XCVI was founded in 1996 (or XCVI in roman numerals) from the back of a mom-and-pop clothing boutique on Melrose Avenue. Together with designer Lilia Gorodnitski, the Zeltzer family manifested a shared vision of casual clothing that enrich women’s lives with joy and ease.

Our Mission:

Our clothing isn’t made to be worn on the runway, or to be meticulously styled for hours. Our clothing isn’t disposable fast-fashion, and we are not trend obsessed. XCVI is committed to making casual contemporary clothes for real women, who want clothing for real life.

Our Promise:

For nearly 25 years, we've continued to develop wearable, breathable, movable clothing for women who believe that style should not compromise comfort.

No gimmicks. No stunts or PR tricks. Just high quality, stylish clothing meant for busy schedules in the face of "I have five places to be in one hour" challenges.

Since 1996, we've been designing styles that effortlessly complement your journey through the maze of life. Whether you've always been a fashionista, or you're just now discovering your sense of style - your clothes are your self expression. We design versatile clothes that you can fully live in, because they make you feel good. 

XCVI is fashion you can live in.
