Jennyvi Dizon is a New York City fashion designer who started developing her skills as a child. Jennyvi's father was a tailor in the Philippines and she started sewing at the age of 5. In 2003 while going to Phoenix College, she started making wedding gowns for her friends and eventually her own wedding. After graduating with her Fashion Design and Business Administration degree, she made use of her education and started her own business by making custom bridal gowns. Since 2003, she has been recognized for her designs by winning a few awards, being featured in major publications and on television from Phoenix to NYC.
In 2021, Jennyvi joined the Jane Austen Society of North America. After she attended her first JASNA Annual General Meeting which was held in Chicago, Jennyvi came home inspired by her fellow Janeites. That inspiration led to the decision to create a collection based off of the characters of Jane Austen's novels.
The Jane Austen Couture by Jennyvi collection will debut on the runway during New York Fashion Week on September 10th, 2022.
