Iva Jewell is for the woman that has the corporate 9-5 and wants to have a pop of color. The woman who wants to be bold in the meeting and not distract people from all the brilliant and strategic ideas she is presenting.
The inspiration for the prints in this collection was born from Dionne's travels to Africa and India. Two cultures that still believe in color and print because the perfect combination to embody Iva Jewell's spirit.
All of the bags are made from Ankara (African wax fabric) & Saree Lace.
Dionne McCray, founder of Iva Jewell, named the brand after her mother — a total spitfire.
Dionne's passion for fashion dates back to high school where she made her own clothes, from a hot pink bodysuit to prairie skirts, and sailor tops. She did it all.
Her experience in Silicon Valley, working at one of the world’s most recognizable consumer brands, prepared her to understand what consumers actually want and how to provide products that exceed their expectations. She's had the privilege of working with the brightest, most creative, inspirational and innovative people in the startup world. Through those experiences, she failed and won many times over and along the way built the drive, ambition, knowledge, and confidence to go for it!
