Samaya launched her vintage clothing business in 2004 after building up an extensive personal collection of couture & design focused pieces.
Her eye for unusual pieces soon caught the attention of some very influential figures in fashion, and her London vintage stand was visited regularly by designers, stylists and costumiers searching for inspiration, as well as individuals looking for one-off pieces to wear.
Visitors to Samaya Ling Vintage include: Maria Grazia Chiuri (Dior), Daniela Kamiliotis (Ralph Lauren), New York Vintage, Anthropologie, Paco Delgado, Burberry, Reiss, Jigsaw, Abercrombie & Fitch, Paul Smith, Jill Stuart (NYC), Kinder Aggugini and ASOS.
Samaya also runs a very lovely airbnb in her home town of Bristol, as well as studying an MA in Arts Management.
Since lockdown the stock on Samaya Ling Vintage has been changing to include slow fashion items alongside the vintage pieces, such as Greek cotton dresses and Ghanaian woven goods.
The new website will have pieces for the home too, old and new and always from a sustainable source.
