An absolute natural in front of the camera, Jess has impressed us with her Supermodel game when taking part in our photoshoot last year. Her bubbly personality and natural sense of style are some of her key characteristics and are among many reasons why this Aussie beauty has so quickly won our hearts. This week we are very excited to share with you a short interview with our muse and inspiration behind our latest dress release, the Jess dress.
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Jess, I am 29 years old and I live in Newcastle, NSW. I've been married to my awesome hubby Michael for 4 years, and we live in a small zoo with our labrador Ozzie and two cats, Homer and Hello Kitty. I work as a Marketing and Communications Advisor for an electrical engineering company called Ampcontrol, and I am currently completing my Master of Marketing at the University of Newcastle. When I'm not at work or studying, I love nothing more than binging my favourite shows on Netflix, cooking up a storm, planning travel adventures and catching up with friends over a cup or tea, or a cheese platter and glass of rose.
How would you describe your personal style?
My personal style is a way I represent my personality and creativity. In the office, I do keep my style quite uncomplicated and conservative for a professional setting, and this is particularly why I love my reversible LB dresses. Comfort is really important to me, which is another reason I love my LB dresses because the jersey material always feels great on, and it's a big plus that it never needs ironing.
Outside of work, I love to have a bit more fun and freedom with my style, by accessorising my LB dresses with unique pieces of jewellery I've curated over the years, brightly coloured jackets/kimonos, my statement frames and a bold lippy.
Jess, you were the first person to wear- test your namesake dress. Can you review it for us?
I may be biased as the namesake of this stunning dress, but I can't speak highly enough of the Jess dress. From the first time I tried her on, it was love at first sight (it helps that the red is the colour of love). The dress is equal parts sexy and sophisticated! I love the beautiful volume in the skirt, the stunning flutter sleeves and the twisted keyhole neckline elevates it to a whole new level. She feels AMAZING to wear, she's so fun and versatile to accessorise and she will take pride of place in my wardrobe for many years to come.
Can you tell us a bit about your LB journey and what does it mean to you?
For as long as I can remember, I've struggled finding good quality clothes that both fit and flattered my body shape as a size 16. On so many occasions, I wouldn't want to go out or attend events because I didn't have anything to wear that made me feel comfortable or confident. All of that changed when I when I bought my first LB dress in January 2017, and I had no idea at the time that it would change my life in so many incredible ways.
From customer, to customer supermodel, to conversations community member - my journey with LB has been positive, uplifting and above all else, so much fun. I've made lifelong friends in my fellow customer supermodels Mel and Kama. I've had the pleasure of working with the LB HQ team who are without a doubt, the most incredible, forward thinking and inspiring group of women I've ever met. I've been part of a changing conversation and movement surrounding body diversity in the fashion industry. I am so proud to be part of a community of women who support, motivate and empower one another every day. They say that behind every successful woman is a tribe of women who have her back, and I don't think truer words have never been spoken about the LB tribe. I can't wait to continue on this journey with a brand that is changing the world, one twirling jersey dress at a time.
