Hello! We are Johanna and Bryn, and we created Wax Poetic in 2014. Since then it has grown from a small web based business to a recognized brand within the Vintage/Pinup community. Wax Poetic currently has retailers in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe and Japan and we are acquiring new customers monthly.

Our aesthetic is fun, whimsical, and polished - we make silhouettes that are inspired by vintage styles but have a modern and flattering fit for every woman.
All of our garments are made with love in the USA, and we are committed to American based manufacturing - this includes our hangtags and back neck labels!

A little bit more about us:

Johanna has been in the fashion industry for 10 years, but has been drawing and designing for most of her life. Wax Poetic is her labor of love. She does it all, from designing, to patternmaking (sometimes!), to creating artwork for graphic tees, and overseeing the whole production process, along with juggling the website and social media. Whew!

Bryn is the logistics side of the business, making sure everything is running smoothly for trade shows and vending, researching new factories and mills, and all around helps keep things running smoothly! He's also the "veteran-owned" half of the business, as a Navy vet!

We are so excited that you're here to share this journey, and hope you love our designs as much as we do. Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on the latest releases and promotions!
