Name of company: The Upnorth Vintage Club

Type of business: Fashion/Reworked Clothing

Location: Manchester, UK

How long has the company been running? 1 Year

Where did the idea come from?

I have a degree in fashion and have always loved mixing traditional menswear with womenswear. I initially reworked a men’s blazer into a two piece for myself and knew there was a market for this kind of thing as soon as I wore it out.

Currently, how many people work for the business?

So far, just myself!

What are your company values?

My main value is sustainability. I rework vintage men’s blazers into new pieces for women (or men!). I do everything myself so I know exactly where each piece has come from.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a business?

Go for it! I run The Upnorth Vintage Club alongside my regular job, and as tiring as it is, it’s also so rewarding.

Where do you hope the company will be in 5 years time? 

Wow! I’d love TUVC to have been noticed as a brand by thousands! Why dream small hey?!
