Dear Clients, Friends and Family,
After three years of an adventure as rich as it is intense for VOILA, I decided to close our beautiful location in Noe Valley.
VOILA was born from my desire of mixing FASHION + NAILS + FLORAL to offer a unique experience in a clean and safe environment rethinking the nail industry to what you truly deserve. Sustainable practices, quality, serenity and simplicity.
During all these years, I have taken a lot of pleasure selecting for you my favorite products and non toxic brands sourcing from an emerging and growing slow fashion and clean beauty industry, and finding new creative and singular brands to collaborate with was a dream come true as a fashion designer myself. Every day, my team and I worked with love and care on each of our orders and bookings: most of you walked in as perfect strangers and left as friends.♡//
We loved discovering your booking requests everyday, advising you, sharing life experiences and beyond offering a service, together talking about travels as inspiration, women empowerment, green business and sustainability and seeing manifestations of a vision unfolding daily was a real delight.
We took a great pleasure staging our space and showcase your favorite products, creating nail arts and borrowing your beautiful hands on each of our photos, to inspire you and share a little of the VOILA vibe with the rest of the world from March 2016 to now March 2019. Three years in the making, in which I put a lot of energy and passion that made me grow as ever, this new version of me, all in body, mind spirit is so grateful for all the people I met along the way and the lessons learned .♡//
Today, we’ve managed to build a real brand identity and a beautiful community around VOILA , all thanks to You!
Entrepreneurship remains an interesting yet a complex path, and despite an ever increasing number of bookings, profitability remains today too fragile for us to decide to continue this adventure at this location: 1431 Castro Street.
So, today more than ever, we wanted to thank you for being so many to follow us in this great adventure, you who have brought us so much and inspired me as a founder of VOILA, beyond measure.
Thank you for your loyalty during these three years, for your kindness and for your sweet, precious words, which accompanied me on a daily basis.
We are closing this location with a head full of memories, many stars in the eyes, a warm heart and an obvious emotion, but also with a certain pride to see what VOILA became today. While we are actively looking for another location in San Francisco, we are thrilled to introduce you to our very own Vegan Nail Polish Line. ♡//
Please have a look at our Kickstarter campaign and share the love. This is my gift to the industry. I hope you’ll enjoy this collection of 5 colors as much as I had enjoyed every steps of this first nail polish collection.
This site will definitely remains open, so you’ll have a way to always stay tuned on when and where the adventure is leading us to bring our magic next !
Thanks again for everything and see you soon ♡//
-Aline Dazogbo, owner/founder.
