    Meet Jess Russ, creative genius & savvy entrepreneur behind Australia’s fastest growing accessory label Jessica-T!

    Founded in 2011, Jessica T is  the culmination of a decade-long love of all things fashion for Brisbane-based designer and Creative Design Director, Jessica Russ.

    Following graduation from high school, Jessica was accepted into the inaugural year of QUT’s new BFA Fashion Design Degree, studying alongside the likes of George Wu and Gail Reed (Gail Sorronda). By the time Jessica had graduated with Honors in 2004, she had completed a 3 month internship in Hong Kong, and was the first QUT Fashion Design student to gain full time employment in the fashion industry.

    Within 12 months of officially launching, Jessica T was stocked within over 100 stores around Australia and internationally. Two years later, Jess has achieved a turnover of $1M and continues to grow and diversify, and in September of 2013, Jessica’s achievements were recognised when she was made a Queensland Finalist for the Telstra Young Business Women’s Awards.
