My 11 years traveling the Art/Craft Show Circuit, taught me a great deal. I met many Women who Designed and Created Wearable Art and it is from them I attribute my journey into Designing my JOO Apparel Collection. I believe in Simple Designs, Fabulous Fabrics, Comfort and Timeless Designs....that hold true after All the Trends have Faded.
JOO One of a Kind Handbags
As a child I loved to Paint and I loved Handbags. On a visit to New York in the 1990's I saw a very small Italian Hand Painted Clutch, which stayed with me. When I became dismayed with teaching Elementary Phys. Ed. the idea of putting together the two things I loved became a REALITY !
Best Girl Friend Collection
Remember when your Dolls were your BGF's ? The Concept of this Collection evolved from the idea that as we age we may again need that Special Girlfriend who is always with us, creating Laughter & Conversations !
I have spent years studying Women's Facial Features, Physiques & Personalities.I first created Francine on canvas. Her Exaggerated Features & Strong Personality, just came forth.....I probably met her somewhere along the WAY !
It has taken 16 years to bring this BGF Collection , of Handbags, Scarves, Apparel, Totes w/Accessories, to Fruition. Francine is the eldest of 3, her twin Sisters, Estelle & Edna will be added in the near future.....STAY TUNED & ENJOY !
