Meet the Collective: Jesica Milton

I'm super excited to have the lovely Jesica join us in the store! She is not only an extremely talented lady but also a kind hearted and sweet friend.

Hailing from San Jose, California, Jesica Milton moved to Seattle to attend the University of Washington.  Three years later, in 2008, she founded her sustainable women's day to evening wear company with an emphasis on femininity, minimalism and versatility. Her line has been featured in Seattle Magazine as the featured 2009 Seamless in Seattle winner, Seattle Metropolitan, Lucky Magazine & Audrey Magazine. Jesica's collection is manufactured locally in Seattle, Washington. In a conscious effort to reduce our environmental impact, she purchases surplus fabric from larger manufacturers, and has also instituted a textile recycling program. Fabric left over from garment production is sent away to be recycled into paper, mattress batting and carpets. Larger pieces are given new life as cummerbund belts.

Not only will you be able to purchase the JM Cummerbund Belt at SPUN Sustainable Collective, but she will also be featuring her best selling Sweetheart Dress and Interlock Top (my personal favorite):

I hope that you stop by the store and check out all of Jesica's designs and of course pick up a few pieces for yourself!
