Aviator Nation was born in Paige's garage in Venice Beach, 2006, and has since grown into a global lifestyle brand with 5 destination retail locations. Abbot Kinney / Venice, CA (2009), Manhattan Beach (2011), Malibu (2014), Haight Ashbury / San Francisco, CA (2015) and Laguna Beach, CA (2016).
Paige's passion for 1970's fashion and the music that defined that time period inspired her to create her own clothing stitched by hand. While working at a surf shop in Southern California, she purchased a sewing machine and spent nights after work teaching herself to sew, determined to create garments with the same look and feel of the vintage pieces she had been collecting for years.
From music festivals to shop in shops to launching an Aviator Nation flagship on the corner of Haight / Ashbury in San Francisco, Paige has taken her unique approach to fashion design and created a global niche market. She has tailored the act of buying a hoodie into a nostalgic experience. Her garments are all handmade in California, in the Aviator Nation factory where each item is distressed to a degree of perfect imperfection, creating a one of a kind piece. Keeping the garments made in America is a core value of the brand.
