With over 25 years in designing and making clothes, Jody knows intimately the best cuts, designs, and colours to highlight your figure, shape and curves.
Jody is first and foremost about quality. Quality design, quality material and quality finishing. Jody is also someone who cares passionately about making her clients feel good about themselves.
Most of us are not used to seeing our shape, well-fitted. Most clothes are bought off the rack and aren’t designed for our unique body shape. It takes a designers eye and many years of experience to know what works best for different shapes.
What Jody does is design clothes that are specifically designed and created for the particular body-shape and features of the client. Not a flat-pack piece, but a unique piece commissioned especially for you. The result is truly empowering. Her clients feel confident from the inside out.
Jody’s designs are architectural pieces that are made to last. When Jody visualizes a design, she works passionately to find the best way to bring it to life. It’s real hands-on work from the design, to the patternmaking, to the cutting, and the finishing.
Jody is inspired by the driving force of Mae West, a woman driven by the vibrancy of her own spirit, body and life. Mae West’s famous exclamation “It’s better to be looked over, than overlooked” is the inspiration for Jody’s designs.
Every one of Jody’s designs seek to draw out the inner personality of the client to be confidently expressed and enjoyed by her client, and those admiring her. People are drawn to Jody to spoil themselves, or their partner, with a gift of self-expression and self-confidence, and often in a way that may never have been experienced or known before.
Most mass produced clothes are created around a slender shape and the mass media reinforces this. If we are not that shape, we make do. We spend time searching but only occasionally find something that fits. The easiest options are inferior and mass produced and here begins the cycle of being trapped in disappointment.
Jody Kahlon’s mission is to right this wrong. To make women feel good about themselves, in their own skin and personality.
