Haute Couture empowerment & development
by expert designer J-na Garcia Taylor!

Am I being presumptuous declaring my expertise? We will let the readers be the judge after having  read my story. The fact that I literally passed through the fire of a childhood tragic incident leaving the lower half of my body severely scarred and disfigured, and rebuilt my shattered self-identity and esteem by teaching myself Vogue patterns at age nine. I had to develop my best couture living freedom concept in personal style to compensate for my disfigurement.

Despite my schooling and educational background, this wisdom alone qualifies me to do the same for others, which I have done for hundreds of individuals. It's now the purpose of this website to do the same for millions!

Enjoy this liberating Haute Couture adventure as we embrace a high-fashion concept of what is truly us, and not the mass-produced version of what the fashion industry at large says we should be.

We don’t want to get lost in the crowd of faceless fashion followers, but we want to to stand out as someone that knows:

  • Who we are.
  • What we are about.
  • Where we are going.

And reflect exactly that by what we wear! Join the community! As I invite all to set up a personal meet and greet via video chat today!

This site includes:

  • All original,  j-na couture and GSb Men's Couture, Eco friendly and Wearable-Technology Designs.
  • Top couture fashion reviews.
  • Fashion resources.
  • Research.
  • Experiences from myself, J-na, a couture designer.

Witness our true couture self-concept develop, as we benefit from the years of couture experience and knowledge that my fashion design team and I have to share.

We will collect liberating insights from the decades of adventures in fashion I have acquired. We will also catch fresh edgy fashion insights from my son and head designer of the GSb Men's line Cal!

We also challenge our readers to participate in all the pages of this site by adding their own views and opinions, as that is how we grow and develop our best couture concept and really learn what works for us individually.

What is this term we refer to as Haute Living, or Haute Couture Living as a lifestyle philosophy?

Imagine yourself figuratively gracefully walking through life with a huge shopping cart. No matter how many things you fill it with, and no matter where you go, it remains light and easy to maneuver. It doesn't weight you down, in fact, the cart serves as a welcome support for you to lean on. In this cart you are constantly collecting elements of life from the world around you, that inspire and amaze you. Nuances that you wish to share with the ones that you love and your peers. The things that you take joy in celebrating about yourself and your journey. The things that fill the spaces you visit with the same joy and wonder that you experienced the first time you discovered them yourself! These are the things that make up the foundation of Couture Living!

With the help of this site we want each of you to truly attain the joy and liberation of COUTURE LIVING, it is achieved from a well developed personal style wisdom! In effect, to become capable of styling ourselves to reach our personal goals and objectives, however essentially we are dressing to please ourselves! Free from the stifling and squelching  rules that the "style critics" would impose upon us to keep you in their "box". Believe me, a style box is not a fun place to be!


To truly attain to Haute Couture Living, we ditch the box and step out into the glorious light of day, take in the world around you, embrace the beauty that is around us, and make it your own reflected by the garments we have designed for ourselves. We know ourself so well and have such a strong point of view, that our designer finds it inspiring to work with us in bringing our vision to fruition.


We are talking about daily making our dreams a reality, in a spirit of curiosity and personal fulfillment!


Couture is frivolous, but what good is storing up and maintaining wealth, if not to live while your alive in a constant state of inspiration and wonderment?


An artist may not give you the best financial advise, but an artist will teach you how to live! Let me be your artist, if only for a day! Let it be known:

There is a lifetime of discovery that can be lived in a single moment!
