Interview with Jackie Brown (itsnot_jackie)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

My interest in fashion started at a young age. At university, I studied Fashion Design. I entered the world of Fashion in 2016 and start designing my own clothes. I was always obsessed with High fashion. So for me, a career in Fashion always felt like a natural progression professionally. I can’t imagine ever doing anything else. Last year I created my own brand called “Eight Studio”.

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

An interesting story is when I went to the Paris fashion week in 2019 and had the chance to visit the Chanel show, it was always been my dream and It was an amazing experience.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Never Give Up.

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

I could not name a particular person, but I would say surround yourself with people that push you to be better.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

For me, I have used my success to spread love and inspire as many women as possible. I want young girls to know that they are capable of ANYTHING. And that they can be, and look, however, they want to look.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life? 

“Walk your own path”. People like to judge other people. This peer pressure can make you stray from the path you started to carve for your future. Don’t mind other people’s aspirations, don’t ever let someone else’s goals and dreams influence your vision of life. It’s your path and you decide where it takes you and how long it takes you to see it through. Focusing on your own dreams will lead to success.
