Chic Haven Home of the Trendsetters

The Fine Art Of Design

This past weekend, a very knowledgeable woman told me about the vintage clothing store, The Fine Art Of Design; so, off I went on this beautiful adventure.

As I walked into the store – which is located at 73717 Highway 111, Palm Desert, CA- a feeling of euphoria came over me. I was in heaven haven, Chic Haven. They had a great collection of dresses, outerwear, shoes and purses. They carry mainly designer clothing and accessories- Chanel, Dior, Moschino, Todd Oldham, Escada, etc all at affordable prices. At first glance, one can immediately tell that every piece in the store is carefully selected, classic, and of great quality.

After spending over an hour in the store – and receiving great customer service from store owner, Nicholas Delgado- I purchased three sale items at a huge discount. Can I stress that Nicholas was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable on vintage designer clothing. Every item tag was dated! Very impressive. As we chatted, I found out that he studied Fashion History, has a great love for Moschino, and is very thorough with the store selection and with the pieces he accepts for consignment.

You can check out his Etsy store (which has a limited collection), or If ever you are in the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area, be sure to drop by the store and also check out some other local attractions.

Here’s a Eat, Play, & Shop list I grabbed from the store:
