About J.Monk

The common definition of Fashionista is a devoted follower of fashion, and that is what I once claimed to be.

I do indeed follow fashion, but I also contribute to the art of fashion. As a 23 year old designer with a degree in textiles and apparel I have competed in several competitions and executed 2 lines of original designs as well as single garments.

My focus on my site is to shine the spotlight on local designers and break down what’s haute and what’s not. As consumers we invest enough into the art of fashion, but do any of us know the humble beginnings of designers? Fashion speaks volume all around us. Fashion is so broad that it will always have something to say, so lets start a conversation.
