Designer Cynthia Vincent began her training at the Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design under the M.A.G.I.C scholarship. Upon graduation, Vincent received the Silver Thimble Award from Ann Cole, a great implication of the success that was yet to come.
Due to her acquired skills at Otis, Vincent found success early on in her professional career. Selected alongside the most talented British Applicants, the California designer began working at London-based Jane Ong & CO. Ltd. where she quickly rose to the position of the head designer. After returning to the States, Vincent continued to refine her skills working for a handful of companies including Hamlet Selwyn.
Vincent began her first company, St. Vincent, in 1993. Her incredible talent was recognized once again when Los Angeles honored her with the Rising Star Award. In 2002, Vincent merged St. Vincent with another company where she would help define the beginning of a new line.
In 2003, Vincent introduced the line that was to define her sensibility. She previewed her new vision, TWELFTH STREET BY CYNTHIA VINCENT, during Los Angeles Fashion week. Appropriately named after the street on which she grew up in the suburbs of LA, Twelfth Street became a very personal project for Vincent. Over the years, such staples as the silk crepe de chine slips, velvet boudoir jackets and luxurious sweaters have become the most sought after fashion pieces from New York to Hollywood.
In 2005 the designer expanded her Twelfth Street line to include shoes, belts and other accessories. You can find the Twelfth Street line at ShopBop.com, Revolve Clothing, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Barneys and other fine stores.
