BEHIND THE BRAND :
I, Jennifer Sinigal Bell-Cornelius, was born and raised in Long Beach, CA by a single mother. We did not have the luxury of shopping at high end department stores, so my mom would take me to thrift stores and let me ROAM around. Like my mother, I too became a single mother in high school and thrifting became an even greater necessity.
Naturally, I was drawn to accessories and quickly discovered the sovereignty of unique garnishes and how each could influence the vibe of any ensemble. Spending hours rummaging and envisioning fashion-forward concepts, was utterly supreme. I felt so fulfilled and loved that I was able to express individuality through these vintage pieces. I realized early on how bold of a statement accessories made. I knew that a statement belt, earring, or hat could effortlessly, elevate any ensemble.
My goal is to empower women of all walks of life. I promote women believing in themselves from the perspective that increased self-esteem generates momentous energy. My core mission is to encourage women everywhere to brazenly maneuver through their journey with courage, confidence, resilience and intention. All awhile remaining unapologetic traveling through life unhindered with purpose.
Being a genuine accessory fiend and an avid vintage collector of belts, I embraced an array of designs, and have acquired an array of pieces throughout my fashion journey. As my thrifting finds flourished, I noticed a trend of intricately designed belts that were aesthetically great, but poor in quality. This realization drew me to creating high quality, vintage-inspired belts. With a vast collection of new and experienced fashions, my vintage treasures remained my favored go-to’s.
With an affinity for quality craftsmanship, I strive to carry on these traditions today for continued inspiration in my designs, drawing on the feelings of fulfillment and happiness that came with finding the perfect flattering piece to add to my collections. This is my mission – this is Born To Roam.
