We had the good fortune of connecting with Rachelle Jackson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Rachelle, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is Faith & Prayer. Every year I write out a prayer of goals business & personal and put it inside my Bible and watch them all happen before my eyes. Now it do take some effort on my end as well because ” Faith without work is dead” James 2:14.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Rocky J Designs brand is not just clothing its a Vibe. My custom wear is made to set you apart from the world almost like you are your own species. Thats the mindset I take when creating a custom designs. After graduating from fashion school I kept promoting and entering in local fashion shows to stay close in the fashion industry. I believe that hustle got me where I am today. The process came easy to me because its something I enjoy doing, however my challenges were being a single mom while trying to build a brand. My children are who they are now because they have watched me become the entrepreneur you see today. The lesson I have learned in this process is to don’t hold back on your dreams go for them and be unapologetic about doing what you have to to get there. Rocky J Designs brand is a fashion house where the everyday person can dare to be different and will one day be one of the biggest brands around the world.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take my friend shopping at a few malls. Go to six flags over Texas and hang out at a few clubs.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have a village of peoples support. My family invest, promote, and encourage me throughout this whole process. I also had a close friend name Mirah she recently passed away but she helped me get my brand into the Dallas fashion scene. Helping me with several fashion shows and photo shoots.
