About 19th & Whimsy

Welcome to the corner of 19th & Whimsy! It's the intersection where contemporary fashion meets an element of whimsy. My name is Lauren Hayashibara and I'm the independent owner and designer of 19th & Whimsy. My online shop launched in Honolulu in 2012 and is now based in Los Angeles so I could be closer to my family. I specialize in women's contemporary clothing: casual chic styles for every day as well as styles that can effortlessly go from day to night. The brand is all about incorporating a whimsical element: an exclusive print, hand dyed fabric, or simply a little bit of sparkle, into fun and modern styles. I combine a mix of high fashion, resort, and basics to create collections that can be mixed and matched, layered, and worn anytime, anywhere.

19th & Whimsy is proudly designed and made in America. I design all my women's body styles, patterns, original printed fabrics, and artwork. Fabrics are sourced from around the world. Most styles are cut and sewn by me in my home studio and select styles are manufactured in Honolulu, LA, and NYC. I hope you find something special here!

Thanks for stopping by!
