Meet the Owner

My name is Jennifer, and I am the proud owner of Jamison & Bexley. I was born and raised in the United States, but my parents are from Africa. This means that I am a first-generation American and have a unique perspective on the challenges faced by immigrant families. I had a dream when I was a little girl that I wanted to be a big fashion designer and went to college to get my degree in Fashion & Retail Management.  I moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio because Columbus is the 3rd largest city for fashion.  Here I have participated in multiple fashion shows designing ready to wear women's clothing and had a blast finally seeing my dreams as a little girl come to life.  But once I started having kids, my dream shifted and I wanted to create something for them to have when they got older.   

Six years ago, I was a mother who was struggling to find affordable and age-appropriate clothing for my two young children. I didn't want them to wear clothing that was so gender specific, nor did I want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on clothes that they would just ruin. That's when I decided to create Jamison & Bexley. Named after my own children Bexley and Jamison, I wanted to offer clothing that is adorable and gender-neutral clothing for little kids.  Each item is curated, designed and hand picked by me.  I have gotten back into designing with just tee shirts for now, my most popular being “Mixed with Love” and “Apparently I’m Dramatic”.  Mixed with love is designed with my children in mind.  They come from two very different racial backgrounds, but that doesn't mean they are loved any less.  It's for all the kids that are mixed race who feel that they don't “fit in” and they are unloved because they don't fit into one box.  You are loved just the way you are and I wanted something that they could wear to show that to the world.  And “apparently I'm dramatic” sort of speaks for itself.  We all can be a bit dramatic and there is nothing wrong with that. 

I am excited to offer you gender neutral pieces that are so durable they can be passed on from one child to the next regardless of gender.
