Jenna Lyons is Pretty Cool.

by 97495429 November 29, 2012

Jenna Lyons – J.Crew President, Creative Director, fashion industry game changer, master of the feminine/masculine mix, and "a force to be reckoned with," according to Ms. Wintour, is pretty cool. Just in case you're not familiar with Ms. Lyons and her work, or need some convincing ... here are 6 reasons why she's one of my favorite ladies in the industry:

The way she fearlessly plays with pattern, texture & color...
that killer shoe wall in her closet ...
and enviable office ...
the major role she played in transforming J.Crew, making style accessible to everyone ...
that interview with Garance Doré ...

And coolest of all, in my opinion, is that she really loves to dress everyone ...

“For me it's about being able to relate to everyone through fashion. Recently we were in Arizona and I walked into a room filled with a sea of people dressed in J.Crew. It felt really good. Everyone was colorful, happy and bright. It felt good to be part of that many people’s lives in a meaningful way.”

Did you know Jenna started at J.Crew over 20 years ago as an assistant? That kind of passion, talent, and hard work is seriously inspiring. That's enough to get me motivated this Thursday, how about you?
