Born and raised in the Bay Area and Central Valley in California, Evina has always been in love with fashion – as an art form, as a first impression, and, most of all, as a way of making people feel good.
Evina has been styling since her early twenties, when she studied visual communications at The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in San Francisco. It was then that she became a merchandiser for Bloomingdale’s, and enrolled in an SRW class with Kesha McLeod and Calyann Barnett, which launched her into the world of wardrobe styling.
In 2018, inspired to take her passion to the next level, Evina launched a new business with her dear friend Norma G. Our Messy Closet is an online resale store featuring new and thrifted pieces the two fashionistas have snapped up while pulling or photoshoots or simply just shopping. Their endless patience for finding that perfect item, makes this online shop even more special.
