It’s hard not to love the founders of Wilbourn Sisters Design. Not only are they extremely talented designers, who have created clothing for RHOA’s Nene Leakes, ESSENCE Fest speaker Iyanla Vanzant, and All-Star Gospel tribute honoree Kim Burrell but they also teach future fashion designers how to be great at their craft.
These ladies make fashion matter in more ways than one and every time they come back, our ESSENCE Fest attendees walk away from their tent with a happier spirit and a happier closet, due to the impact of their amazing personalities and even better clothes. The sisters, Janice and Carolyn Wilbourn, are two of seven girls raised by their mom, Queen Mother Elizabeth in Jackson, TN. Their beloved mother taught them how to sew and be independent entreprenuers from a very young age. Now, the designing duo is known all over the world for their daring, uplifiting designs for everyday women to the biggest names in entertainment. (Oh, and they also design for men!)
With a combination of impeccable taste, vibrant energy and unmovable faith, these ladies have created a successful brand that’s been around for the past 30 years. “God is using us to design and manufacture ladies clothing for beautiful women in all walks of life and for all occasions…You feel God’s Spirit when you put on the garments,” they wrote in their personal statement online.
