Jaclyn is available for work

Fashion Designer, Creative Entrepreneur, and Communications / Marketing Specialist for RTW and luxury womenswear companies.

Highly skilled Communications Specialist and Business Strategist who changed careers during the pandemic to pursue lifelong love of fashion design. Completed intensive program that included garment construction, collection development, mood boards and image research, technical drawing, trend analysis and forecasting, materials and textile research, product development, and illustration in Italy. I learned in a very short amount of time how to utilize style direction and codes of a brand to create collections.

As Miuccia Prada says that "fashion is an instant language," and I believe words are equally as powerful with branding, messaging, and connecting with a product's consumer. My attention to detail with marketing and proofreading for public relations companies and ability to fact-check quickly has helped companies with marketing collateral and press releases.

Creative Entrepreneur and Upcycling Product Innovation: upcycled denim products that are re-imagined into one of a kind, upcycled statement pieces. We sell to two boutiques in Marin County, California currently and are growing our online presence on Instagram @jaclynomaradesigns
