Adele by Adele Jackson Focuses on its Hand Craftsmanship, Sustainability, and Giving Back
Adele Jackson, Founder
Los Angeles, CA
My name is Adele Jackson. I am 25 years old and am born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. A lot of my inspirations are based around art, nature, and travel. I don't like sitting still for too long, so even small adventures refresh me all the time. Beyond working on my business full time as of this year, I like to got to local music shows in East LA a lot to support my friends and boyfriend who are in different bands. I am currently living in the Valley with my boyfriend and my 10 year old dog, Coco.
I would describe Adele by Adele Jackson as a reflection of me as a person. As I had stated earlier about how travel and nature are big inspirations to me, and I think you can see that reflected in the collections I create. It is a wearable art lifestyle brand that focuses on its hand craftsmanship, sustainability, and giving back whenever possible.
I came up with the name of Adele by Adele Jackson actually back in College for a school project. I had wanted to create a contemporary clothing brand at the time, but then shifted more into an art direction a few years later. Given that I am young in life, I felt that this is the best time to start on a brand/project such as this because this is the time to creates risks and really strive for the things we want.
What I think makes Adele by Adele Jackson so unique is that not only do I create a collection based off of what I think is beautiful or inspiring, but I also raise awareness with it as well. Each collection donates 10% of profits to a charity that correlates with the theme. I learned from a young age that when creating something, success doesn't mean anything if you aren't giving back to those in need as well. And that’s what I love that I can do at the end of each year.
In addition, I work really hard to create sustainably conscience products when I can. I print all my prints on recycled paper in Los Angeles. In addition, my patches, shirts, and stickers are all made in the U.S. In 2019, I even strive to make my brand even more sustainable in packaging and production.
