The McClay twins founded Naven in 2008 after completing their degrees in Los Angeles. The twins being of Irish descent used the Irish city of Navan as inspiration for their company name, and thus gained their title “The Naven Twins”. Though Naven finds its roots in Los Angeles, and is characterized as a Southern California brand, the line embodies a touch of European influence stemming from the twins background, such as classic silhouettes and clean lines. The twin’s vision behind “the Naven girl” is a confident, empowered woman, who uses color and fashion forward fits expressed in their wardrobe. Naven’s success is attributed to a large celebrity following of young Hollywood starlets, as well as a solid store list of department stores, specialty and ecommerce retailers.
