Jessica Louise is Located DTLA and has been running her business there for over a decade. She has been designing under her own brand name since 2004 first only selling wholesale, then online until eight years ago opening a physical boutique and then a private studio.
Jessica Louise’s custom clothing designs, much like the artist herself, are equal parts punk rock power and fairy- tale girlyness.
Her Fashion-forward collection of apparel and accessories mixes assertive patterns, bright colors, and punk staples such as leopard print with feminine ribbons and bows, lace and ruffle to create a unique fashion statement that has made Jessica Louise a frontrunner in the street fashion scene.
About the designer:
Jessica’s career in design was born of her desire for a ‘functional but fancy’ wardrobe that adequately expressed her individuality. As the product of an artistic family, with a clothing designer for a godmother, and a professional artist and art professor for a mother, the creative life came naturally to her.
Basic formal training in the arts, and her years of experience working for style icon Betsey Johnson, gave Jessica Louise a solid foundation from which to take on the fashion industry, but her thriving apparel business has been built largely through work and hands-on experience.
Jessica Louise draws energy and inspiration from her close network of friends and associates who are creators’ themselves-artists, musicians, jewelry designers, and the like.
The line also reflects the designer’s admiration for Japanese pop culture; adorably quirky, anime-style characters adorn many of the pieces in the collection.
As with the best examples of Japanese streetwear, Jessica Louise designs take a ‘no rules’ approach to fashion, mixing patterns and stripes, skulls with hearts, camouflage with flirty details like lace trim and bows.
