Thank you for visiting Jessica Diane! We are so excited that you are joining us on this journey.
Like so many of you, I strive to have it all while balancing work and family. I grew up with a large family in a small town. My mom taught me how to sew, to be self-sufficient and to live creatively. My dad taught me how to work smart, to work hard, and to dream big.
Influenced by the exciting, bustling energy of downtown Chicago and drawing from my personal needs and experiences, I developed a concept and design. My kitchen table quickly morphed into a design den with patterns, swatches, materials, and research that covered every inch of the table.
Before I knew it, my napkin sketch became our flagship bag, the Diamanti. I launched Jessica Diane in mid 2014 and donated my very first bag to the Make-A-Wish Foundation; this was such a special moment in my career. The concept turned into my design blueprint: functional chic, versatile, and contemporary with utmost quality.
This blueprint is the driving force behind our growing collection. City living, traveling, and a packed schedule continue to inspire my designs. I am passionate about giving back to the community and empowering women. This is why we support sustainable American design. Our bags are handcrafted in New York with 99% of our materials being sourced from U.S. suppliers.
I believe a bag is much more than a bag. It’s intimate to a woman: it houses what’s personal to her, carries her daily emergency kit, portrays confidence, speaks to her personality, and makes a statement. Understanding this, our brand focuses on meeting the needs of multifaceted women and empowering them through fashion as they design the life they love.
We hope that you’ll continue with us on this journey! Stay tuned – much more to come!
