Former Teen Mom Turned Designer Builds Over Half a Million Dollar Brand Gets Picked Up By Publicly-Traded Billion Dollar Company - Stitch Fix
When you get the attention of Stitch Fix, you know you’re doing something right.
For a brand that has made a name for itself, making women feel comfortable in their own skin, Taylor Jay Collection has come a long way and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Publicly-traded Stitch Fix has picked up the on-trend apparel brand that offers slow fashion and eco-conscious designs. For founder Taylor Jay, it’s the culmination of years of hard work, dedication, and perseverance.
“I started designing my clothing brand during a transitional period in my life as a young mom when my body started changing from a size 2 to a size 12 within months,” says Taylor. “At the time, the fashion industry didn’t cater to what I, and many others like me, needed. This inspired me to begin my journey of self-discovery to empower women through comfortable clothing that adapts to their evolution.
“To now have the interest of Stitch Fix is beyond anything I could have imagined as a young mom. I’m truly honored and thrilled that they have confidence in the strength of our brand and the high-quality items we have in our collections. It truly is a perfect fit!”
With her young daughter in tow, Taylor initially set out to L.A. after high school and spent the next 12 years in the fashion industry honing her talents and being a great role model to her child and Black women entrepreneurs are on the rise. The lessons learned along the way are priceless, both as a woman of color and one who is changing the narrative on what women’s clothing should look like today.
Just as Stitch Fix has changed how many shop for clothes, so has Taylor Jay by designing apparel for women of diverse body types, becoming a seven-figure brand. These fashions will now be offered through the Stitch Fix curated service, giving customers an exclusive shopping experience based on fit and style preferences. Customers instantly purchase their favorite finds and discover pairing ideas for their own items. This allows stylists to select Taylor Jay pieces to outfit today's fashion-conscious woman. It's undoubtedly an enormous opportunity for a small business that started with one woman's vision.
I hope you’ll help me in sharing this exciting news! Taylor is available for interviews to discuss her story and the impact Stitch Fix has on her collection.
