Modern Romance at Fashion Island Turns 21
Modern Romance is celebrating a very special anniversary this month – 21 years as a favorite womenswear boutique at Fashion Island!
To fete its 21st birthday, Modern Romance will be offering special in-store promotions and giveaways on Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16. That weekend only, customers will receive 21 percent off one item in the store!
As part of the celebration, the boutique will also launch its new line Stevie Sister, a capsule collection of romantic bohemian women’s apparel.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane with Modern Romance owner Theresa Johnson.
When Modern Romance opened its doors in 1994, it was one of the first locally-owned contemporary women’s apparel shops at Fashion Island.
Back then, Theresa stocked her boutique with clothing and accessories from brands like Alexander Brown, Marika Nakk and TT Mar – pieces that were vintage-inspired, with floral prints and a soft, feminine feel.
Over the years, Modern Romance has carried hundreds of premium California-casual brands from Splendid to Michael Stars.
Today, shoppers can still find plenty of updated looks that still embrace the bohemian coastal Orange County lifestyle, from Jen’s Pirate Booty and Flynn Skye to Novella Royale and For Love and Lemons.
Make sure to visit the store this weekend to enjoy this offer, other giveaways and to wish them a happy birthday!
Modern Romance is located between BCBG and Haagen Dazs.
