WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR DESIGN INSPIRATIONS? TO WHAT DO YOU CREDIT YOUR CREATIVITY? My creativity is mostly inspired by nature, architecture, and observing different cultures; the colors and moods that they offer are amazingly motivating. For this reason, I enjoy taking time off for traveling and sightseeing. WHAT TYPE OF WOMAN WEARS YOUR BRAND? Women that wear aJeanté are beautiful, elegant and appreciate the finer things in life. WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST IN THE WORLD OF FASHION? There are a few designers, and fashion personalities who have inspired me over the years, however, Giorgio Armani has caught my attention the most. GIVE US A HINT ABOUT YOUR NEXT COLLECTION. I started working on sketches for my next collection, after being inspired while on vacation in Milan, Italy; I will be unfolding details about this collection over the next few months. WHAT SETS YOUR LABEL APART? I do not follow trends or fads; my designs are timeless pieces that reflect my energetic creativity. WHERE ARE YOUR CLOTHES CURRENTLY SOLD? aJeanté designs are available in resort boutiques. HOW IMPORTANT DO YOU THINK FASHION IS IN THE LIFE OF CARIBBEAN PEOPLE? Like our music and art, fashion tells our story, it translates our culture and lifestyle. WHAT’S NEXT FOR aJeanté The future is looking bright for aJeanté. I am presently working towards introducing aJeanté to a new international market; I am excited about this and hope to share details in the near future. aJeanté at Caribbean Fashion Week Feel free to contact aJeanté: Jean-Marie K.
