Born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Sacramento, California, Janelle’s passion for fashion began as a little girl when she spent many hours of playtime encouraging her sisters to play faux runway with her. Her childhood fashion show practice became a life obsession that addresses every woman’s need to feel sexy while having fun. Her goal is to create designs that complement the uniqueness of every woman and embraces a classy lady’s quirkiness.
Timeless icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Twiggy are the inspiration behind the Love by Janelle Cardenas design collection. Janelle Cardenas’s collection has been dubbed as “Old Hollywood glam with a touch of funk and intensity.” Glam and funk are seen through the creation of Janelle’s classic lines combined with feminine fabrics, texture, and contrast. Lush satin, prints, and vivid colors matched with clean line glamour are all signature elements of Love by Janelle Cardenas.
