Launched in 2014, Amanda Shi Los Angeles is a contemporary women’s wear brand that draws inspiration from vintage and heritage classics. While distinctly modern in silhouette, the collections echo the elegance and glamour of decades past.

The designer has collected vintage clothing for years and developed her eponymous line out of a love for vintage couture and the quest for what she calls “practical sophistication.”

“I design modern clothing that allows women to travel effortlessly, whether at home or abroad,” says the designer. “The goal is to be wearable and timeless with subtle details that are edgy yet classically feminine.”

Amanda Shi Los Angeles is available through its online store and exclusively at American Rag in Los Angeles and Newport Beach.
