Jennifer Goldberg Weiser is from Paris currently living in Los Angeles. She spent the past 10 years working in the film industry in Paris, Los Angeles and Copenhagen before creating Jenni Jane in 2014.
“As a kid, I adored spending my time in my grandfather’s cobbler shop in the 15th arrondissement in Paris. I’d wile away hours, watching him work after school. I grew up with the smell of leather, the hum of machinery and the tap-tap-tap of hammers.
All my life, my grandmother said I should never go out without a purse… she began drumming that into me when I was 4! I guess it eventually stuck. She instilled the notion in me that handbags are the ultimate accessory, complimenting a woman’s femininity.
My sensibility is deeply permeated with the years I spent in Los Angeles, Paris and Copenhagen. My designs reflect the soul of Paris, with its purity of line and breezy chic; Los Angeles, with its contrasting red-carpet glamour and laid-back beachwear; and Copenhagen, with its precious materials."
The brand name brings together the designer’s two nicknames, sometimes Jenni, sometimes Jane. It also points up the contrasting sweet & demure and free-spirited & independent sides of today’s women.
