Jordyn is the 12-year old creative behind the natural beauty and bath brand J. Brielle Handmade Goods. She is not only a young business owner, but also a cheerleader for literacy, youth entrepreneurship, and empowerment. Jordyn started her business because she loved to shop for sweet-smelling soaps and awesome bath bombs, but they were always too expensive or full of chemicals. So she decided to make her own. She began selling her soaps to her neighbors and church members and found that they really liked them. She then began to sell her items at vending events and her business grew from there. Jordyn is an avid reader and also a talented artist who hopes to attend Parsons Design School upon graduation and eventually open her own gallery one day. You can follow Jordyn on Instagram and Facebook @jbriellehmg or visit J. Brielle Handmade Goods at www.jbriellehmg.com.
I launched myself into the fashion show industry about 12 years ago as a freelance fashion show coordinator while working in fashion retail. I worked in both large and small events in the Vietnamese entertainment production industry and was personally flown into many events as part of the back-of-house production. The fashion shows were always the highlight of these local concert events as well as the bigger live productions. In addition to these productions, I have coordinated fashion shows for university clubs and organizations such as the University of Houston, Atlanta University and Brown University in Rhode Island that showcased local designers.
Coordinating fashion shows is my passion while I professionally grew my skills and abilities in working in fashion retail (Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Kate Spade and Macy’s). I started my professional career as a stylist and was promoted to management after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the Bauer College of Business in 2005. After earning my degree, I was placed into leadership roles such as Sales and Merchandise Manager and Human Resources on the executive level in these stores. These roles made me realize my passion for planning and executing fashion events, and I knew that was what I was meant to do.
I am the owner of Swan Fashion Production and Beauty Mark US. My specialty lies in managing the front and backend of productions since I am incredibly detail oriented. After working in more than 60 shows, I excel in casting, leading, organizing and coordinating great teamwork among everyone I work with. My core team that I have been grateful to put together is hardworking, knowledgeable and passionate. Our priorities are to get things done and have an amazing time doing so. We are excited to help you portray your vision through an incredible production. Contact me to find out more about my services!
