Our Story

I founded Anna Jean A Women's Boutique around the love of fashion and the connection that it creates between women. I strive to create a place, though online, where women feel welcomed, valued, and empowered. 

Anna Jean was inspired from a lifelong love of fashion and art. If you were to walk in my childhood bedroom you would see fashion sketches I created on my walls and tucked away into notebooks. My great grandmother was a seamstress, she was a hard worker and constantly creating. Going into her home as a child, standing on her kitchen table for her to hem my jeans, I was inspired. I wanted to create, I wanted to have the ability to take something and turn it into something incredible just like her. 

Fast forward to 2018, I graduated from Meredith College with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing. A couple years passed and my heart was still pounding full of ideas of what my creative expression would be, and Anna Jean was born. 

Is Anna Jean a person? Well- kind of, it comes from a shortened version of my name {Brianna Jean} and strong women I grew up with. Ann- being my great grandmother, grandmother, mother and sister's middle name. Jean- being my paternal grandmother’s middle name. 

With each purchase you are helping us to have the ability support women owned brands and empower other women to reach for their dreams. 
You will notice as your browse our collections we have noted which brands are women owned. #babessupportingbabes

I hope you feel the love poured into my little corner of the internet.

Brie
