“I started out making clothing for myself and friends in the kitchen of my first apartment in LA. I’ve never been one of those girls who loves to shop. For myself, it has always been preferable to have an idea and realize that in to a tangible object. If I wanted a specific garment I would always just try to make it, even though my sewing skills were not amazing at that time.
I was making one of a kind pieces and putting them in consignment shops around Los Angeles and in San Francisco. Every month I sold more pieces. Eventually started making proper collections and offering standard size options.” - Jessica Louise Thompson @jlbeaverton
