When it comes to fierce fashion, one-of-a-kind pieces, and styling services look no further than the Vann Collections.
Vann Collections was founded in 2012 by Travian Vann, a designer and stylist based in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. Vann initially got her start up-cycling vintage clothing for editorial shoots with celebrity photographers Brandon Woods (@bwoodsphotography) and Joi Pearson (@ubringmejoi). These photographers pushed her to start designing and creating original pieces. After seven years of practicing her craft, Travian became very well-known for her trendy exclusive designs and styling skills within the industry; which lead her into designing full pieces from scratch. It was all history from there! [Interview via the King Network]
What is the inspiration behind your brand?
Travian Vann: I’m a fashion rebel at heart. I design with one thing in mind…To make my clients stand out and be different.
What sets your brand and designs apart from others in the fashion industry?
Vann: The VC brand consists of designs from bathing suits to evening gowns. We haven’t been around that long, but we are making noise. We are about to launch our fall collection, which will be available in our e-boutique. It will include a few pieces for the gents as well. Our goal is to provide “exclusive” designs for our clients. We believe in only creating a few pieces of the same design to keep that “exclusive” feel. This Fall collection will not be your typical “bodycon” dress lineup. We are focusing on prints, silks, and cottons for everyday wear. Frocks, bodycon designs and trousers will be designed as chic wear for a girl’s night out. If you are looking for exclusive designs or maybe your style heart desires a vintage garment, Vann Collections has you covered. Vann Collections is also known for the VCStyle Team. We offer full styling services for any genre of fashion; grunge, rock, urban, pinup…you name it, we can create it for your next photo shoot, video or event.
What type of pieces do you like?
Vann: I love 60’s-70’s era inspired pieces, high waist and bold shoulders.
If you had to choose one fashion designer to compare yourself to, who would it be?
Vann: Betsey Johnson, I absolutely adore her! She has overcome a lot in this industry. We have a different design eye for fashion, but how she started I can relate to one hundred percent. Just like Betsey, I never imagined to become a designer for the world to see, I was creating only for myself and the fashion world invited me in.
