Cynthia Vincent On Why Her Namesake Brand Shut Down and What She's Doing Now

If you're a bohemian fashion lover living in California, chances are that your closet contains at least one piece by Cynthia Vincent. Although there wasn't an official announcement, the designer's namesake label quietly closed last year. "The parent company was sold and my brand was part of the acquisition," Vincent exclusively tells us. "In an effort to be true to myself, I chose to start anew."

Start anew, she did. Earlier this month, Vincent was named creative director of Three Dots, a Garden Grove-based apparel company that prides itself on "effortless clothing for modern women." Under the designer's new venture, CV Creative Agency, the exciting new gig will help bring a fresh and sophisticated perspective to the brand, starting with fall 2016.


We can't wait to see Vincent's vision. As for the future, she reveals that her big dreams include "creating a home collection" and working with "artisans from around the world." It's good to have her back.
