Launched in 2008, Janean Johnson, designer of JaJo Couture, established herself as one of the hot new designers to transcend the Houston Fashion Scene. While playing by her own rules, Janean’s high energy designs personify her eclectic personality. JaJo Couture specializes in custom one of a kind womens’ wear, catering to women of all shapes and sizes. Her collection is a combination of costuming, evening wear, and day wear and features fabrics such as silks, leathers, and other bold unique fabrics. The JaJo Couture Clutch line reflects the clothing line built by JaJo Couture to accessorize with the same edgy and eclectic look. JaJo Couture augments bold personalities with designs that elicit adventurous individuality.

Janean Johnson comes from a long line of sewers and quilters and at the age of 10 she received her first sewing machine as a gift. After creating her first outfit she realized how much patience she didn’t have for the sewing machine. This didn’t stop her from wanting personal outfits so her mother would make her tops, and dresses for school dances. The sewing and design stopped for several years until one day during her reign as a photographer she realized she wanted something really specific for a swimsuit. This is where the design part of her was reborn in 2005. Of course like any other creative individual once you start getting ideas they don’t really ever stop. The here and there pieces were born for various photography projects.

In 2007 the urge to design became so powerful it became more of a priority then photography so by 2008 the label JaJo Couture was born and the camera was put to the side. The name JaJo was created based on the first two initials of her first and last name and couture because each piece is hand created by the designer herself.

JaJo Couture is an innovative women’s fashion label. The pieces designed and created are meant to make a statement, to empower the women’s body and personality. Fashion itself is a reflection of personality and taste that JaJo Couture takes to another level. The possibilities are limitless and JaJo Couture creates one of a kind exclusive garments, wearable couture, costuming and her signature collar pieces. The pieces created are a reflection of her own personas and images. Educated at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco California she is able to design, draft patterns and completely construct each piece. The love for fashion and art will never die.
