Meet The Pepper Dress...
American made, wear multiple ways.
100% silk + always fair trade.
Season is exactly what I've dreamt of wearing (and creating!) over the past nine years of wishing for a dress that always fits...
A silhouette that feels gracious, yet playful --- Thoughtfully designed, and up for adventure at any turn.
I've worn many hats throughout the fashion industry, and my belief amidst all of them has been this:
Everyone deserves a wardrobe of pieces that help them look and feel fabulous.
Nothing makes me happier than knowing our dresses are gentle on the environment, kind to the hands that sew them, and liberating for the women who want to feel beautiful throughout the pursuit of a flavorful life.
XOXO - Jessie

the story of season
The first prototype was created sometime around Summer 2010... A frankenstein-frock pieced together from two different dresses rescued from a Goodwill in Kansas City, MO.
Moving to NYC in 2011 prompted the purchase of a few extra layers, but the dress stayed a constant and very forgiving staple in Jessie's closet. Together, they traveled the US (and beyond!) and then finally headed back to Southern CA in 2015.
As a brand, we're passionate about body-image, ethical standards, and clever design -- but we ALSO believe that you deserve to look great when you walk out the door to do your thing.
Launching this design stems from years of playing dress-up with hundreds of styling clients, and it is such a dream to keep pursuing the chance to make an impact on the fashion industry!
In the meantime: we've got a few new garments and some exciting collaborations up our silky little sleeves, but for now -- as we've always said -- we're making this Pepper Dress just for you.
