Having listened to hundreds of women speak about their changing bodies, lack of confidence, and not finding good fitting garments, I was inspired to do something about this. Bringing my knowledge and experience from working for R.M.Williams as a Pattern Maker for seven years, I began my label, Josephene by Jo Lucchesi, ten years ago, designing for real women.
With careful consideration of body shapes and recognising the need for sleeves, comfort and a beautiful fit, Josephene designs show some shape without revealing it all. Like the The Deborah Dress, a gorgeous design, fitting women with full bosom, full tummy and/or full hips. Wear it tied high or low, at the front or back this style suits the slender woman also.
Josephene SS16, flattering and stunning. Introducing the fun and flirty Swing Top and TShirt to hide tummies.
There is so much joy in hearing women say, how they love the fit and fabrics; the elbow length sleeves; how they feel so good, so comfortable in my designs.
Many of my customers even start to like their bodies again. That is a very special moment. Isn’t that a moment we all could do with?
