We sell Women’s Ready-to-wear Contemporary Clothing at affordable prices without compromising great quality. Jersey dresses, separates and jumpsuits designed by owner Odessa Bowden-Sierra. When Odessa Bowden-Sierra founded Nobody Jones in 2003, a local high-end fashion boutique, she wanted to cater to the people in her community, which is the greater Crenshaw area.
“I worked downtown, and I lived on Crenshaw and 54th,” she said. “I thought it was such a cute area where I lived, and we really needed something.”
At the time Bowden-Sierra worked for a high-end fashion designer, Custo Barcelona, as a sales representative and showroom manager, and she felt that she could fill a gap that was missing in her neighborhood. “I wanted to cater to my people, because we had nothing like this (high fashion) anywhere near our neighborhood,” she said. The concept of Nobody Jones is pretty simple. The boutique has high fashion inspired styles at affordable prices. Bowden-Sierra makes some of the clothes, she purchases some wholesale, and there are designers who bring their products to her store.
“We always use the best quality fabrics from high end designers,” she said. “And we’re able to still offer them at affordable prices.”
The store is known for jumpsuits, dresses, and separates. More importantly, customer service is greater at a boutique like Nobody Jones than it is at a department store.
“With boutique shopping, you get a lot of things customized to you,” Bowden-Sierra said. “I get to know my customers, and I’ve grown a lot with a lot of them.”
Bowden-Sierra is typically at the store, so she is able to personally interact with most of her customers, which can form a stronger bond, and allow her to know her customers’ tastes. She caters to her customers’ needs by hand selecting all of the pieces in the shop.
