ABOUT THE BRAND
Fashion has long been a part of my life. As a child growing up in Jamaica, I would watch my grandmother fashioned me dresses with frills, beads and fancy glass buttons that would eventually become the very basis of my designs. When I was 10 years old, my mother opened up her first design studio and by age 13, I became her understudy.
After relocating to the US, I enrolled in a university where I earned a bachelors degree following up by a master degree. Armed with a graduate degree, I set out to climb the corporate ladder but as luck would have it, one morning I woke up with a burning desire to return to my first love and so in 2018, armed with a my new vision to carry on my family’s gift, Madame Adassa was born; a collection of vibrant, exotic, glamorous fashion with a tad bit of risqué. A collection that exude everything that represents my culture and a celebration of my dear mother and through her, my grandmother.
I am so proud of my cultural influences. I am grateful to have been born in a country that allowed me to have the childhood memories I hold close to my heart. I am proud to share with the world my original inspiration- the woman who bore the fighter that is my mother, with a heart that was a kind as it was forgiving, my source: Erica Adassa.
Comfort must not elude luxury. We've perfected our silhouettes to mimic that of an actual human body. Our designs are practical yet glamorous. We stand firm in our structure and quality; from choosing the finest of fabrics to selecting the perfect trimmings, attention to details is a must. Nothing leaves our atelier without passing the eyes of the designer. From conception to birth, every single aspect is inspected.
We believe that being fashionable is as intrinsic as breathing. It is who we are. Madame Adassa was created to echo the message of the fashionable woman. She is not a trend. Her impact is ever-lasting. She is vulnerable as she is passionate. She is rooted, yet adaptive. She is bold and gracefully confident. She is the fresh breath that walks into a crowded room. These qualities are woven into every stitch that we make, woven into every single piece of garment.
Because we are all beautiful in the skin we're in! Madame Adassa celebrates our unique individuality. A brand by woman, for women! We are naturally conscious of all body types. For this reason we are size inclusive! Whether you are a size 0 or a size 22, we've got you covered. Literally!
