When you’re at supernova status, the world knows you only by one name. Stevie, Michael, Beyonce… when you hear it, you automatically know who they are. But not just for the name, for their craft. In the design world, this rings true for JIBRI.
JIBRI is a powerhouse fashion brand notable for creating fashion-forward garments for the fashion conscious curvy woman, sizes 10-28. This brand is the creation of 2017 Life Styled Honoree, Jasmine Elder.
Jasmine, who was raised in Atlanta, was first introduced to garment construction in high school by her teenage friend and mentor, Jibri Mann, whom she named the brand after in 2006.
Officially launched in 2009, JIBRI designs have been worn by many curvy beauties such as Tamela Mann, Tasha Cobbs, Kiera Sheard, Jill Scott, Toccara, Amber Riley, Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes), Tess Holiday, Gabourey Sidibe & Lonnie Love.
In an interview with The Curvy Fashionista, Jasmine shares, “I’ve been the girl sitting in the corner at the party because I wasn’t comfortable and I’ve been the girl that walks the floor 3,000 times. I love giving that to women. To be able to provide it for an entire group of women who the industry has ignored makes me extremely happy.”
If this is not living a Life Styled to empower, we don’t know what is!
