Jacqueline City Apparel is the brainchild of actress, model, and 25-year-old artist, Jacqueline City. Her inclusive fashion brand provides a fresh take on urban apparel geared towards all genders, with plus size options available. Rooted in Philadelphia, Jacqueline provides a young artistic originality that’s often missing in affordable and inclusive fashion.
She releases cohesive collections bimonthly on the first Friday. City’s winter line, “Solstice: A Winter Collection.” is set to unveil on November 1st. It was inspired by the upcoming winter solstice in December. “I’m very motivated by the idea of the rebirth of the sun and celebration of light seen in the winter solstice; the silver lining in reinventing yourself and the aspect of new beginnings is very fitting with my brand,” City expressed.
Despite her successes, Jacqueline suffers with a disability called dysautonomia, which has led her to struggle with significant pain and challenges. Jacqueline prides herself on her ability to turn her disability into a positive and create a space where all are welcome in the all-encompassing platform of Jacqueline City. “I want to create a positive platform for people regardless of their size, gender, race, or abilities. I value Jacqueline City Apparel as a place that welcomes all to express themselves through creative outlets such as fashion,” stated Jacqueline. “I believe it’s important to not let society’s ideals hinder how you see yourself so it’s important for me to turn my disability into inspiration and opportunities for other,” City remarked. The 23-year-old hopes to go on to expand Jacqueline City Apparel across the globe and do more in-person events.
