The California native, 34, worked as a fashion editor, producer and stylist before moving to Columbus when her Ohio-bred husband, Donald, accepted a job promotion. Her rich, elegant-but-edgy shop features hard-to-find, big-name international designers.
Her favorite part of the Columbus fashion scene is the people: She used to dress personas, she says; now, she dresses women she views as incredibly real.

In Her Words

Your style:
Two equal parts strong and effortless chic with a dash of somber sensuality

On Columbus women:
Columbus women are sophisticated in a disarmingly real way, which mirrors both the fun and pragmatism of fashion.

Your inspiration:
A woman's sense of presence inspires me, because it's proof positive of my belief that clothes don't wear a woman; a woman wears the clothes.

What She's Wearing
Thakoon dress and Bottega Veneta sandals, both her own. Etten Eller vintage watch plate pendant, $312; and Etten Eller watch gears necklace, $271; both at jinny.

Jinny is located at 844 N. High St., Short North. For more, visit
