About Nikita & Vesper
2 sisters. 2 styles and ONE GOAL - To provide YOU with the best curated ethical fashion out there.
One of us (Kelsey: Code Name 'Vesper') loves the funky, sexy boho chic styles of the 60's, 70's and 80's.
The other (Courtney: Code Name 'Nikita') loves the classic lines and fit of the 40's and 50's.
You'll find both styles in our shop.
Everything we sell is ethical in some way. We are obsessed with vintage (because it is so darn good for the environment) and supporting local artisans from around the world. You'll find both types of products in our shop.
I mean...why shouldn't fashion help save the world? We believe it can.
We update this website with new finds almost every day. We sell internationally.

Meet the Founders
The Montague sisters, Kelsey and Courtney, are the co-founders and owners of Nikita & Vesper. Kelsey, our Chief Creative Director, is an artist and a skilled social media strategist. Courtney, our Operations Director is a digital strategist and veteran nonprofit executive (co-founder of Global Volunteer Network Foundation - an international development nonprofit).
In 2008, while Courtney was working with her partners in Kenya, Kelsey joined her sister to film a documentary about international volunteers. The sisters were blown away by the work community leaders and entrepreneurs were doing to support women & children. They were also impressed with the artisanal accessories and clothing they came across and how critically important these small businesses were to their communities.
Afterwards both sisters moved to New York City where Courtney worked for a number of years in digital strategy with a specific focus on social innovation and using technology for good. Kelsey worked for a number of years in social media strategy, event design and illustration. Kelsey's work has been featured by MTV, Buzzfeed, Refinery 29, Mashable, Taylor Swift and Vanessa Hudgens.
In 2013 the Montague sisters decided to take the plunge and start their own business.
They combined their passions for art, digital strategy, fashion and social change by starting an online social enterprise that sources women’s apparel and accessories that are all ethical in some way. And so was born Nikita & Vesper!
