Jessica is one of our first customers and she has a passion for writing. I admire her sense of style and how she passionately dedicates her time to putting her thoughts and ideas into her blog.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by her a while ago and I am happy to share with you this piece about Oh Kimono and starting a business.

You can find her article here.
