bb+ida is a clothing line for Ladies and Little Ladies. With the mission to create dynamic, quality, handmade clothing for seasons.

Hello, I am Jessica Dusel, owner of bb+ida. My company is based out of Chicago, Illinois where all production takes place. Creating well-executed clothing is my passion, which resulted in my conception of a new line of clothing at the beginning of this year. Emphasizing Ladies and Little Ladies clothing for the Fall of 2012.

bb+ida is the culmination of years of sketching, constructing, and dreaming of this point. My goal is to showcase bb+ida at Renegade Craft Fair. Everything I have done to this point is for this exact goal.

With your support I can successfully construct and stock my booth at Renegade while also offering custom design orders for the dresses and coats already offered in bb+ida’s Fall 2012 line.

My line is designed to fit Ladies of all sizes and Little Ladies of all ages. bb+ida understands the sometimes-frustrating approach to shopping. That's why I offer timeless designs that aren't high-end boutique markup or produced overseas.

As a tribute, all the pieces in my collection are named for my inspirations, grandmothers, honoring the women whom have made impacts on our lives.

To successfully launch my Fall 2012 Line at Renegade Craft Fair, I am seeking your support to purchase the fabric to bring my designs to life offering custom tailoring for every garment purchased or ordered. As well as marketing materials to grow the bb+ida new line while at Renegade.

Renegade takes place in the heart of Wicker Park Chicago, in September of 2012. Since my acceptance, I have been designing fun and versatile styles to sell in my booth. Keeping with the custom design of my new line and with emphasis on producing well constructed, sleekly, tailored tunics to be worn according to a Ladies taste, body, and existing closet. bb+ida is creating fun designs for Little Ladies, creating a simplistic but whimsical approach to the basics.

With your generous contribution I will be rewarding you with pieces from my collection, while also offering recipes from my grandmothers, whom bb+ida is named for.

I encourage you to read the full story of bb+ida on my website. While there, please review my Journal, where you can review entries and see up to date progress during the production phase to Renegade 2012.

Thank you for any and all support you can provide.

Jessica Dusel

*A special Thank You to all the wonderful persons whom helped me get this up and running.
