Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Markets and Culture from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, our CEO pondered the next chapter of her life. She decided to pursue her passion for design, and enrolled in design and leather goods production courses at Ars Sutoria in Milan, Italy.
Jessica packed up her chicest wardrobe and jetted off to the glamorous northern region of Italy. For the duration of her time in Milan, Jessica resided at the luxurious Excelsior Hotel. The hotel exuded everything Jessica loved about design. From the creamy velvet drapes, abundance of fresh white orchids, gleaming chandeliers, the grand coffee bar, to the vintage architecture… the Excelsior Hotel reignited Jessica’s love for interior decor.
Upon completion of her design courses, Jessica returned to Dallas with a clear vision in mind for what she wanted to pursue in life. She got straight to work on a viable business plan for a luxury home decor company that would tie in elements she loved from the Excelsior Hotel, the high fashion she studied in Milan, and her personal tastes of what she envisions a glamorous and fashionable home to look like.
Jessica decided to produce a candle collection for her first Sicily Hill product launch. She produced the champagne candle as her signature candle, because it conveys the glamour, opulence, classic, celebratory elements Sicily Hill exudes.
In continuing the product development process, Jessica prioritized launching new products that remained cohesive to her vision for Sicily Hill. Therefore, the candle collection’s fragrance palate is exclusively cocktail themed. Jessica adores the vision of branching together the social aspect of our customer’s lives of attending glamorous events and drinking exquisite cocktails, with the relaxing times of their lives when they are burning a candle, snuggled up in a cashmere throw at home. It is this concept of intertwining the segments of Sicily Hill’s customer’s lives that set our brand apart from the competition.
As Sicily Hill expands, Jessica thoughtfully launches products that continue the cohesiveness of the brand, and add glamorous touches to the Sicily Hill customer’s life.
The launch of the art collection is the most personal collection for Jessica to release. The art collections are photographs Jessica has captured on her travels, and provide an intimate perspective into how she views the world. Jessica feels immense joy to bring her photography into the homes of Sicily Hill’s customers to inspire travel lust, adventure, and an appreciation for culture.
The Sicily Hill products are not the only design elements Jessica has expressed for the Sicily Hill brand. The leather textures present throughout the website and packaging are all odes to Jessica’s time studying leather goods production in Milan, and represent the beginning of her path towards building Sicily Hill.
Additionally, Sicily Hill’s social media channels provide an intimate look into the emotions Jessica wishes to convey through Sicily Hill’s brand, and her vision for the direction of product growth. She adores exuding happiness, celebration, glamour, and inspiration on Sicily Hill’s social media.
Jessica feels immense pleasure to be able to design, develop, and provide products that will glamourize and enhance the lives of Sicily Hill customers.
