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 Vouge patterns at age 9, and developing my best couture living freedom concept in personal style. Despite secular schooling, this wisdom alone qualifies me to do the same for others, which I have done for hundreds of individuals, it's the point of this website to do for millions!

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

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

  • Who you are.
  • What you are about.
  • Where you're going.

And reflect exactly that by what you wear!

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.

See your true Couture self-concept develop, as you benefit from the years of couture experience and knowledge that my fashion design team and I have to share.

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

We also urge you to participate in all the pages of this site and add your own views and opinions, as that is how you grow and develop your best couture concept and really learn what works for you.

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

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

We are talking about daily making your 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!
