Meet Crystal Jordan of Amor Allure

Today we’d like to introduce you to Crystal Jordan.

Amor Allure is a clothing line inspired by Crystal Jordan; a talented freelance designer from Atlanta, Georgia. Born December 25, 1989, grew up in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia. In 2008, after working for years designing and drafting ideas for an original line of clothing, she received her high school diploma from Frederick Douglass High School in Atlanta, Georgia.

Later that year, she enrolled in Bauder College, taking up courses in Advanced Sewing and Fashion Illustration. By 2010, Crystal was awarded an Associates Degree in Apparel Design. Before graduating, she partook on an internship at Gizzelle James Couture, a leading designer in custom alterations with collaborations with BET and Fergie, putting her on the fast track to becoming an experienced designer.

On May 28, 2011, Crystal Jordan debuted her first line FashionsByCJ, at Encore, during the Your Ticket To Hollywood Fashion Show. Her work has been seen fashioned by the likes of Camilla Poindexter (actress and TV personality).

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Being an entrepreneur is not easy sometimes I want to give up. I battle this a lot because unfortunately I barely get sales and recognize. I am still trying to make a name for myself and brand.

Amor Allure – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Amor Allure is created by fashion designer Crystal Jordan. Amor Allure is for the fashion-savvy women looking for timeless pieces. Amor Allure’s mission is to create fashionable, comfortable clothing that demands a wow factor.

Amor Allure offers casual chic street wear. We have something for everyone. What set us apart from other brands, we don’t sell sex. I see a lot of designer barley have models wearing anything and call it a dress or outfit, here at Amor Allure we still believe in classy.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
I personally define success as not living from paycheck to paycheck; being financially stable. Everyone knowing my brand and my brand in stores selling millions.
