Daily Inspiration: Meet Jennifer Love

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Love.

Hi Jennifer, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Born in Augusta, GA, I spent the first eight years of my life living overseas. Being able to see fashion in Paris, Amsterdam, parts of Africa, like Kenya and Cameroon, made me want to be a Fashion Designer. I love watching how clothes built confidence in women and allowed them to express who they wanted the world to see.

But life took a hard turn and I had a mental breakdown down. I lost the confidence in myself. It was the lowest part of my life, everything was going wrong, but I learned that I had to take a moment and have love for myself. Starting my Women high fashion brand Bodylicious Couture in 2018 saved my life. It gave me back purpose. Being a Fashion Designer has allowed me to be creative and tell my stories through my garments.

Each collection shows my growth not just as a Designer, but the collection names express the women I have become. The first Collection was Passport to Freedom, which was the freedom I found with the gift God gave me and my newest collection is called Rebel because I am now enjoying and loving life. This is the part of my life that is the adventure that I am excited about.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it has not been easy, the biggest struggle has been getting people to see the value in my clothing brand Bodylicious Couture. Showing them how my designs give them the freedom to change without having to go home. The love I put in each garments, I wanted them to know how much I care and wanted to solve the problem that they don’t see too much in fashion, which is Versatility. I am positive that things are moving up from here.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I am a Fashion Designer, wow saying that out loud feels great. Took me three years to build the confidence to leave my 12 hour job to be able to do my dream job Full-time. My Women’s high fashion ready to wear Couture Brand Bodylicious Couture is truly innovative. And I am very proud that I am able to do my passion.

What sets Bodylicious Couture apart is the Versatility of each piece and the Couture of the accessories I design. Each piece is custom-made by hand. The design gives the women wearing it the Freedom to change their look in seconds.

The greatest victory is that I got the opportunity to debut my Rebel Collection at New York fashion week. Bodylicious Couture is my baby and I am excited to share it with the world!

Do you have any advice for those looking to network or find a mentor?
What has worked well for me is networking. Reaching out to let people know who I am. Allowing them to put a face with my brand. Through networking, I got an opportunity to work with Anila Sajja from Married to Medicine on Bravo, Rashan Ali from Sister Circle on BET, and working with top celebrity stylist.

My advice is if this is your dream, you have to take a leap. Get out there and let people know who you are and what you do. You will be surprised how many people will want to help.
