Welcome to my world!
Welcome to Mandatory! This is more than just a vintage shop. This is my ode to fashion, celebrating clothing of the past & the stories they tell.
Mandatory was born simply from my love for fashion and my aspiration to make fashion sustainable.
Antiquing with my mom at a young age, I learned how to give old items new life and how beautiful & special these items are. It was much more fun & rewarding to go to a thrift store with my mom than to a big retailer.
In college, I fell in love with film and knew I needed to merge the two arts in someway.
Mandatory has developed to be a shop and a creative outlet for me to share special projects, such as super 8 films & fashion editorials.
I hope you enjoy and find inspiration here! And have fun with fashion!
