Pre-Loved Podcast: Pearl of AIMA Vintage
Today we’re Pearl of Aima Vintage, a vintage store based in Mumbai, India. Pearl started AIMA as an Instagram shop in June 2019.
On this episode we talk about Pearl’s upbringing with secondhand, the secondhand and vintage culture in India and how it has recently shifted, we talk about running an Instagram shop on the side of a full-time job -- Pearl shoots, styles, models, conceptualises, package orders and everything in between by herself, while working full time as a social media manger and graphic designer! And, of course, we hear really great style stories. I’m excited to bring you this episode today, so let’s dive right in!
