Taylor Jay Collection is a women’s apparel line designed and made in Oakland, California. Our classic clothing empowers and inspires women to discover their own journeys.
Taylor Jay’s mission encompasses ALL women - the student, the mom, the daughter, the executive professional, the entrepreneur, the grandmother.
With that in mind, we are launching our plus size collection to serve the many women with curves whose fashion needs are underserved and ignored by mainstream clothiers.
I know because I am a curvy woman!
Passionate, confident, fabulous women deserve to have quality, classic, signature style clothing that can empower them to discover and move through their life’s journeys. I want to make that happen!
Clothing needs to empower a women’s life. A woman’s life is deeply complex and her body reflects that complexity on a daily, monthly, even yearly basis. Hormones, stress, multi-tasking can change the way you look and feel from one day to another. Pregnancy, school, a job can change your body year-to-year. I personally have experienced this, once I was a size 2 and now I am a size 12!
Pressures, changes and challenges compel a woman to constantly shop to try to find clothing that will fit the phases of her life. Because the only other choice is to wear something that doesn’t fit and makes you feel less confident in your body.
Constantly shopping to find clothing that will fit your ever changing body is expensive, time consuming, and even depressing. Plus, it is not very good for the environment or your bank account.
Taylor Jay Collection eliminates this whole exhausting, dehumanizing, and consuming experience. I design clothing to contract and expand with a woman’s body as she moves through one phase of life to another.
The colors are diverse to fit all women and unique to convey passion and confidence and create a style that can be a woman’s signature look through her lifetime. Our Plus Size Collection will feature four new colors as well as the Classic Color Options.
I, with my daughter, am the proud owner of Taylor Jay Collection. I am a woman, mother, business owner, and creator on a mission to develop my journey and to empower other women to discover and develop their own.
I became a teenage mom at the age of 14 as a result of child sexual abuse. I was determined that through fashion, I would create a bright future for myself and my daughter. I began this journey as a boutique owner in 2007. Although I stocked other brands, quickly, it was my own brand that became the most requested and highly sold. My designs, very intentionally, work for women’s bodies through all our many transitions –including pregnancy. My choice of fabric is soft, yet durable; My garment colors are strong and diverse so as to fit in women’s diverse lifestyles. Realizing that there was a greater interest for Taylor Jay designs, I closed the boutique in 2015, and have been working on expanding the Taylor Jay Collection ever since.
The funds we raise will go directly towards the plus size options we are adding to the classic collection, as well as the design of a new collection called The Kotton Collection.
I invite you to join me in empowering other women’s journeys by backing my campaign. Thank you for all your love & support! We couldn't have done this without you!
