Paige Mycoskie is the creative visionary behind this hugely popular 1970’s inspired California lifestyle brand.
What started as a project in her Venice Beach garage in 2006 has exploded into a global lifestyle brand boasting sold out annual musical festivals and 17 destination retail locations across the U.S.
Paige was so inspired by the fashion and music of the 70’s that she taught herself how to sew so she could replicate the look and feel of the vintage pieces she’d been collecting for years.
She’s tailored the act of buying a hoodie into a nostalgic experience with one-of-a-kind garments distressed to a degree of perfect imperfection.
Aviator Nation celebrates a time when music, surfing, and a love for community shaped our culture. Their 2012 partnership with Austin City Limits Music Festival launched signature Aviator Nation experiences for artists to gather, play vintage instruments and sell specialty merchandise that continues to sell out year after year. The company has expanded its partnerships to include SoulCycle, Honda, Global Citizen's Festival, Lollapalooza, SXSW, and X-Games.
They care deeply about their products and their people. One of their core values is to keep the quality, handmade clothes made sustainably in Los Angeles. During the COVID shutdowns, Paige launched an online flash sale on Aviator Nation’s site to supplement her 200+ employees’ salaries. The online sale resulted in the brand’s biggest day of all time by selling $1.5 million in just 24 hours.
Live. Love. Fly
