TERESE SYDONNA | WHERE MODERN FUNCTIONALITY  AND COMFORT CONNECT

The Brand

Terese Sydonna is the brand fighting fashion’s inauthenticity crisis by empowering women to be more of themselves through designs that reflect how they feel, who they are and where they are going.

Women are facing an incredible amount of insecurity in the workplace and in their daily lives. With a deep understanding of how self-worth is impacted, Terese Sydonna sets out to empower women to show up as their authentic selves so they can confidently reveal their inner strength – their untapped superpowers.

We believe our work has proven that insecurity is temporary, and all women can live their fullest lives through designs that help release them from a world of purposeless-driven fashion.

Be Bold. Join us in the fight. 

The passion driving our brand emanates from our founder, Jamaican-born, New York-bred, Terese Sydonna Brown. An accomplished businesswoman, Terese transitioned from a career in finance, buying and merchandising to work with top designers such as Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacobs when she decided to create a new approach to fashion that would go much further and wrap women in more of themselves.

Stylish, yet maintenance free, 95% of the collection is machine washable, quick drying, and wrinkle-free.

Our prints are original and exclusive to Terese Sydonna.

Soft to the touch our digital print solution uses ink technology that is water based and free of contaminants, making them non-hazardous, non-toxic and 100% biodegradable.

Made in Manhattan, New York, USA.

Terese’s fusion of her vibrant Jamaican culture, Japanese art, and architecture is evident in every collection. She credits her parents for instilling a strong work ethic and love for community. Along with her grandmother’s teachings and experiences working on both the corporate and creative sides of the fashion industry, Terese sets herself apart with her knowledge of fit, construction, prints and mixing fabrications. She thoroughly understands the human condition of the customer as well as the buyer’s point of view. These experiences served as the catalyst for her namesake label and lifestyle brand, Terese Sydonna. While working in the corporate world, she recognized the importance to create a safe space for women to be more of themselves. Through her Terese Sydonna designs she empowers more women to tap into their inner superhero to then show up their authentic selves and do good in their communities. 

Terese is especially passionate about helping women entrepreneurs. With over a decade of self-starter experience designing collections for big box retailers, she has advised and guided the building of fashion brands from start-up design to growth stages. She is also a mentor at her alma mater, Lafayette College and sits on several advisory boards centered around entrepreneurship.
