Chantell Moulin Nighswonger
VIDA | MOULIN
After years in fashion PR and marketing, Chantell Moulin Nighswonger started VIDA | MOULIN in 2016 with the intention of bringing unique, trend-forward fashion to the Valley. Influenced by online retailers, such as Revolve and Shopbop, it was important that VIDA | MOULIN had a quick and constantly changing inventory introduced monthly to customers with editorial-style photography and lookbooks. Moulin Nighswonger later would take the lessons learned as a retail shop owner, and along with her husband and family’s investment group, Moulin Group, would spend the past several years redeveloping a mid-1960s office building in North Central Phoenix. The now open curated shopping center, named The Frederick on Missouri, houses VIDA | MOULIN along with eight other small, locally-owned businesses. @chantellmoulin @vidamoulin
