Velvit is a concept-store and gallery specializing in dark art, whether it be fashion, fine art, music --- all of which are works by independent artists and designers from around the world. With a rotating gallery of look books and artist profiles, shoppers and art lovers alike can discover new and upcoming works through Velvit. Each season, Velvit's creator and curator, Jaimie Lake, will conceptualize a collection incorporating traditional and non-traditional artists who's work will be available for purchase and viewing in the gallery. Read our weekly blog for exclusive interviews with artists featured on Velvit, statement pieces, Velvit Vault guest bloggers, and artistic reviews with off-trend advice.
The beauty of Velvit is it's exclusivity. As an online gallery, Velvit will only offer works by independent designers and artists, some pieces exclusively designed and made specifically for Velvit. These works go beyond visual art--- including giving fashion and accessory designers the respect they deserve, as their creations are wearable art. Velvit will be celebrating the written word with the same respect. Artists from around the world will have the opportunity to submit to the site's curator, as she prepares the launch of each collection.
Velvit's mission is to showcase a diverse medium of fine art, whether it be fashion, music, printmaking, or poetry. With each collection launched, there will be a featured fine artist who will have the opportunity to show a series of work for the Velvit Gallery that compliments that particular season's concept. This work will be available for purchase exclusively through Velvit.
The Dark Arts
Black is Back. Velvit carries exclusively black clothing and works of art. All black. No exceptions.
The Big Picture
Velvit only supports the Slow Fashion model for their concept store and gallery. We do not support the depletion of fossil fuels and natural resources that result of Fast Fashion. We will not consider carrying mass manufactured labels, ever.
