Welcome! We would love to share and show you who we are, and what we do…
JASMINE WANG is a new and exciting fashion label that embraces and celebrates the beauty and femininity in women. Our designs, inspired by nature, feature floral/plant/abstract prints in dresses that are sexy, feminine, simple, and elegant that can be worn at work, on an ordinary yet extraordinary day, on a date, or a special evening out on the town.
Utilizing mainly jerseys, stretch silks, and silk chiffons, our fabrications lend themselves to beautiful shapes and silhouettes that compliment the female form. Our customers are sophisticated and real women…career oriented and successful both at home and at the office, who naturally love wearing on the go, sexy, easy, and most importantly feminine dresses.
I have been a professional photographer, and a classical opera singer the majority of my life. A few years ago I discovered a new and awakening passion. I found myself drawn to creating fashion with encouragement and guidance from my dear friend James Tarantino, a highly accomplished and celebrated fashion designer. After learning the basics, I started to create my own dresses that I exclusively wore everywhere I went. Amazingly, numerous women randomly approached me on the streets asking me where they could buy my dress.
It was an “Aha” moment!
Soon there after, I decided to make the dresses that I designed for myself available for women who also wanted them. We began developing floral prints by hand painting onto watercolor to design our various fabrics, to creating the patterns into these beautiful dresses, to creating the imagery layered in poetic beauty of photographing them on our models… all done with much care and heartfelt love.
We want women to wear dresses that embody and personify their own sense of femininity and beauty in the exquisite shapes and prints we have so passionately and consciously created.
I believe all women can be strong, yet soft at the same time.
