About Vancity Original®
The Vancity Original® Brand was established in 1998 by Mister Martini, a Vancouver local, street wear retailer and tastemaker. He was the co-owner of one of the first Hip Hop shops in Canada, which sold records, clothing, graffiti supplies, b-boy videos, and mix tapes, that went by the name, F.W.U.H. (F**K WHAT U HEARD).
The brand name literally came off the back of an F.W.U.H. shop logo tee shirt which said, “Vancity Original EST. 1994” on the back, in reference to the originality of the shop, its Vancouver roots, and the year it was established. In 1998, the Vancity Original® Brand was born. 20 years and hundreds of designs later, Vancity Original® has become a staple fashion brand for Vancouver locals, international travellers, fashionistas, and celebrities.
The Vancity Original® Brand has been based in historic Chinatown for the past 6 years and this also marks the 6th instalment of their Chinatown Collection which has been a yearly staple for the brand. Vancity Original® can also be seen yearly leading the Lunar New Year parade as the firecracker truck through the streets of Chinatown.
