Paige Mycoskie is the founder & creative visionary behind the 1970’s inspired California lifestyle brand, Aviator Nation.
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. The laid-back 70’s vibe of Aviator Nation drew locals and tourists.
In 2013, GQ Magazine named Paige as Menswear Designer of the Year. With this recognition, she was asked to create a capsule collection for GQ x GAP. The collection debuted at GAP stores domestically & internationally selling out globally in the first 24 hours.
