Citizen Profiles: Lara Kaluza

Name: Lara Kaluza

Job Title: Co-Owner

Where Were You Born: London, England

Astrological Sign: Leo

For those of you who don't already know this, Lara is one of the co-owners of Citizen Vintage. Thanks to her mum, Lara had a love for vintage from a very early age. And after years of collecting (hoarding), she finally decided to partake in pop up sample sales where she met Becky (Citizen co-owner) and well... the rest is history. Five years later, Citizen Vintage has remained the go-to vintage shop in Montreal. Also important to mention that Lara graduated from Concordia University having studied theatre set design and costume. This allows her to step outside of the vintage fashion world (only momentarily), and let her creative juices flow by working with critically acclaimed local plays. So if you ever wonder why and how it is that the CV editorial sets look so good, well... that would be thanks to Lara.
