Last week we heard Iman say at a 92Y event that there are no young black designers. The designers behind Pepper Jacques would like to counter that point and say that, "we are here". As designers who dare to enter into the fashion space they know that they have set a high hurdle to climb as the cost barrier to entry into general fashion is high already and luxury fashion is simply mind boggling. They are also a brand that looks to stray for the traditional fashion operations path by embracing sizes 0-22 as one brand. We are not a misses brand. We are not a plus brand. We are simply a modern inclusive fashion brand. We are also redefining shopping experiences using technology, breaking away from seasonality & pursuing pop ups as business model versus brick and mortar locations.
They have an event coming up on 10/2/15 where they will showcases pieces from their collection while raising money for the American Cancer Society. Even as a young brand, they have built giving back into the ethos of Pepper Jacques. Learn more about the event at http://www.pepperjacques.com/resort-escape/
