Evans first launched her vintage clothing boutique in Sydney, Australia catering to a celebrity clientele including Beyonce and Cate Blanchett who were often featured in fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and InStyle as well as the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival and MTV,Aria, Logie and AFI Awards. The boutique, served as a resource for the Australian theater, music, television and movie industries. Her compassion and commitment to service resonated with Saquing, who is partnering with Evans. She served as the Director of the San Francisco Chapter Freedom and Fashion, is an indepenent consultant with Arbonne International, mentoring women in business and beauty and wellness, and is Cofounder of Cry of the Broken.
Purchase tickets to the Fundraiser: 52 Letters is a powerful & poetic one-woman stage play, written and performed by the award winning Regina Y. Evans. 52 letters brings awareness to the issue of sex trafficking and American Youth and all proceeds will benefit Regina’s Door to unlock a dream.
As the Public Relations Officer for Love Never Fails, Evans has enlisted this organization as a community partner in serving the boutique’s mission. Love Never Fails is "a non-profit organization dedicated to the rehabilitation, education and protection of youth involved or at risk of becoming involved in domestic sex trafficking."
As a social enterprise committed to incubating independent retailers and renewing neighborhoods, Sarah Filley, Cofounder of Popuphood, conceived of this Pop-up project in partnership with Ben and Richard Weinstein of WCRE. The 500 Sq. ft. space allows us to introduce several of our Popuphood members through a series of short term 3-4 month Pop-ups throughout the year. This white box approach is an evolution of our Pop-up to Permanent Program in response to the changing ecosystem of retail in downtown Oakland. Regina’s Door is the second Pop-up in our incubator series with a goal of a permanent space in the Spring. Read more here and here about the Pop-up Bodega.
