Jacqueline Myles is a self-taught designer from Philadelphia PA. Her aesthetic is men, women, and children's clothing. The primary focus is being men and women's high-fashion ready-to-wear, Couture and custom design. Her design style is a mixture of classic, modern, retro and at times edgy. Though she doesn't tend to follow trends she is often ahead of the industry in the areas of color and shape. She is heavily influenced by her love for Fashion and beautiful fabrics from classic movies and days gone by. She says, "When I decide to focus on a collection my process is going into the fabric stores and letting the fabrics speak to me". She prefers to let the fabrics she comes in contact with determine which direction she'll take her collection in. The textures, patterns, weight and movement of the fabric dictates what it should become. On occasion, Jacqueline is known to make mini collections form unconventional materials. As in, her chain mail collection.
