J.A.D.E.S Galleria - DC Fashion Week Collection

J.A.D.E.S Galleria Designer

Designer Deneen Watson talks about her experience as a designer and attending DC Fashion Week. 

Cindy Jean: Why did you become a designer?

Deneen Watson: The passion has always been in me to become a fashion designer. When I was six, my favorite thing to do was to create clothing for paper dolls.

 I loved mixing different colors and shapes in order to achieve a unique outcome. I continued to cultivate my love for fashion through all my years of schooling. I took sewing classes in order to learn more about my craft. During my senior year of high school I was accepted into the Teen Vogue Fashion University program. That was very exciting for me. That program solidified for me that my future was in fashion.

Jean: What are your muses/ influences/ inspiration?

Watson: I find inspiration everywhere. I can see a flower on the ground or a painting on a wall and be inspired to develop garments that highlight the features of what I have seen. My favorite place to take inspiration from is nature. Everything is organic and unique. My most recent collection was based on the beach. For example the way the waves move and how the sea breeze blows.

Jean: What made you take fashion more seriously and make a career out of it?

Watson: I definitely have many interests including business and science, more specifically chemistry. Fashion is what I feel deep in my heart of hearts I was called to do. Although I dabbled in other career options, my passion for fashion burned with a fury deep down inside of me. I answered the call and here I am today.

Jean: What is your brand? & how has your brand evolved?

Watson: J.A.D.E.S. Galleria is a brand that specializes in custom wedding dresses and special occasion wear. Beautifully and simply designed, J.A.D.E.S. Galleria creates garments that portray a "Classic Elegance with a Modern Twist". J.A.D.E.S. Galleria is a brand that represents a confident and unique woman. One who is not afraid to march to the beat of her own drum. The jade stone represents love, eternity, and peace. These are all elements a J.A.D.E.S. woman exudes. 

Because my brand is in the beginning stages of development, it has not evolved as of yet. Of course as the years go by, I plan to evolve and expand my business. Ultimately, J.A.D.E.S. Galleria will be a brand that will be recognized worldwide and will be a constant trend influencer.
