Today’s episode is with Michael Phillips of Toots Vintage! Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, Michael graduated with a fashion design degree from Kent State University and then moved to New York City to pursue a career in the fashion industry. Today, we’ll hear the story of how Toots Vintage went from being just a twinkle in his eye to a beautiful online vintage shop specializing in 20th century womenswear, and some of Michael’s own special designs.
The name Toots Vintage, taken from his grandmother’s nickname, represents more than an admiration for vintage and antiques - it reimagines everyone as a princess.
