I am Jennifer, owner and designer behind Je'Denise Handmade Handbags. I am a Charlotte based Entrepreneur in the retail fashion industry.
What made me interested in the world of Fashion you ask?
Fashion was introduced to me as a child. My Mother and late grandmother owned a small seamstress boutique, located in my hometown Newburgh NY. Their business consists of creating custom garments, selling notions, fabric, and teaching evening sewing classes. Around age nine I mastered; sewing classes, running the register, helping with fittings, and cutting patterns. I enjoyed every part of the operations and knew that fashion and entrepreneurship would always be a part of me.
In my late teen years to early adulthood, I focused on Fashion Design and worked extensively in the retail fashion industry. I later graduated college with an Associates in Business Administration. After years of retail experience and entrepreneur adventures, I became the owner of N2S Fashion Boutique located in the University area of Charlotte, NC where I sold woman's clothes, handbags, and accessories. After a period of time, I decided to return to my online platform.
My love for fashion trends, enhancing style, and building customers self-confidence encouraged me not to give up. I created BossLady4Style selling wholesale handbags online. although I enjoyed selling handbags, there was still something missing. I couldn't find my diverse style in the bags I was selling, so I decided to research handbags. I watched tutorials, read books, made patterns, purchased fabric, and before I knew it I was making handbags . Once I began investing and believing in myself I decided to make the switch from selling wholesale bags to making handmade bags.
The name Je’Denise is a mix of my first and middle name, Jennifer Denise.
Je’Denise handmade bags are made for the person who is minimal chic and utilize accessories to enhance their style. The handbag is the go-to accessory that tells a story about the person, and everyone is unique in their own way. I got into making bags to create unique designs. Unlike others in the market, we provide the options to customize a ready to ship design or request a custom look.
