Our Story

The Origins

Owner and creator Karina Nicole began Maven Boutique LA in early 2014 as an LA-based women’s clothing boutique carrying pieces that are stylish, ethically made, and easy to wear. Her vision is to honor women’s dynamic influence in the world— from the nurturer to the dreamer to the explorer. Each season, a new collection is delicately pieced together to acknowledge these ever changing roles.

The word Maven sprouts from Hebrew meaning “one with wisdom.” The name was chosen as an expression of gratitude for the many talented artists who have inspired Maven Boutique LA, as well as, the rich expertise of the designers, pattern makers, seamstresses, artists, perfumers, that allow us to share their brands. 

The Vibe

Knee length skirts, polished blouses, and go-to neutrals are perfectly suited for the grit and glamour of the downtown office. While an array of lacy rompers, brightly colored cocktail dresses and sexy cropped tops provide plenty of options for weekend getaways.  A blend of designer pieces and seasonal separates, the boutique offers charming looks whatever the occasion.
