JAZMEEN is redefining contemporary sophistication for women with curves. Born out of designer Jazmin Jackson’s lifelong love of fashion, JAZMEEN is an American fashion company specializing in dresses and pants catered to curvy women of various sizes. With a contemporary sophistication, JAZMEEN incorporates luxurious fabrics with bold prints & rich colors to flattering lines & silhouettes, focusing on making women feel good about themselves. Sophisticated and youthful, the line embodies self confidence with an effortless vibe.
Convinced from the age of ten that fashion design was her calling, Jazmin ripped clippings out of fashion magazines, sketched designs constantly, and learned how to sew from her grandmother (a professional dressmaker who had previously worked in the factories). She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she also studied costume design, fashion patternmaking and draping under the university’s graduate costume production program. Upon graduation from UNC – Chapel Hill in 2008, she moved to Pittsburgh and entered the corporate world working while saving money to build her company from the ground up, while simultaneously experiencing firsthand the fashionable needs of today’s professional woman.
Tired of the lack of sophisticated and stylish clothing for women with curvy figures, Jazmin noticed a gap in the marketplace of womenswear. After two years of people-watching and observing how poorly clothes fit women, Jazmin leased a studio developing patterns that fit and flatter curvy women of various sizes. With her love of bold color, prints, and beautiful clothes that are well made, JAZMEEN was born. “I love dressing in contradiction – feminine & masculine, modern and timeless, bold prints and subdued colors.”
