Jennifer Johnston's Profile

About

After living in Charleston, South Carolina, I consider bow ties a necessity not an accessory. I began making bow ties so that I would have a wide assortment to choose from when dressing my little gentleman. This soon turned into a small business, as there were others who were interested in what I was doing. In February of 2012 I was laid off from a job, and team, that I loved. This life-changing event was motivation to take this new hobby to the Internet as a way to bring in money to my family. I now make bow ties and accessories for gentlemen of all ages and hair bows for little ladies as well. As for the name "Gigi", it was a nickname given to me by my nephew when he was learning to speak. He couldn't pronounce "Jenny". Ten years later it has stuck and that's what my immediate family calls me.


Thanks for reading y'all!
