She currently owns a fashion design studio in Gainesville, Florida, “Jacquelyn Brooks Designs”, where she custom designs and constructs women’s apparel ranging from game day dresses to wedding gowns.
Her most recent accomplishments include being named one of HOME magazine’s “Forty under 40″, reaching the semi-final castings for “Project Runway” and “Fashion Star”, showcasing her talents at “Orlando Fashion Week 2013″, “The Southern Women’s Show- Orlando 2012″, “Gainesville Fashion Week 2011-2013″, “Fashion Week Nashville 2010″ and producing her own annual charity fashion show event, “Jacquelyn Brooks Designs’ Runways and Rescues 2011-2013″ which raises funding and awareness for local animal rescues.
