Jacqueline City goes to PFW


Last year I made an interview with Jacqueline City and I personally didn't think they will achieve so much in just one year but they did. How cool is that! So today I talked with wonderful Jacqueline City founder about the changes.

Bio: Jacqueline City is a 23 year old fashion designer and owner of Jacqueline City Apparel: A New Approach to Fashion. Jacqueline City is proud to be a disabled girl boss who suffers from heart disease, dysautonomia, and POTS which left her bedridden for some time. Because of her disabilities, she stresses the importance of inclusivity; her brand has options for women, men, unisex, kids and plus sizes. Jacqueline City Apparel made its runway debut just one year after its launch in February 2020 at NYFW as a "New York Fashion Week: Ones to Watch” and is set to show at Paris Fashion Week in the fall of this year.

1 Tell me about NYFW experience:
New York Fashion Week was a dream. In collaboration with Flying Solo, the largest independent designer platform, I had eight couture looks walk the runway at the iconic Pier 59 Studios. The line was called Lovers, inspired by The Lovers tarot card and came out in February in time for Valentines Day. It was my first time attempting couture fashion but I think it went well. NYFW was a very exhausting time. The weeks leading up to the show were filled with seemingly endless hours of sewing and fittings. However, Fashion Week was the most rewarding event I’ve ever done. I am so proud to have shown at NYFW just one year after launching my brand. New York Fashion Week was such a surreal experience I’ll never forget.






2 Show me your ultimate Jacqueline City spring outfit :

My ultimate Jacqueline City outfit this spring would be very quarantine friendly! I think its very possible to be comfy, cute and fashion forward while we are all being safe and staying home. I think a cute cropped top or sports bra like our Duality Lovers Padded Sports Bra along with biker shorts, leggings or sweatpants like our Ancient Lovers Unisex Joggers is perfect! Accessories like our In The Cards Socks and In The Cards Fanny Pack are perfect for walking your dog or the perfect instagram pic! Add a mask for an ideally safe look this spring!


3 Tell me about your plans (here comes Paris) what do you think?
I’m very excited to be showing at Paris Fashion Week this year. The show will be in October at The Ritz in Paris. PFW is a dream I never thought possible. I do not think it will feel real until I’m actually there in Paris. I studied French for three years in hopes I would one day get to study fashion in France; I never thought I would have my own brand or ever have the opportunity to even attend PFW as a spectator nevermind show there. I’m incredibly excited and I can’t wait to showcase all the behind the scenes of the experience on all my social medias (instagram facebook) and JacquelineCity.com!

  3. Jacqueline City is such an inspiration. I like how she hasn't let her disabilities and sickness define her. To be honest, she is far better than some with no disabilities. She's not making excuses, she's turning her lemons to lemonades-- and that's so brave.

CPM: Profashion Masters

Profashion Masters is a contest held annually during Collection Premier Moscow (CPM). This year it was the only catwalk in main program (Body and Beach as usual kept separate catwalk fashion show, you can go through it in this post). I was honored to attend physically to the finals and makes photos to share it with you. the theme is 'coat'. Coat as the say is the hardest clothes there is to master. It amazed the professionals how good the coats on the catwalk were made. A lot worked with prints and made bold moves. Some turned to ethnic roots which I personally absolutely love. My outfit was comfortable and warm, it was a very cold day so I wanted to make sure I feel my best. I wear a lot more greens lately and this top is absolutely gorgeous both color and material. My pants are quite old but I love how warm and comfortable they are. I am happy I put on my iGlassesshop glasses on so I could see every little detail on the coats. I was wearing: Monki top, pins and pants

Green Sign

I wore this outfit on numerous occasions but never took photos. It's so comfortable and easy to assemble I didn't even feel it as an outfit until the moment I realized I am lacking content for my blog. It was a little chilly but the sun was shining brightly which made me definitely want to go. The photos turned out lovely. We took right at the local park entrance with vintage wooden sign stating the park name. You might notice my irregular hair here. yes I am 100% strait hair person at all times. But there I braided my hair went and kept it braided (two braids if you are curious) for 24 hours. It lasted for about an hour but I enjoyed it nevertheless. My whole family has curly hair, everyone but me. I don't mind really but sometimes I wish I had I curly at least as curly as you see above (I did always wanted my sister's curls which is something between of 3c and 4a I think). Also coordination of green is still new to me. I though green is not my color when I was

CPM, part 1

Collection Premiere Moscow or CPM is the fashion event I always wait for. It normally marks the start of spring fashion session being the first major event. I always enjoy it a lot. This year it comes reduced but it did come back and it took place in familiar halls of Moscow Expocenter. I was super excited to have this experience again. It even started to feel like normal spring is coming soon. Yes I loved it that much. Despite what I normally shoot during CPM this time I saw only one show (so far) and it was from Body and Beach section. Yes they didn't make it to regular Designer Pool or CPM selected fashion shows but kept the lingerie. I don't regret it at all. This time with a help of Lingerie Business Magazine they brought us dancing fashion show with wonderful models demonstrating lingerie, swimwear and homewear. As I saw from my Instagram homewear is still in it's prime. And with styles so nice I totally relate. Go check it for yourself. As for my outfit... do you r
