JACOBA JANE

Jacoba Jane specializes in bias cut silk dresses, all of which are designed in their seaside studio on the west coast of Canada. Jacoba Jane creates for those who appreciate fine fabrics and understated details. Many of the styles are cut on the bias to capture the easy fluidity of the silk fabric.

Jacoba Jane loves discovering and interpreting new ideas through tactical means, such as draping on a dress form. The science of pattern making is complemented by the art of draping, two processes that work hand in hand to provide a roadmap for each new piece.

"My suggestion is to avoid overthinking it. Grab your pencil, scissors, or computer, and just start. "

Jacoba Gibson, JACOBA JANE
MINI INTERVIEW

What advice would you give to someone interested in fashion design?
It can be overwhelming when you’re starting out. There is so much to learn. My suggestion is to avoid overthinking it. Grab your pencil, scissors, or computer, and just start. Whether it's sending that initial email, ordering your first drafting textbook, or learning to sew, take that first step. The path will unfold as you actively push forward—one step at a time.

How do you handle a creative block?
As difficult as it can be, stepping away is the most effective. Most days, I am either at home or at the studio, so if I have the chance to take a weekend away for example, that always helps. Changing up my physical environment always invites new ideas and contributes to feeling fresh mentally.

What's your favorite color to work with?
There is such a sense of timelessness to black and white, they are so palette-cleansing. That being said, I love a pop of color. Right now, I am loving a creamy ivory and shades of blue and green, and I will always love a good pink.

What’s your favorite fashion city?
New York City.

What's your favorite type of clothing to design?
The bias cut silk dress, what we specialize in. There is something so special about the drape of the fabric, how it moves with you and feels like you’re wearing nothing.
