Jenn Cole, a Successful Entrepreneur and Fashion Designer of more than two decades, is no stranger to the world of Bridal Fashion. A Fashion Pioneer, she opened the doors to the first black owned Bridal Salon and Atelier in Mississippi where she also produced Bridal and Fashion Shows. A breath of fresh air in NYC, Jenn honed her craft through study at The Art Institute of New York City and her work at the Historical Library of the Iconic Ralph Lauren. She now couples her passion for design with her unrivaled ability to create bespoke pieces that bring every bride’s vision to life.
In her Debut Collection, Jenn Cole marries fine styling and sleek silhouettes to create a line of ready-to-wear gowns full feminine flair. Weaving classic and contemporary elements with, playful lace and popping accents, she puts a refreshing spin on simplistic designs that flatter brides on their special day. Jenn pampers brides as she partners with them to create a bespoke wedding day look and a service experience fit for royalty.
Jenn Cole’s lifelong dream of becoming a NY fashion designer began when she was a young girl watching her mother sew to care for her and her six siblings. Jenn started sewing at the age of twelve and followed fashion throughout her life. She operated a successful Bridal & Formalwear Design and Tailoring business in Mississippi for 14 years while raising two young sons but soon, her ambition outgrew her environment.
With her sons off to college, Jenn set out to create the life she always envisioned. Inspired by Coco Chanel and fueled by a determination to live out the dream her mother could not, Jenn traded her comfortable life in Mississippi for the dorms of a NYC Fashion School. In 2010, she boarded a plane for the first time and landed in New York with her faith, $3000 and the fortitude to make it. Jenn believes her love for designing makes her good at what she does. For Jenn Cole, designing is not just a job. It’s her passion, her calling. It’s her whole life!
