About Me

Jewel Shannon    Fashion Profile

Born in the Caribbean Island of Barbados, Jewel Shannon is a designer of distinction whose work is adding a unique flair to the fashion world.   Jewel draws constant inspiration from growing up in Barbados; this is seen in her playfully casual line, her mind provoking swimwear collection and elegant body sculpting evening gowns.  Her detailed attention to form and function allows her to bring out the best features in each individual client.

Jewel Shannon's Designs have been featured in several news periodicals in the United States such as the New York Daily News, the New York Times, and Fox 5, as well as on several television and cable programs.  As a sponsor of several pageants in the past, she is currently working on the First Annual Signature Walk. So You Think You Can Walk Runway Competition to be held on Sunday May 16, 2010.

Her unique and exotic couture swimsuit collection has dominated eight cover of Black Men's Swimsuit Magazine. Through her work with Black Men Magazine and Today's Black Woman Magazine, she is currently the Fashion Editor of IB Concepts Magazine and Caribbean Vibes Magazine.

The moods of Jewel's collections are feminine, exotic and mysterious. Her Island Jewels Resort wear collection is uniquely designed for the women of privilege who is going on vacation, on a cruise or world tour.  Dangerous after Dark is created for women who want to be the center of attention, bold, daring, sexy and mysterious. The Zync Collection is a bold combination of rich silver fabrics, denim, rhinestones and sequence closures.  The Jewel Shannon Couture Collection features Couture evening and bridal gowns for the sophisticated woman of class and style; designed to fit the specific taste of the exclusive clientele. With unique detail, this collection is created with a difference using a variety of beautiful and rare fabrics.

"My collection is for the woman who is sophisticated, unique, sexy, smart, confident yet mysterious."  As Jewel Shannon continues to create couture garments for individuals with exceptional fashion taste, she can be described as A Gem in the fashion world and a designer to be followed in the future’.
