An afternoon with Natasha Zoe Garret of Roam Vintage



Photography by Chris Gonzales



Natasha Zoe Garrett has a cultivated a keen eye for seeking out beauty. Her online vintage shop, roam vintage, is as beautifully curated as it is aesthetically alluring. In her own words, “each item is hand picked with an intention for you to bring new life to pieces with a story all their own”. As Roam has grown into a beloved destination for vintage hunters, Garrett has used her platform to highlight the importance of black owned businesses and voices. Natasha was captured in her element by her talented friend and photographer Chris Gonzales.  We hope to see more businesses valuing slow fashion and socially conscious ideals in the future. Check out Roam Vintage to see her latest vintage drop!

Where do you draw inspiration from?

I draw my inspiration from the world around me. Primarily through my travels. Traveling is the one time in life where I feel absolutely present, as I engage with new surroundings. It allows me to absorb so much more of the world than when I am in my daily life.

I am inspired by natural landscapes, architecture, traditional arts and crafts, rituals and by the people I meet on my journeys. We have all shared a profound shift in our lives the past few months with Covid 19.

How has your daily life changed during this time?

Everything is centered around the home more than usual these days. I work from home, exercise from home and spend much more time there than I ever had before. I’ve had to learn how to continue to find motivation and inspiration from a much more rooted perspective than I am used to. That being said, it’s become all the more important for me to have a warm, loving and inspiring home environment.

Where is home for you?

Home, for me, is where my loved ones are. It’s wherever I’ve spent time living and loving and making memories. My first home, and the one dearest to my heart, is the Bay Area. I was born and raised in San Francisco and Marin County. Fog rolling over the bay and between the redwoods is my natural habitat. I couldn’t be more grateful to call it home. I spent seven years living in New York and the last four in Los Angeles. Both are a form of home to me and all hold a special place in my heart.

What inspires you most?




What advice would you offer to your younger self?

Trust the process. Trust in yourself and that you are on the right path. Stop caring so much about what others think and never stop dreaming big.

What are you dreaming of?

I’m dreaming of a future that is healthy and bright for all of the world. I’m dreaming of a clean and thriving natural landscape and of an awakened population of humans who honor and respect each other and the ground they walk on.
