Still looking for a one of a kind, last minute Christmas gift? Something that can’t be found here on our website? If you live near the Sugar House or Provo area, Unhinged might have what you are looking for.
Unhinged carries a wide variety of locally made (and found) clothing, artwork, and other gift items. We talked to Amy Taggart, Wardrobe Stylist and manager of the Sugar House store, to get some more insight about their business and learn about local fashion trends for the upcoming year.
How long have you guys been in business? Which location was opened first? Do you have plans to expand to any other locations?
Unhinged has been in business for three years. We opened in Sugar House first on 1121 E 2100 S. Our Provo store opened up in July of 2013, and then we relocated our Sugar House location to 2165 S Highland Dr in February of 2014. We’re always looking for opportunities to grow our business into new areas.
In addition to your Sugar House and Provo locations, can customers shop online for any of your products?
Our plans for 2015 are getting our website current so that customers can shop conveniently online. We have been experimenting with various online shopping systems on Instagram, so customers can purchase certain products that we showcase via Instagram.
What are some popular trends in local style? Is there anything that makes the fashion scene in Utah unique compared to other parts of the country?
As far as local trends, people are really into the whole vintage scene and upcycled, repurposed clothing that has been modified. This is part of what makes the fashion scene unique here in Utah. People are really into setting their own trends and cultivating and making their own style.
How many local clothing brands do you currently carry in your shops?
We currently have about a dozen local clothing designers in each store.
Besides clothing, what other types of products can be found in your stores?
We also have an array of lifestyle products that are unique to our store including handcrafted local jewelry, barware, handbags, home decor, vintage decor like 1920’s cameras, and radios, steamer trunks, and suitcases. There truly is something for everyone at Unhinged, and we are a destination location for trendsetters, pickers, collectors, and fashionistas.
Any upcoming events planned for either of your stores?
We are planning a Blogger event for January and will also continue to be part of the monthly Sugar House Art Walk which is the 2nd Friday of every month. This is a great promotional vehicle for local artists to promote their art.
