Jemima Jackman - Latest IndieShop Designer

Meet the latest IndieShop designer....

Hi!  My name is Jemima Biscombe and I design colourful 50s inspired headbands and ladies intimate apparel made from African wax prints. I use the surname "JACKMAN" as an attribute to my grandmother who was my first muse, dressmaker and source of my early training.

Coming from an island as diversified in culture as Trinidad & Tobago, has allowed me to manipulate the use of colour that depicts the energy of my passion.

I love the beach and working with cotton textiles in all variations.

After attending the Academy of Merchandising & Design in Toronto, I travelled Europe and studied Italian for inspiration, before moving to New York to work for a dress manufacturer in the garment district.

I'm dedicated to providing you with pieces that are timeless and rich in colour. Just as Carnival is like a mirror that reflects the many immigrants, so are the colourful fabrics, which shows the unique touch in each piece I design.

I am very excited about being a part of and hope you appreciate my work!
