Fusions of Fancy celebrates the fantastic, the audacious, the surreal and the spectacular. Our collection of vintage pieces are handpicked with an appreciation for all decades and an emphasis on quality design, sumptuous fabric, unique prints and patterns and special embellishment for a little something fanciful that can be incorporated into your daily wardrobe.
I'm Naomi Robbins the founder and creator of Fusions of Fancy. I sell these items because I'm a collector myself, turning my private passion into a business.
I've been hooked on vintage since the early 1990s when I was a pre-teen. My older sister took me shopping at stores and flea markets around Los Angeles. During high school I worked in one of these local shops using my paycheck to build a collection. Our stylish mom made us clothes and taught me to sew. We had even more stylish grandmothers. I received hand-me-downs from all the women in my family, which I still have and cherish.
I'm a native Angeleno with a showroom in the historic core of Downtown Los Angeles. I graduated from Los Angeles County High School for the Arts where I started to use my vintage finds to style photographs long before the advent of online selling and social media. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where I honed my artistic and design skills. My education and art background, under the influence of fashion magazines, all helped inspire Fusions of Fancy. Today, when I'm not taking pictures or designing, you'll find me cherry picking hidden gems all over the country.
I'm also the co-founder and creator of Bopalacious.com – an online shop that sells vintage records like the ones I collect and spin.
