Joyce Stewart / Jes Irie Wear
textiles & fashion design / clothing
Hometown: Central Islip, NY
Joyce Stewart created her first item of apparel at only 12 years old when she transformed her pajamas into a blouse.
She believes that women should have a wardrobe that feels great and looks great, no matter what their size. Her clothing is produced in sizes ranging from XXS to 4XL, to accommodate the many women who find clothes shopping to be a frustrating experience.
Joyce and her team of assistants do all the design and production for Jes Irie Wear in a 1200 square foot studio in Long Island, NY. Jes Irie Wear designs are featured in museum gift shops and specialty stores throughout the United States.
