Jude Connally experienced a life-defining moment as a teenager that ignited her passion to help others feel good. While working in a clothing store, she dressed an awkward, self-conscious young girl in a pair of figure flattering jeans. For the first time, the girl recognized her own beauty and was brought to tears. In that instant, Jude realized helping people feel good was her purpose in life and that hasn’t changed.
After working for some of the most respected names in the fashion industry for more than two decades, Jude decided it was time to fulfill her life’s mission. She founded her clothing line in 2010, with the goal of creating a dress collection that allows every woman to embrace her own beauty.
Beauty is not about the dress; it’s about the woman.
Jude believes, “Every woman has a unique inner spirit that makes her naturally attractive” and she has designed her dresses so that each woman who puts one on will feel her spirit shine.
