J. Von Stratton Designs

J. Von Stratton is a Seattle-based apparel design company founded in 2007 by Jamie Von Stratton. Every garment in the JVS shop is handmade, and each garment is thoughtfully designed with the fun and quirky personality of the JVS woman in mind.

A strong background in theater, dance, and burlesque; Jamie focused a good portion of her years in business creating custom costumes for world famous Drag Queens, Burlesque, and Circus stars. In early 2015 she decided to extend her design chops to the expansive world of online retail, thus creating a handcrafted ready-to-wear collection definitive of Jamie’s love of retro kitsch and glamour. This spring welcomes the debut of JVS Bridal, a quaint collection inspired by a few of Jamie’s favorite iconic women.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

There is a lot out there when it comes to Bridal wear. Whether you want to wear a ball gown or Princess Leia’s gold bikini, the #1 thing you want is to feel good about what you’re wearing. My Bridal line is currently a 4 piece collection of custom dresses, and one customizable bolero. I work with you to help pick the right fabric, make it to the right size, and ensure that you feel happy. It’s important to me that the clients who trust me to make them feel amazeballs on their special day, know that I care about their desire for the perfect dress.

"I want to thank Jamie Von Stratton, a fabulous designer, collaborator, and friend."
