Welcome to Source Vintage, an online vintage clothing store with a passion for promoting positive body image and gender neutral style. We encourage innovation and individuality in the construction of personal style, and are firm believers that such style should not be dictated to by the perceptions and opinions of others. There is a very narrow standard of what ‘beauty’ is in today’s society, which is not inclusive of people of all shapes and sizes or of non-conforming gender or transgender, whom never feel represented. We want to breakdown these barriers that currently exist in the fashion world. To this end, our store is completely gender-less and we are dedicated to using models that fit the clothing, rather than making the clothing fit our models, which for us is common sense. We are all beautiful, so let’s get back to basics! Ultimately, our aim is to help bring us closer to a fashion industry that is truly reflective of the world we live in. Help us make a difference, join the Source Vintage revolution!
My name is Stephen and I am the owner of Source Vintage. Source Vintage has been an idea of mine for the past ten years, but, as I am sure most entrepreneurs do at some stage, I lacked the courage to make the initial jump from a full time job into becoming self employed. It was not until I met the love of my life and moved to Scotland two years ago that I managed to finally find the courage to make the leap. This was mainly down to the support and encouragement I received from my now fiancé.
We all have our own hang ups on our appearance, including myself, and so I wanted to build a business that helped promote a positive image of all different shapes, sizes and appearances. For me, it was about providing a safe, positive, non-judgmental shopping experience that is truly reflective of the world we live in, and which can be enjoyed by everyone. It’s about inclusion, rather than exclusion.
Over the past six months we have slowly been piecing the Source Vintage empire together, meeting some truly amazing and inspirational people along the way. We are on course to launch our website and online store at the end of May 2016, and we are super excited to finally show you the results of what have been a very very very busy half a year. We really hope that you are just as excited as us when you see our online store, and that you will support us in promoting some very important issues along the way.
We will be posting more updates of our journey over the coming months so please do keep following. All the best to every single one of you, you are beautiful in every single way! ✊❤️
