To create clothes that make women feel like they are the empire!
Jeanette Limas was born in The Dominican Republic and began her education there at The Mercy Jacquez Institute studying pattern making. Later, she enrolled in the prestigious School for the Arts, Altos de Chavón. Upon graduation, Jeanette received the Young Designer of the Year Award, which allowed her to present her debut collection during Dominican Republic Fashion Week. She also won a scholarship to study at Parsons School of Design and relocated to New York City to pursue higher education. In order to develop her already-commanding technique, she studied drapery at The Fashion Institute of Technology. Jeanette is currently a full-time designer and has worked on the design team of Urban Zen by Donna Karan and Jolibe Atelier. In 2015, she started her own namesake brand and has presented multiple successful collections at New York Fashion Week.
In 2022 she was a top finalist on season 3 of Making the Cut, winning two design assignments and praise from industry heavyweights like Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Jeremy Scott, Nicole Richie, and Jason Bolden.
