Jennifer Jones has a background in fashion, having worked in the UK and Australia for iconic brands such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Nike and Diesel. After 10 years in the fashion industry she left Diesel as Managing Director of Australia and started “Have you met Miss Jones” in 2006.
The business originally started as a fashion agency but her roots have drawn her back into the world of home-wares. Jennifer’s parents John and Millie have had an export company for the past 35 years, exporting beautiful items from the Philippines to the UK and Europe. Over many dinners and Sunday lunches a plan was hatched to launch their home-wares into the Australian market.
“Have you met Miss Jones” now operates as a home-wares company specializing in bone china and other beautiful items from the Philippines.
