Our Story

Fashion executive Jen Coronacion is no stranger to the material world. Hailing from NYC, she has worked in the fashion industry for 20+ years.

Detroit native Missy Gibson, a seasoned rock-n-roll singer, songwriter and fashion enthusiast with a passion for drama and style has been working as personal stylist since 2009.

When Jen and Missy met, they hit it off right away, despite coming from two different angles of the fashion world. They quickly learned that they spoke the same language and shared an aesthetic and appreciation for high quality clothing and sustainable fashion.

Villa California was one of those silver linings that came from the necessity for creativity brought on by the pandemic downtime. Both fans of men's-inspired womenswear, vintage Hollywood and comfort, Villa California was born.
