A true entrepreneur in the making since childhood, Carmina de Young's collections are a bold balance between modern culture and contemporary style. Each of her pieces are designed to empower women in a way that reinforces style and comfort - and don’t forget the taste of colour and flare.
And it doesn’t stop at style, de Young is committed to using environmentally sustainable fabrics, and HELLO they’re luxuriously soft….it’s a true win/win.
As a proud London, Ontario local business to another, it’s inspiring to choose to grow as a sustainable business and make a positive impact on the local community and beyond. Curiosities is thrilled to carry Carmina’s work.
Carmina’s dedication and strong heart follows in the footsteps of her mother, Maria. Growing up in Puebla, Mexico, Carmina was taught to sew at a young age so she could make clothing as gifts for friends and family. Carmina’s parents were welcoming to people who were in need of shelter and food where they never asked for anything in return. As Carmina supported her parents and visitors in her home she dreamt of living in another country and being successful enough to provide a better life for her parents.
De Young moved to Canada in 1999 where she started a family and enrolled in a Fashion Design program. Following graduation, Carmina started her own business and has been growing her clientele ever since. With her many mentors along the way, the support of inspired organizations eager to help, and her family and friends, Carmina launched her ‘Carmina de Young’ label, a wearable collection in 2015.
Carmina works closely with Donald, who brought his style, keen interest, and excellence to the Carmina de Young team in 2017.
If we haven’t convinced you enough that Carmina is truly amazing, you are invited to check out her collection in our store starting August 18th...but you’ll have to wait until then for any more details!
