DivaCon-Blog-Background

 

Twenty-one years ago, owner and designer Candice Gwinn moved to New Orleans from Georgia with $5,000 and a bag of vintage clothing to open her first boutique on Decatur Street in the historic French Quarter.  Gwinn’s love of vintage patterns and understanding of the need for classic silhouettes and styles to suit the modern woman inspired the launch of her first clothing collection in 1999. Today, Trashy Diva has released over 100 collections and has cultivated a reputation as the premiere vintage-reproduction clothing brand, providing women of all shapes and sizes with impeccably tailored, meticulously designed pieces to transcend fashion fads.

From luxury lingerie to shoes and accessories, the five Trashy Diva boutiques in New Orleans and two boutiques in Atlanta provide a vast selection of highly-curated pieces for the distinguishing shopper. Trashy Diva’s commitment to outstanding customer service and a shopping experience that truly values the client’s personal style is the leading force behind the brand’s Fan Group and hundreds of thousands of followers on social media. Through fans of Trashy Diva seeking to gather for socializing, shopping, and making new friends, the DivaCon Convention was born.
