During the HER Magazine September/October 2017 cover and feature photo shoot, Mid MO Fashion Week founder and director Enjoli Dixon wore a beautiful dress from St. Louis fashion designer Whitney Jones and her clothing line, Live & Kiss.
Being plus size her entire life, Whitney understands the troubles of trying to find something cute and affordable on a daily basis, according to Jones’ biography. She understands the difficulty in going into department stores or chain stores looking for something that will fit her perfectly.
In 2016, once Whitney realized that high-quality, trend driven and affordable styles were hard to find she decided to start Liv & Kiss, which caters to women sizes 12 to 36. According to her biography, Liv & Kiss stands for “living your life to the fullest in clothing that keeps it simple.” All of the garments that Liv & Kiss offers are made of high quality fabrics, trendy styles and affordable prices. They make sure that all of the garments will transition to whatever is on a woman’s schedule and keeps that woman fashionable and comfortable throughout her day.
“Often women feel pressured because of how society tells us what we should look like,” Jones said. “However at the end of the day we are to ignore society and continue living our lives being authentically you and Liv & Kiss helps you accomplish that feeling whenever you’re in one of our garments.”
Over the past years, Whitney has been featured on stltoday.com and in local newspapers. She has also won multiple prizes with Columbia College Student Entrepreneur Showcase.
