the emotional part of our being”
The Legacy Continues
We are honored to be so deeply connected to the cherished memories of the thousands upon thousands of women who wore a Jessica McClintock dress to “that” special occasion. And since 1970, we continue to delight in bringing new “McClintock Moments” to women of all ages.
Recognizing the bond she created by dressing women for life’s most important moments, Jessica expanded the enchantment to other product lines. She established a 360-degree lifestyle brand that touches the consumer on an emotional level that is far and beyond what other brands and designers are able to offer.
Jessica’s dedicated customers are multi-generational, and geographically span rural, suburban, and metropolitan communities across the country and around the world.
At the core of Jessica’s success is a promise — every product that carries her name will always be represented by great design, value, and accessible pricing － and the essence of romance and beauty.
As a forerunner for empowering the lives of young women and women of all ages, Jessica McClintock created a multi-million-dollar lifestyle brand from her signature dress collection. She became a fashion icon and a truly American success story.
Inspired by her beloved needle trades grandmother – with a small investment and entrepreneurial spirit – she built one of the most respected fashion brands – that lives in the hearts of women today.
“I believe Romance is beauty that touches the emotional part of our being” Jessica McClintock
