During her early teens Jay moved to London where she carried on her studies and studied fashion design for two years in West Herts College in England and finished with triple distinction.

Even at a young age Jay knew that her passion and purpose in life would shine through fashion. Jay's sense of fashion is something that comes from her heart and is expressed in every piece she makes. In 2011 Jay decided to skip University and go straight to work. She worked for a retail company, where she attended trade shows, acted as a buyer for Lovestruck and made samples for the company. One of the dresses Jay assisted to produce was worn by Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge.
In Summer 2013 Jay decided to start a blog called Jay's Closet. Jay wanted a way for her followers to get to know her and be able to engage with her more. Jay's Closet is also a way to inspire others to love their culture and to mix it into their everyday lives.
MODERN. CULTURE. INSPIRING.
Jay wanted to follow her dream and implement her belief that "young girls and women should dress classy and sophisticated". This belief, passion for fashion and impeccable work ethic led to "Colore by Jay", where YOU can "Be The Muse In Your Canvas Of Life".
