest DRY CLEANING for all of our garments.We produce an exceptionally well made clothing at attractive price points.
