Sifted takes the legwork and headache out of vintage shopping. Aileen hand-picks each item, cleans and restores it for you so that it is in ready to wear condition. She knows how daunting and tiring the task is of going through thrift stores to find your prized gem. She is very passionate about it. In fact it is quite therapeutic and such a thrill when she scores a good find.
Aileen Telesforo is Director and creative force behind Sifted located in Toronto, Canada. She started out thrift shopping with her parents as a young one, and began collecting for the sheer joy of it.
She loves all things vintage especially the Art Deco and Retro eras, and continues to search the land for quality items with you in mind.
Ever-evolving, Aileen loves to create one-offs via her wearables line, Ama & Ina. As she is heavily influenced by her parents' way of dress while she was growing up, how fitting to name her label after them. Ama & Ina is simply put: father and mother in Tagalog, the Filipino language.
These limited editions and ONE of ONE pieces will be making their way into the shop very soon! Please stay tuned via the "follow us" icons below.
