Our company's journey began long before our founders launched it. One of our co-founders was managing fifteen fashion accessory stores in shopping malls located in Southern California as a district manager. Despite presenting many ideas for improving the stores he managed, most of them fell through in a chain of cooperation. Together with his wife, they began to imagine what it would be like to open their own store, what they would name it; and the name Awkward Styles was created in 2011. Following his separation from the company in 2013, the couple founded the company in 2014, where they were able to put all of their ideas into practice.

Questions From You
Awkward Styles' original logo was created in 2014 for a kids' apparel collection, and this is how the green tree frog with a paint pallet came to be. When we rebranded in 2017, we wanted to stay true to our spirit of embracing uniqueness while also welcoming the new facets of our growing brand. Our second logo was designed to combine our brand name and the Green Tree Frog's anatomy.
