Cute, Retro & Vintage-style

Modcloth's Background

When ModCloth founder Susan Gregg Koger was in high school, she spent weekends thrift shopping for unique vintage finds. She found herself snatching up great pieces that weren't necessarily her size, but that she couldn't pass up. When she went away to college at Carnegie Mellon University, she had a dorm room full of amazing clothes and accessories. So, at 17-years old, she decided to start an online shop with her boyfriend-turned-husband, Eric Koger. Susan quickly realized there were many girls like her who wanted to express their personal style with one-of-a-kind and unique apparel. When her small dorm room was bursting at the seams with retro garb, Susan and Eric decided to set up shop in a house that doubled as their living space and office. They increased their inventory to feed their customers' hunger for retro clothing, selling vintage-inspired items from indie designers, as well as continuing to provide shoppers with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces. Today, ModCloth has grown into a thriving business of over 100 employees, yet the small-business feel remains.
