Flowy Lines and feminine silhouettes and peak-a-boo sex appeal make this local fashion designer’s looks a must-own.

Like many creatives, Jesica Milton is addicted to seeing her ideas come to fruition. And luckily for style lovers across our beloved city, she’s chosen fashion to dictate her brush and easel.

Jesica migrated north from San Jose with the intention of attending the UW to study business, but her love for fashion caused the inevitable, and she didn’t make it through that initial first quarter. Designing her own collection was the next logical step.

For Jesica, fashion is a mood lifter, and she finds inspiration in the hope that her designs will do that for other women.

“The thing that I love most about clothing is that it becomes part of the wearer’s everyday life,” Milton said. This is especially true in Seattle, she says, with a look that’s best described as “practical meets layered, plus quirky accessories.”

Her current collection captures that look effortlessly, featuring beautiful high-quality garments designed to be versatile and trendless.

But it’s not just about the style. True to her Seattleite roots, Jesica crafts all of her garments using sustainable design techniques. To reduce the collections’ impact on the environment, Jesica utilizes a textile recycling system — fabric leftover after garment production is sent away to be reborn into paper, mattress batting and carpet.

For now Jesica’s collections can be purchased in boutiques throughout the Seattle area, and she currently has stockists in California, Oregon and New York. Visit JesicaMilton.com to check out her latest designs — or take a look at these peak at some of our favorites…
