Jacoba Jane was founded in 2019 with what began as a small studio, later evolving into an eponymous brand that now ships worldwide. Our process is based on the artisanal systems of the past, where ideas were interpreted and brought to life by tactical means such as draping on a dress form, and the finished product was a testament to the technically skilled hands that brought it to life. These values guide our work and provide a roadmap for each collection.
Sourcing fabrics is one of my favourite parts of the design process, second only to pattern making. The architecture of a garment and how we can take a one dimensional piece of fabric and mould it to a three dimensional body in so many different ways-- this is so exciting to me.
I enjoy exploring dichotomies in my work - how something can be both elegant and easygoing, understated yet exuberant.
