About Me


Charismatic, fierce, talented and of course “Fashionista” are just a few words most people use to describe Jessica Martin, founder and creator of Nippy Lavern Fashions. Born and raised in “the best city in the world” – Brooklyn New York is also the birth place of her popular Nippy Lavern Fashions Boutique. As a rising star in New York’s fashion landscape Jessica Martin has participated in over 130 fashion shows and has executed dozens of photo shoots since 2010. Martin has currently made clothing for stars on VH1, various rap and music artists and on the rise to dress more. After designing for celebrities she recently developed a new brand in 2014 titled Taylor Knight Collection which has been synonymous with the mantra of “Timeless Elegance, Tailored with sophistication”

The Allan Houston Foundation awarded Nippy Lavern Fashions with a monetary award as one of the top 5 hardest working businesses in development on April 17th of 2008; Citigroup and Lenovo also presented the company with a an award for this achievement.

THE STORY                                                                   

Nippy Lavern Fashions was named after an extraordinary young woman named Darlene “Nippy Lavern” Taylor, Martin’s aunt, whose life was shortened in a car accident by a drunk driver at only 22 years old in 1988. In remembrance of the great Darlene “Nippy Lavern” Taylor, the founding date of Jessica’s company is proudly recognized on Nippy’s birthday.


Nippy Lavern intends to establish a scholarship program in Darlene Lavern Taylor’s name and to conduct additional fundraising efforts for the Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) Foundation. An organization that has helped the Taylor family get through this terrible tragedy which is why it’s Jessica’s mission to support their efforts so they can continue to help families in need.
