What’s New at ICJUK.com


Claire Jane Vranian—the creative force behind ICJUK—is one of the hardest working individuals in the fashion industry. When she is not creating new designs and graphics for her tees, she’s out seeking additional goodies to offer her customers or looking for ways to expand her brand and she does it all with grace and ease. In fact, she still packs and ships all orders and includes a handwritten note with each.

Having started out as Inspired by Claire Jane the company has since evolved to include several business lines. Claire’s vintage feathered handbags and elegant fascinators are the ultimate in rocker chic and represent the Inspired by Claire Jane “wearable art” collection.

Celebrating the launch of their eCommerce site Aryn K set up a pop-up shop at the historic Regent Theater in Downtown Los Angeles.



A number of fashion loving individuals attended the event in order to shop the L.A. based contemporary brand’s fashion forward looks. In addition to scoring some great deals, guests mingled in the Love Song Bar, grooved to tunes spun by DJ Val Fleury, received make-up touch ups, posed for pictures in the photobooth, and enjoyed complimentary Neapolitan-style pizza  from  Prufrock Pizzeria.



It was a great way to spend a Sunday. In addition to movies and concerts the Regent also hosts a variety of events such as The Rock ‘n’ Roll Flea Market and Sunday Funday Boozy Brunch Bingo.
