About Us

Founded by two girls who have been friends for over a decade, Nikka Aquino and Pauline Dang created KIYO through a shared love of vintage and archive designer pieces. Their aim was to bridge a gap and offer what Toronto was missing - to make designer handbags and accessories accessible through their unique collection of vintage pieces and build a community of vintage lovers, alike. 
Through the love of art, fashion and design - all items sourced by KIYO reflects our own personal identity. We aim to empower women by providing access to unique vintage handbags and accessories that allow them to express their creativity and personal style.
Driven by sustainability, we encourage circular spending and are committed to doing our part to help reduce the harmful effects of the fashion industry. We strive to inspire our customers to embrace a more conscious and mindful approach to fashion. Find more about our commitment to sustainability here.
