Born in Boston, Massachusetts and raised in Palo Verdes, California; Jenna Lyons had a tough childhood and was bullied constantly for many of her health problems. Though, with those feelings of being shunned, Lyons turned to fashion and it made her start to open up in various types of ways. In The Guardian, Lyons commented on the health conditions, saying that her disorder “made me introverted, but it was also the reason I loved fashion because it can change who you are and how you feel, and that can be magical.” 

Ultimately, Lyons went on to pursue fashion even further and went to Parsons for fashion design. Lyons graduated from Parsons in 1990, and at age 21 found her way into J.Crew and landed a assistant designer in menswear position. By 2003, Lyons had become the Vice President of Women’s Design.

After having met CEO and chairman Millard Drexler in 2003, he and Lyons made a close bond and eventually Drexler appointed Lyons as Executive Creative Director in 2008 and eventually, president in 2011. Talk about making the right connections! To 2015, Lyons still holds the title of president and has been thriving in that realm since then.

Lyons’ style is rather chic and minimalistic in ways. A primary staple for Lyons has to be the crisp white shirt. Ranging from jeans to heels, it matches with everything! As well, you can see Lyons in her classic horn rimmed spectacles as well!
