Welcome to Allen Avenue
it all started back in 2003 when Candace Allen, set out to create accessories that represented a creative, and unique lifestyle. Tired of going to events and seeing people with the same clothes, and style she wanted to create something that was not only different, but that made a statement without having to say a word. C.Originals was born. A fashion accessories business, that tailored to women's accessories such as purses, brooches, and shoe clips.
In 2005 the cry came from the male crowd who also wanted unique men's accessories that they could call their own. So Allen started creating bow-ties and pocket squares that looked good, but were unique in fabric patterns and helped to shape the style of men both young and old.
Candace's talents went far beyond just fashion accessories alone, a lover of hair she always dabbled in doing the latest style not only to herself, but to friends and family. She was in love with the idea that a simple hairstyle could not only change the outer appearance, but change the inner self. She also dabbled in the Event planning industry, creating the company Astre Events, as a certified wedding and event planner creating beautiful events that left a lasting impression.
Juggling three different businesses not only became a daunting task, but also confusing and difficult to maintain. . We encourage you to think of Rodeo Drive. The popular street houses top of line brands that specialize in name and quality. With that same mind set, wanting to create a brand that not only represented her namesake but a lifestyle that could be positively represented, with a high standard of quality, we now present Allen Avenue
Through it all, the mantra has remained the same. A passion for style, fashion and lifestyle. Never loosing sight of who we are: creative style, unique touch and a passion for making others feel good still shapes all that is Allen Avenue.
