Yvonne and Mitchel is an upcycled fashion brand that gives old clothes new life. Caylin Yvonne Willis and Jared Mitchel Armstrong created the brand in 2017 after they met in college and bonded over their love for thrifting and personal style. Jared was going to school to get a degree in health sciences but longed to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a designer, while Caylin was studying journalism and looking to start her own clothing business.
Check out some examples of Yvonne and Mitchel's striking and unique creations!
Although the couple isn't professionally trained in fashion, they decided to merge their talents and launched an online vintage clothing store through Instagram in 2017.After Jared taught himself how to sew three years later, they started transforming their thrift finds into one-of-a-kind, upcycled garments.
Yvonne and Mitchel is owned and operated by Jared and Caylin out of Kansas City, Missouri, USA. The couple handles every aspect of the business themselves: sourcing, designing, sewing, modeling, photography, marketing, etc. 100% of the fabrics that are used to make Yvonne and Mitchel's upcycled garments — and 99% of the shipping materials they're packaged in — are sourced from local thrift shops and recycling centers.
When Crispina learned about Yvonne and Mitchel, she knew she had to have Caylin and Jared featured as presenters in her second annual Rags to Riches Textile Upcycling Summit, held last month in May 2023. They totally brought their creative vision and experience to the summit mix, and now they share some awesome stories and ideas with Crispina in this rad new podcast interview - Episode 34 of Rags to Riches!
