Having been originally inspired from 11 different countries during the Founder’s travels throughout college, a new found wonder was discovered. The 8th Wonder of the World arrives with a multitude of vibes and encompasses the beauty of travel and fashion in a new way. 12th Tribe embraces style for the global soul and provides a collection hand picked by our Tribe, each piece in mind for the girls on the go.
12th Tribe was founded October 2014 by 21 year old Demi Marchese as she was finishing College. 6 Months later she moved to Los Angeles, CA to further pursue her dream in the fashion industry and since has been fortunate to work amongst, Bea Miller, Nick Jonas, Christen Press and more. The vibes of the tribe continue to grow and we welcome you to bring new ones along.
Our vision is to provide independent women, worldwide with comfortable style and the confidence to grab life by the horns; to build a place where trendsetters, entrepreneurs, athletes, musicians, and creatives feel free to bring alive their style together as one. We’re welcoming this tribe and all of the vibes in it with open arms. We have your back just like you have ours We envision a future together where through style and travel, inspiration and motivation will transpire.
After graduating San Diego State University in May 2014, Demi had a diploma in hand, a small amount of celebratory grad money, and an idea she was temped to chase. Unlike traditional routes taken with the prized post grad gifts, Demi invested what she had into a few vintage denim Levi shorts, one of a kind jewelry and a hand selected collection of some of her favorite unique finds. She took the little she knew about coding (yes, from our Myspace days), and went to work on putting together an e-commerce shop for her friends to browse and snag her favorite styles. As an extension to her self made blog, Demi launched online boutique 12th Tribe.
Demi has built 12th Tribe into a space filled with what she was coveting most. While staying up to date with current trends, Demi also believes that style is what stays, and with that are the versatile and transcending pieces 12th Tribe provides. As the Head Buyer and Stylist for the Tribe’s clothing and jewelry, Demi aims to bring together her inspiration from traveling to 11 countries, her California native lifestyle, and everything else in between. Being in her young 20s, Demi has been blessed to meet and style thousands of girls worldwide through 12th Tribe Pop up’s, email and social media. Her inspiration to continue the tribe? You.
