Sweet. Pretty. Lovely. Whimsical. Unique. One-of-a-kind. Ultra feminine. Modern. Edgy. These are just some of words used to describe owner and founder of Girlie, Tina Levine, as well as her designs.
Girlie and Girlie Remix, a line of vintage inspired jewelry and re-purposed vintage clothing, respectively, celebrate repurposing of the old and the new. Tina’s designs combine vintage fabrics, lace, trims, embellishments and stones with modern elements, resulting in stand out pieces that are ready to be coveted.
Girlie is not for the faint of heart. Girlie is for those who celebrate their individual style. Girlie is for those who like to set the trend. Girlie is for those who like to be looked at. Girlie is for those who seek thrill and adventure. Girlie is for YOU.
Tina'a known to change her hair color at a whim (current mood: red!) and sometimes wears cat rimmed glasses. She received her formal training at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise (FIDM) in San Francisco. When opportunity knocked to work in the Fashion Office at Nordstrom, Tina threw the door wide open, took the leap and moved to Los Angeles. But, the pull of designing was too strong. So, Tina took another leap of faith, left the corporate world and has been designing ever since. Tina lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and cats who proudly wear Girlie collars. The cats. Not her husband.
