    Originally from Switzerland, Elvira Kud started out as a jewelry designer and residential interior-designer.  She first landed in Los Angeles, but by the time she made her way down to Orange County, she wanted to take her creativity in a new direction - beyond her design work.  It was then that she created ANTHILL shopNplay.  Behind the doors of this magical 7,000 sq. foot space, ANTHILL is an eclectic concept store that has everything from specially chosen kids clothing, toys, books, crafts and baby products to housewares, home decor, furniture and art with women's and men's fashion.  More recently, you can find a remarkable collection of one-of-a-kind vintage couture pieces in her new concept KUD Vintage, located upstairs in the Anthill Fashion Market.

    What started as a passion has evolved into a career for the Swiss-born founder of Anthill shopNplay, Elvira Kud.  Born and raised in Geneva, Elvira has a background in Public Relations and Marketing with a knack for Interior Design, where she spent the majority of her time until taking a leap of faith to activate her dream of creating a concept store after moving to the states.  "Being a busy working mom of three boys and knowing how women love shopping, I thought it would be nice to have a place to spend quality time together while combining activities that all enjoy."  Anthill is more than a boutique - it's a lifestyle, a place where all family members can shop, play, have fun and just be together.

    U&C Magazine spent a day at AntHill Shop N Play in Costa Mesa and had the opportunity to sit down with Elvira Kid, the creative genius behind this fabulous store. Originally from Switzerland, she sticks out like a sore thumb in Orange County, as she’s the perfect blend of classy and eccentric, fierce yet soft. Some days, you may find her dripping in Gucci from head-to-toe while other days, you will spot her in an eclectic mix of brands that she carries in the women’s section of this sprawling diamond in the rough. She’s a fierce Lioness wrapped in a small package, with a soft-spoken accent and a larger than life personality and a vision that’s so far beyond what most people could even begin to fathom. This store is not like the rest of them, so don’t be blind to this gem, especially if you have kids, who will surely be on their best behavior if they’re rewarded with a trip to AntHill Shop N Play.
