Jessica Abernethy, a Providence-based designer, creates clean, forward and wearable apparel. She was born in Connecticut and moved to a small town outside of Nuremberg, Germany as a teenager. Jessica received degrees in both Design and Pattern Making from the esteemed ESMOD University in Munich. While in school, she completed an internship with Marc O’Polo, a Swedish clothing brand. Jessica returned to the United States in 2001 and launched her own line.
Rather than focusing on trends, Jessica’s designs channel a sharp, effortless sophistication, reminiscent of her German education and the New England upper crust.
