My Story


Evette Preston - Founder & Designer behind Preston and James

For me, fashion has been part of my life since I was a little girl. I thrived on every chance to be unique from my siblings and peers from day one! Growing up in a big family meant you had to be creative with your wardrobe, incorporating hand-me-downs with vintage and new. Fashion has been my career choice since my grade school and I'm blessed to have had the opportunity to work in this field my entire working career. 

I'm a huge nature girl and conscientious for our environment and future. I started the brand with sustainable living and effortless style in mind. My first collections were vintage and upcycled pieces. Over the years as the collections evolved and with lots of trial and error our styles have morphed into our fun capsules you see today.

I'm inspired by my love of the Earth, California and vintage. As a brand for all humans and unisex fashion each collection is produced with recycled or sustainable materials as much as possible and are ethically small batch produced locally, overseas or by myself. Once they sell out, I move on the the next. With each collection focusing on trend, color, fun and uniqueness!

Thank you so much for finding your way to my page and reviewing my collections. Preston and James means the world to me and I'm honored by each and every one of you that supports and believes in me. Thank you so much for shopping and supporting small. 

Xo, Evette
