About the designer

Jessica Jones has been passionate about everything creative since she was a child. She has always been happiest when she is creating, no matter what medium.

She taught herself to sew as a teenager, frustrated at the limited clothing options available in stores. From there, Jessica realised that she could create anything that she was able to imagine and so she threw herself into sewing her heart out. By the time she graduated high school she was determined to follow her heart and pursue a career in fashion.

After school she completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Western Australia, wanting to develop a solid art foundation to bring to her future fashion studies. This education proved to be immensely beneficial, and to this day her designs are often inspired by her background in the art world. She is particularly fond of the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Noveau and Romanticism, all of which have had an influence on her design aesthetic.

Jessica then pursued the Applied Fashion Design and Technology course at Polytechnic West, completing three years of study which culminated in the Umbra graduate showcase and her graduate collection, Vanitas.

Jessica is currently completing the Associate Degree of Fashion Business and plans to launch Tempest Eve fully in 2016.
