Welcome to TAVIN BOUTIQUE-

I hope to make you think of a world outside your own window.

A bit about myself-

I began my life as an actress in the theater in NYC where I grew up. From an early age I developed a love for theatrical clothing, always with a deep connection to history, but with an eye towards a modern sensibility. Later I began to scout vintage and contemporary fashions and began selling and re-designing vintage clothing in various Los Angeles flea-markets.
I developed a big following with a fashionable set, young movie stars, musicians, etc.
I then began styling and costume designing for TV and film for 10 plus years in Los Angeles.

Welcome to TAVIN BOUTIQUE-

I hope to make you think of a world outside your own window.

A bit about myself-

I began my life as an actress in the theater in NYC where I grew up. From an early age I developed a love for theatrical clothing, always with a deep connection to history, but with an eye towards a modern sensibility. Later I began to scout vintage and contemporary fashions and began selling and re-designing vintage clothing in various Los Angeles flea-markets.
I developed a big following with a fashionable set, young movie stars, musicians, etc.
I then began styling and costume designing for TV and film for 10 plus years in Los Angeles.

I just recently made the HUGE transition from styling to opening my own boutique (my dream) this past July called TAVIN (my last name) - in the cool area of Echo Park, Los Angeles.
This came about after MANY years of dreaming, wishing and wandering down numerous side streets in many favorite cities like NY and Paris. Meandering through many flea markets all over the world, scribbling tons of notes in many many places.

These are the places where I love to wander and dream.

My aesthetic is many different things- it is certainly whimsical, flowy, dreamy, and boho, yet grounded and earthy as well.
It is playful, childlike and adult in combination- it balances the modern with the nostalgic.
It is the kind of poetry I aspire to.
I see the girl and the woman in clothing that may be vintage, but is as contemporary as any vogue magazine today.

A place that is easy on the wallet where you don't need to spend tons of money to look great.

Many of the pieces I have redesigned, cut and dyed with an eye always for what is current. What looks like now.

What can keep its old beauty but look forward.
I have one foot in a world one hundred years ago and one foot in this world today -and somewhere in a circus tent I live as well.

I am thrilled to share my little TAVIN world with everyone who cannot just pop by in person-

I give you a piece of my soul, my experiences, my dreams and hopes, my quirkiness, my strange ideas and normal ones both- and certainly my love of colors and textures and fabrics and worlds I think of when I close my eyes

Enjoy and please do keep visiting as the changes will be expanding and growing always.
