Jeanette Limas was born in The Dominican Republic and began her education at The Mercy Jacquez Institute in that same country to study pattern making. Later, she enrolled in the prestigious School for the Arts, Altos de Chavón, also in The Dominican Republic. Upon graduation, Ms. Limas received the Young Designer of the Year Award, which allowed her to present her debut collection during Dominican Republic Fashion Week. She also won a scholarship to study at Parsons School of Design and relocated to New York City to pursue a higher education at that institute. In order to develop her already-commanding technique, she studied drapery at The Fashion Institute of Technology.
