Behind Coeva Vintage
Coeva (she/her) is a multi-hyphenate with a passion for authenticity, self-expression, and vintage fashion. With a background in Fine Art, she has woven creative and entrepreneurial skills into a multidisciplinary tapestry.
She's an entrepreneur; and also an artist, transformational coach, stylist,
and internationally published model.
As an Irish-Canadian immigrant, Coeva's journey is a testament to embracing individuality. Queer and neurodivergent, she is an advocate of radical self-acceptance, and creativity, where personal style knows no bounds.
Her mantra is simple:
wear whatever makes you feel good,
regardless of size, age, gender, or other people's opinions.
A Lifelong Love Affair with Vintage
Coeva's love for vintage clothing dates back over 25 years.
It began in a tiny store in Ireland while sifting through dusty racks of mundane mens and womens suits. Amidst the ordinary, an extraordinary find deep in the racks: a vibrant 1960s red tapestry and sheepskin coat - sitting unworn for 30 years - in her exact size.
This discovery ignited a lifelong passion for vintage textiles, fashion, and the little sparks of excitement that a special piece can add to a wardrobe.
