Please help designer Ann-Marie Bastien complete and produce her next collection for Fall/Winter 2013 juniors plus teen brand.
Jupiter Five - Beautiful Curves
Ann-Marie Bastien founder and designer of JupiterFive.com juniors plus online boutique based in Atlanta, GA.
Ann-Marie has studied Fashion Design at Columbia College in Chicago and has a degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship.
After relocating to Atlanta, Georgia in 2007, throughout the years, my passion for design got pushed aside for more realistic careers and it wasn’t until two years ago that I started pursuing my passion for Fashion.
Ann-Marie decided to target a niche market in the fashion industry; teen plus sizes!
How Jupiter Five Was Inspired
We believe fashion should be available in all sizes because chic, cool, hip, cute, fabulous, and fun girls come in all shapes! Young women between the ages of 13 to 18, sizes 15 to 25 need fashion that speaks to them, that’s fun, chic and hip. Jupiter Five is inspired by and created for young women who believe that every shape and size should be celebrated as unique. Jupiter Five offers young women versatile pieces that are eye catching colors, feminine and flirty silhouettes, and an effortless fit create a signature look that no young lady can resist!
Young women have so much going on in their lives, if we can help by providing them with fashion that can build their self-esteem, cut back on some of the bullying, why not. Jupiter Five goal is to provide real style and solution, to the juniors plus teen, that is colorful, fun, youthful, high quality fashion, and look fashionable and feel great.
Jupiter Five online boutique was launched in March 2013, includes trendy pieces like pants, skirts, tops, dresses and jackets. All of the items on our site are made exclusively for Jupiter Five.
A special thank you to all my young ladies who embrace their curves! You inspired me to launch this brand.
Jupiter Five Boutique is a clothing retailer that believes in high quality, high standards, and positive shopping experience.
Jupiter Five mission is to provide fashionable, stylish and chic clothing for teen girls. We bring quality, affordability and latest trends to everyone. Our basic concept is "Style has no limits".
1.Why does this clothing line have to exist?
Young women who don't fit into the societal "feminine" category have never been able to find clothing made just for them. There has never been a designer or clothing line that design for curvaceous teens. They have had to find substitutes and be happy with the limited items found in the misses, women plus or boys department.
2. Why should it be done now?
This project has been a community effort from the very start, and we’re finally ready to begin production. I would never have made it this far without the support of family, friends and people like you. And now, I'm ready for the next step.
Why is this clothing line significant? Why do people need to be a part of it?
It’s about filling a gap in the fashion industry. It's about creating a movement that can influence people to be more open and accepting of others. It's okay to be different because that's exactly what makes you who you are.
This is Jupiter Five first collection launched in March 2013 online; visit our website to see more!
We Need Your Support
Our goal is to raise $40,000.00 to cover our production and expenses for our Jupiter Five 2013 Fall/Winter collection, and we need your help! To go into production, the factories we work with require minimum orders and we need to have the funds to back those orders! With the Kickstarter funds this collection will go from paper to production. We want to make Jupiter Five a recognizable and a household brand.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
To put the collection into production, we must raise enough money to be able to order the minimums of each style from the factories we work with. The more money we raise, the greater variety of styles can be produced for Fall/Winter 2013.
Running a business can be a great challenge in itself, but with the right team and strategy in place, it can become a success. With manufacturing, there are always potential roadblocks when it comes to timing and quality. Given my experience and background, I am confident I can manage through the process of manufacturing and shipping the products to you on time. We began this process back in May of 2012, and have treaded carefully to leave very little room for error.
From the moment I decided to take this risk, I haven’t stopped. That said, timing is the biggest hurdle I face – I will get my samples made as soon as this project closes. The lead time for Samples is 3-5 weeks, and production can take 4-6 weeks after samples approve.
We are dedicated to you as both backers and future customers, and are committed to making your experience with us as smooth and joyful as possible.
After the project closes, I will send all backers a survey requesting size information. On Kickstarter, a project is only considered successful if it reaches its financial goal by the project end date. That's when your credit card is charged, and I'm allowed to send you a survey. (If I don't make $40,000, you won't be charged, and sadly no clothes for young ladies!).
Yes. We’ve invested our own time and money to get to this point, but the money we hope to raise will completely cover production of our Fall/Winter 2013 collection.
You can visit us at our websites. If you have any more questions, feel free to send me a message and I'd be glad to help.
