When I tell you that I love denim, believe it. I LOVE denim. I wear it dressed up, dressed down, and during all seasons. When I saw a designer showcasing her recycled denim pieces in one of the crafting groups that I’m a part of on Facebook, I had to get to know more about her. Jente Carter makes magic with denim! She crafts denim apparel and accessories in unexpected ways as only a true trendsetter could do. In addition to creating beautiful fashion, Jente promotes body positivity through both of her business ventures, Denim by Jente and Fluffie & Co. Read on to get to know the Denim Slayer, Jente Carter!
A Love for Denim
Hi! I am Jente Carter, from Dallas, TX, where everything is bigger! I am the CEO of Denim by Jente and Fluffie & Co. My passion for denim started when I was in junior high school. I have always wore jeans with everything. The creativity was sparked in 2017 by a Facebook post. I saw a shirt made from recycled jeans and it seemed easy to make. The next day I recreated that same top. My next project was a pair of shoes. I mastered that and just kept going!
My 2nd business, Fluffie & Co. is a brand all in itself. Fluffie & Co. is all about being fine with being fluffie and beautiful. It’s about presenting confidence. Be confident in whatever you do, always holding your head high and remaining a lady.
Turning Talent into Business
Having that vision of one day owning a denim shop and not ever clocking in at a 9-5 is what inspired me to LEVEL UP and be my own BOSS LADY. Denim By Jente/ Fluffie & Co were officially launched in 2018. I’m into the whole Go-Green, recycling thing with Denim by Jente. This is what makes my business unique. The fact that a pair of jeans can be turned into a couture, fitted evening gown excites me. I take recycled denim and turn it into something so fashionable.
Making Moves on the Fashion Scene
My collection has graced the runway in 5 fashion shows and there are many more to come. My greatest accomplishment, so far, was showcasing at Raw Dallas, a major platform for creatives from all genres. I prayed to God about being busy and booked, and it is happening.
