Looking the part
It is so important for women working in a professional environment to look the part and feel confident. Clothes play a critical role in that. As a young corporate finance lawyer working in the City in the 80’s and just 5’ 1” tall, Jennifer Ison struggled to find the right type of clothes that suited her frame.
Scroll forward several decades (or more!) and the situation amazingly enough had not changed. Why this was so she found hard to understand. From talking to other petite women working in a professional environment she knew there was a definite gap that that they would also love to see filled. So after much thought and planning, she made the leap from law to fashion and in early 2017 launched Jennifer Anne, a new brand of clothes exclusively designed for petite women.
The right fit
It is not just a question of sleeves and trouser legs needing to be turned up, petite women are continually faced with clothes that are not correctly proportioned for them. We at Jennifer Anne start from the very beginning of the design process with a shorter frame at its centre. We have fabulous clothes in our collection that make petite women look elegant and superbly dressed.
But petite doesn’t just mean small and slight. The term is a reference to height and Jennifer Anne caters for women of 5’ 3” and under.
The new styles brought out last month come in sizes from 6 – 16.
