Jane has had a diverse and prolific career in designing textiles, home furnishings, fashion, and jewelry. She had signature fashion and jewelry collections that sold at Barneys New York as well as other high-end retailers from 2002-2007. Her designs have been spotted on celebrities including Salma Hayak, Brook Shields, and Cindy Crawford. "My goal with the Brahms Mount collection is to build on the clean aesthetic of Claudia Brahms and carry it forward with additional colors, fiber constructions and weave textures. I'm a weaver, machine knitter, and natural dyer so I'm very hands-on with my product development. My current inspirations come mostly from antique textiles, especially rustic French linens and tickings. New on the line this season is our "Feather Stripe" and "Leno Stripe" both of which were influenced by antique linen and lace. I see opportunities for line expansion in the bedroom and beyond. Brahms Mount has tremendous growth opportunities."
