About the New jacket Line

We have concentrated on the jacket as the go to piece in any women’s wardrobe. We are becoming known for jackets that are considered avant garde , or” stand alone” , and others that quietly complement the wearer’s wardrobe . The jacket story started for JWM when she went to see the recent David Hockney paintings at the Royal Academy in london two years ago .

His paintings of the seasons, his sense of color were such an inspiration that from one jacket design by Jane was born the Spring summer Fall and Winter Jackets.These are the statement pieces that are presented on the stylist page.  Today we have many jackets that appeal to all kinds of women .

It is our attempt at being inclusive , attempting the seemingly impossible , to appeal to many women’s taste and pocketbook.We are sized accordingly and the line is versatile in that we encourage what we call the” semi couture experience ” . This allows you to have design imput and “make it your own.”

Despite the artful — and sometimes whimsical — setting, Wilson-Marquis, a British-born fashion designer who splits her time between the Hudson Valley and Manhattan, has a most practical approach to the art of dressing, which she sums up in the most succinct manner.

“You have to feel good about whatever you’re wearing,” she says.

And she knows for many, that’s quite the challenge.

“We’ve all bought clothes that we bought for whatever reason and we never take it out of our wardrobe.”

Wilson-Marquis has made a career out of helping people avoid that scenario with designs that tap into something deeper than fads and passing trends.

In fact, she says she’s been told, “People have to know who they are to wear my clothes.” Read more …
