About Us


Meet Cecilia J

The Cecilia J Collection is the first in our signature design series to be personally curated by our CEO and Creative Director, Cecilia J Penn-Diallo. Fashion has always been her passion- and with the launch of the Cecilia J Collection, this passion is on full display as she pays homage to the legacy of her grandmother, Joan Cecilia Penn, a savvy businesswoman in her own right, she passed on to Cecilia her keen eye and incredible sense of style.

Cecilia has garnered head turning notoriety for her bold use of colors and signature use of black and white monochromes.

In the first debut of the Cecilia J Collection she offered up two beautifully crafted leather crossbody bags, a fun and flirty graffiti tote, her signature brooches, and a must have lip gloss collection that’s been beautifully packaged in blinged-out and noteworthy style.

She continues to push the fashion envelope by bringing forth bold designs in combination with the use of staple colors with the launch of this collection. In this current collection called "Totally Blessed" Cecilia J explores the use fall colors, denim fabrics and comfort styles to accentuate the woman on the go.
