Jennifer's sense of design springs from childhood days spent in her mother's vintage clothing store in St. Louis, Missouri. After graduating high school she enrolled at the University of Missouri - Columbia in the school of Textile and Apparel Management. Her studies focused on the business of fashion, fashion design and construction. She also gained extensive knowledge of theatrical costuming and historical clothing design.
Her university studies were completed at the London College of Fashion. After finishing her studies at LCF, she remained in London working with leading European milliners. Returning to the United States, Jennifer continued to gain production experience and further developed her individual design vision working with several important American milliners.
