Pre-Loved Podcast: Rosella Vintage & Minneapolis Vintage
Jahna Peloquin is a Minneapolis-based style writer, stylist and style expert with a passion for local fashion, community, sustainability, the arts, and all things vintage. Her writing and styling has been published in Minneapolis Star Tribune, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine and Midwest Home, and she served as the Style Editor of Minnesota Monthly and the Fashion Director of Rosedale Center. Building on 15 years in the local fashion community as a stylist and fashion reporter, Jahna co-founded Fashion Week MN in 2015 as a vehicle to support the local fashion community.
Most recently, she founded her own vintage fashion brand, Rosella Vintage,and is a regular vendor at the Minneapolis Vintage Market, and at other pop-ups around the Twin Cities area.
Coming soon – late September — you’ll be able to find Rosella Vintage at a collective vintage shop called Olio Vintage, so you’ll have more opportunities to shop in-person! She’s also planning to launch her own website around this time.
In this episode, we talk about the Minneapolis fashion scene she grew up in, being a part of local fashion shows, working as a fashion writer, the start of her vintage shop, and her favorite style moments!
When I chat with her, it really brings to light the importance of community in creating a great local vintage scene, and I think that leads us in to the secondhand half of our show really well! For the second half of the show, we’re headed to a Minneapolis Vintage Market event. Now, the market rotates through the Twin Cities every month (super cool!) but this particular market was actually at the Triple-A baseball stadium, home of the St. Paul Saints, a Minneapolis Twins affiliate!
This was such a fun environment for a vintage market, and I had an absolute blast strolling around with my concessions and a beer chatting with the local Minneapolis vintage vendors.
Let’s head in and hear their stories!
