Jane X by Wei Huang

Jane’s first contact to fashion started at five years old. As a child, she spent a lot of time at her parent’s clothing manufacture and learned the design process from start to completion. She realized fashion was her dream at a very young age.  Jane admires traditional Chinese textiles and traditional Chinese gowns. Under her label of June Pearl, she merges both components and, her love for pearls adorn her 2018 collection. Jane X was born in China and has made Chicago her home for the past 15 years.  She never ceases to be fascinated by the fashion, art and people of Chicago, and is weaving herself into the fabric of this city. She has a background in visual art and fashion, obtaining her fashion degree from the Illinois institute of Art-Chicago. Jane launched JANE X Custom on January 1, 2017.  To ensure quality and comfort, Jane personally sources all materials and only opts for the finest fabrics and detailing. The first collection, June Pearl, won the special occasion evening gown award from The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago fashion show.
