TAMMY JO | Founder, Tammy Jo Fashion
Tmmy Jo is the owner and founder of her own sustainable clothing brand, Tammy Jo Fashion. Tammy had a love for creating unique fashion garments for herself out of sustainable materials long before becoming a brand. At a point of change in her life around 10 years ago, she took a leap of faith to pursue what she loved most as a career. She decided she wanted to bring that same uniquely-made experience that she had within her own clothing creations to other women all over; ultimately desiring to make every woman feel as beautiful as possible. After years of selling her designs through e-commerce and other shops, Tammy fulfilled her dream of opening her own boutique in Orlando in 2017. All of Tammy’s garments are one-of-a-kind pieces created with unique intent, designed to fit multiple body types, and made by her with love. Tammy is an advocate for ethically-made and sustainable fashion, which is why her garments are made using supreme vintage and repurposed fabrics. Recently, she has partnered with local charity organization Rebuild Globally to assist in the economic restoration of Haiti through means of ethical fashion. Tammy Jo Fashion is loved by many and has been featured on Fox 35, blogs, and magazines.

There she combined her love for fashion design and theatre to work on costuming. Not long after graduation, Jaimie moved to Orlando in 2012 to study Fashion Design and Merchandising at IADT Orlando.
