About Jacket Society
First of all I want to say “Thank You” for visiting my Jacket Society blog. So what about jacket society?
My name is Nora, I am a fashion designer, stylist, teacher, wife, mother of a teen age boy and now a fashion blogger!!
I’ve created this womens jacket blog mainly because of my love of fashion and passion for styling, which still lives in me as strongly as it did in my 20’s. I wanted to share my personal style and inspirations for putting things together at any age, while still looking chic and fabulous. I often get asked about my look and where I bought this or that, so this is a great way for me to share what I call “my eye for fashion” with you.
So you might ask why “Jacket Society”? Well mainly because I am especially passionate about jackets. From putting an outfit together to designing a collection, everything somehow starts and ends with a jacket for me. I feel as if jackets complete a look and make you look polished and confident.
And now a little bit about my background. I received my Bachelor of Arts in fashion design and merchandising from Otis College of Art and Design many years ago and have worked in the fashion industry as a designer, merchandiser, stylist, and teacher. I even had my own design company for a while which taught me a lot about the business, sales and marketing side of the industry.
I love the process of design and how you can get inspired by the most unexpected things in life which help you in the whole process of putting a collection or outfit together to convey a story or mood. What you wear on daily basis says a lot about yourself, so it is important to know who you are and how you want to represent yourself. I hope that I can help and inspire you here to find your own self expression through fashion.
