NEW YORK (April 4, 2019)
Designer Jody Tjan has official released her Spring and Summer 2019 collection.
The collection features beautiful velvet pieces, along with bright whites and dresses that boast sexy, retro spaghetti straps – all exciting trends for the spring season.
Jody Tjan has been working in the garment business since 1986.
First as a teenager at her parents’ sewing factories in New York City and now for her own fashion brand.
After realizing law school wasn’t for her and that her true calling remained in fashion, Jody applied for fashion colleges and was accepted to F.I.T.. Following college, she began a successful career in the business.
She has since worked at Tracy Reese, rag & bone, Protagonist, as well as a hand–beading atelier with clients including Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Escada, Ralph Lauren, Manolo Blahnik, Vera Wang and others.
Taking all the skills she has gained in the industry and more than 25 years‘ experience, last year Tjan launched her own sustainable luxury fashion label featuring curated styles for the modern woman.
Her eponymous label is a sustainable and ethical fashion brand that focuses on locally sourced and manufactured styles. Her decision to take the dive, after so many years in the industry, was stirred up from her deep love for fashion and what she identified as the industry’s need for more genuine and passionate sustainable brands.
Sustainability is currently an important topic in the fashion industry. While many popular brands are addressing the issue of waste and adopting better practices, Jody Tjan is a brand that from its founding was formed from the core principles of sustainability. The brand is praised by customers and tastemakers alike for its ingenious practices that combat waste, like offering made-to-order pieces and exclusive designs made from leftover or discarded materials, without compromising its smart and beautiful style.
“We are a brand that focuses on making clothing that fits the everyday global cosmopolitan woman, who needs versatile fashion for easy styling on the go,” said Tjan.
Her goal is to continuously make season-less and versatile styles for women who want easy dressing but also for each item to feel special. All Jody Tjan pieces are designed, crafted and engineered to help the everyday woman feel confident.
Only having officially launched a year ago, Jody Tjan’s designs have already become a fashion go-to for many stylish social media influencers like The Marcy Stop, The Middle Page, and Aysha Sow. She looks forward to many exciting collaborations in the future.
