"Our brand was born out of a desire to make designer brands affordable for all"
Our brand was born out of a desire to make designer brands affordable for all.
To achieve this we combined our passions of fashion and travel and set out to source authentic designer pieces from the home of vintage shopping, Japan.
We chose to source our pieces from Japan as there is no other market in the world that can consistently deliver authentic, affordable and quality designer pieces.
We chose the name Patina Avenue as it best describes the stunning pieces we source. The word Patina can be summed up as 'ageing beautifully', often this word is used to describe leather that has developed a beautiful, honey-like colour that can only get better with age.
We began our journey in late 2020 with a small release of designer clothing and bags.
In our first months, we encountered all the highs and lows from making our first sales to having to rebuild our website in 48 hours.
We cannot be thankful enough for the support from all of our customers who are the driving force behind our constant improvement and growth.

Our brand is built on the premise that it is possible to shop designer brands sustainably.
We want to contribute towards building a society where fashion related purchases are not undermined by environmental concerns.
We play our part by creating an avenue where pre-loved/vintage pieces are given a second life. Each piece that we re-home, is a piece that is potentially not wasted.
We encourage learning about the slow-fashion movement here to see how we all can make a difference.
We only use compostable packaging to post our items. More can be found out here.
We are always looking for ways to minimise our impact on the environment, if you have any suggestions for us, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Instagram @patinaavenue, we would love to hear from you!
