Our Story

Lashawn Janae is a Charlotte based luxury clothing brand that focuses on creating fashion that produces confidence and embracing one's uniqueness. Founded by designer Dominique Striker, our designs are created to offer functionality, comfortability, and versatility, all while looking runway ready! Lashawn Janae is a must-have for those who are always on the move and embrace the essence of haute couture.

Dominique was inspired to design and create clothing while in college. As a lover of fashion and a stylist she found it hard to find the unique designs she saw in her head. She also had a hard time finding clothing that complimented her body shape. So she decided she would just create the clothes herself. She whipped out a sewing machine and taught herself to sew, years later she launched Lashawn Janae (est 2018). 

Dominique found that kimono dusters are very versatile, they leave plenty of room for creativity, and they give off a sexy, lux, and "Boss Babe" vibe. Many of her designs are inspired from this idea. She believes a kimono is like our cape. You put it on and you feel you can save the entire world. 

However, she doesn't stop at kimonos. Each design is unique, something you won't find just anywhere. Because who wants to blend in, right?

Lashawn Janae is more than just a luxury clothing brand; it's a testament to the empowerment found in embracing one's uniqueness. Our vision is to create and offer fashion that not only enhances confidence but also celebrates individuality.

Each garment in our collection is handcrafted to order, ensuring an experience tailored just for you. We take pride in our commitment to sustainability, utilizing only eco-friendly fabrics sourced from ethical and sustainable producers.

Our mission is to offer functionality, comfortability, and versatility without compromising on style. From the intricate stitching to the luxurious fabrics, every detail reflects our dedication to providing runway-ready looks that seamlessly blend elegance with practicality.
