About

Refashioned sleeping beauties

CYCLONE was born out of my passion for thrift shopping, thriving to find lost treasuries such as a hand sewn dress made out of pure silk adorned with never-seen-before prints, but struggling to manage to wear these on a daily basis.

I refashion vintage clothing to give it a second wind and create unique pieces with a quality of sewing and fabrics that is nowadays difficult to find.
Creating clothing that has absolutely no impact on the environment, as the raw material already exists and would probably have been thrown away anyways, is also a motivation.

I believe we all are increasingly interested in having a new approach to buying clothing: we want pieces that last, that are produced in conditions that do not make us blush, that do not add up to the bill we already have towards the environment, and that reveal our personal beauty in a unique manner.

My ambition is to make clothing that is consistent with those many principles. Each piece of CYCLONE's clothing is sustainable and unique, and I hope it makes you feel so too.

    My name is Marie, I am a 28 year-old Frenchy currently leaving in Paris, right next to the fabric shops in the Montmartre area. I learn to sew with my mother, who taught me to make my first (very old-fashioned) dresses when I was a teenager, and I've never stopped since then. My 2 best memories linked to sewing were when she traveled to London with a 10 pounds machine as my birthday gift; and when I had the great honor of sewing the wedding dress of a relative, who was the most beautiful person on the D-day. Apart from sewing I love traveling (I have had the change to live in London, Madrid and New York for some time), gigs (most kinds of music) and maths (which certainly should help me manage my Etsy shop).

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Unless mentioned otherwise, our garments are measured from seam to seam while the garment is lying flat.

All garment sizes as listed are approximations based on modern sizing charts and will not always correspond to the size listed on the garment's label, as sizing varies drastically from decade to decade and can often be misleading by today's generally accepted standards! For exact fit, please refer to measurements.

Please take a good look at our images and know your measurements before you buy. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us before buying!

Some items have been pinned for fit in our photos but we will always precise if it is the case in product descriptions

Products condition

CYCLONE clothes are all pre-worn items, mostly vintage with at least 20 years old. Consequently some light wear is to be expected. Most of our items are in excellent condition though and we will always make note of any stains, tears, or wearing in the description, no matter how small or subtle.

Please take a good look at our images and know your measurements before you buy. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us before buying!

Accessories not included unless specifically stated.

We are a new store and we want to build a reputation for amazing customer service so please let's communicate if you have any questions or concerns before or after you buy an item!

We value excellent customer service above all and we want to make sure that you are very happy with your purchase.
