The Woman: Iritisen is a vintage curator from the Southside of Chicago, Il with a passion for creating a space for plus size women to be free from fear so they bloom confidently. In 2019 she launched Lineage for Vintage lovers and trendsetters. Iritisen is heavily influenced by the black family and her late Mother, Lise. She holds her memory in high regard, crediting her for showing what humility and determination will earn you. Lise would bring her daughter with her to Antique shops, always reminding her that the older pieces of furniture or clothes are the more character it has, and she always told her to "buy quality pieces - make an investment in yourself ". Her momma trained her well, with the same heart she works diligently to ensure that every collection is high quality, a statement piece and that stories of our ancestors will continue to be told through Lineage Vintage. Iritisen is motivated to make others feel good, look good and be cherished.
