In an age of high priced luxury fashion brands and exploitation of workers who make them, arises a new player. Aiming to disrupt the market Vintage&Co combines conscious ethical business and maintaining luxury value for a brand which is young, vibrant and set on challenging the business model.
Founded by Kelvin Mvundura in 2014 what started out as a mere idea quickly turned into a business venture. The main motive for the Kickstarter campaign is utilise crowd-funding to develop investment. Vintage&Co has a massive opportunity to market the brand on a wider scale and will be launching various brand activations and experiential events to increase awareness of the brand, its charitable causes where potential investors can fund campaigns.

Vintage&Co will be working with 2 charities these are Iris Global & Orphans Promise
The uniqueness of Vintage & Co
Kelvin Mvundura states “The good thing about our company is that we have analysed other fashion companies & I have to say they are boring, there seems to be a lack of creativity within the industry. We as a brand have already made some steps to disrupt brands by our creativity & sense of touch. We are also making sure that anyone can buy from our brand so we have established three collections to target & reach people in a range of financial & social circumstances. The three collections will ensure that anyone can now wear a designer brand that’s not only affordable but also having a positive impact towards the community. The three brands that Vintage&Co will operate under are ‘Vintage&Co’ , ‘Vintage&Co London’ & ‘Vintage&Co Jeans”.
