About Us

Our story springs from love. When a California girl met a New Delhi boy in NYC, a friendship sparked into a lifelong romance. The couple shared a dream: to build a company based on ethical manufacturing, and working with our friends. Janet Nelson Kumar, the brand, sprung forth.

About Janet

Janet’s love of fashion took root as a young girl, learning to sew at her grandmother’s side. After school, on an exciting career path, she traveled the world with global fashion houses and later her own bridal line.
Now, Janet has realized a new career dream, founding a contemporary clothing brand for modern women, blending the vibrant New York spirit with the California ease of her childhood and the Indian heritage she has grown to love.
A champion of women, here and abroad, Janet’s work is guided by the idea of creating unique yet wearable clothing for real women.
