Foxy, fierce and fashionable. Welcome to the VIXEN way.
What began as an edgy event company grew rapidly to produce influential pop-up boutiques and runway shows throughout San Diego, eventually opening a storefront in Encinitas in the past year. VIXEN is led by one powerhouse woman with a serious sense of style and self: Venessa Johnson.
Venessa created VIXEN to fill a personal need while working in the luxury lifestyle market. Her spunk speaks volumes through her obsession with the indie clothing scene. She believes fashion shouldn’t be uptight or snobby, but rather rebellious and expressive. Most importantly, Venessa believes in the power of locals helping locals and exposing attendees to both emerging and established designers.
She’s no rookie to the scene, either. Venessa worked from a start in retail, as an acclaimed fashion editor and writer for FINE magazine, a runway fashion show producer and stylist on editorial shoots while building a steady clientele of her own over the past 15 years. Launching the traveling pop-up boutique concept combined her deep connections in the industry with fellow fashion-forward vixens.
VIXEN continues to produce events in San Diego that unite the worlds of fashion, art and music, such as the annual San Diego’s Most Stylish Man competition. The Encinitas boutique creates a landing pad for all of the exceptional talent in San Diego that VIXEN seeks to showcase, curating a full fashion experience for the VIXEN girl ready to rule the world.
