The Next Native launched in early 2017 as a online boutique specializing in bohemian clothing. Next Native is a concept created by Cara Sipan through her genuine admiration of her upbringing as a 6th generation southern California native. Her mother—a free spirit and musician—traveled around on horseback giving vaccinations to more than 2000 people in South America. She spent the 1980s in the Peace Corps, and hasn’t slowed down her humanitarian efforts since. Cara’s father—a Ramones-loving surfer who stitched his own cowhide patchwork bell bottoms in his 20s—took a deep dive into the architecture of Santa Fe and the American southwest which lead him to become a true master of Spanish and Pueblo homes and restaurants.
Through the artistic and cultural influence of her parents, Cara was encouraged to develop her creativity, seek inspiration, and explore the outdoors. Her unique upbringing and the quirky fashion aesthetic of both her parents was coupled with a genuine desire to be close to nature. As a model, artist, and business grad herself, Cara has always had an eye for design, style, color, and texture. Therefore, her transition into the fashion business was an easy one.
When Cara decided to enter the world of fashion, she wanted to create a unique marketplace that would represent the artistic aesthetic, exciting travels, and creative experiences that led her here while giving back to nature conservation causes that are close to her heart. The result: on online boutique offering a unique and exciting collection of brands that seek to inspire other women to be themselves confidently, to enjoy the native beauty all around us, and to look and feel good doing it. The Next Native is committed to donating a portion of proceeds to The Nature Conservancy, an organization that protects the native landscapes around us.
