Jennifer Haley Zeisler ’02 has always had a love for fashion and pursued it ever since she graduated with a degree in communications from Lynn.  


She moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting but her love for fashion took over. She became a buyer for Sainy, a fashion boutique, for three years before moving back to Delray Beach and opening her own boutique, Trilogy. Zeisler owned and operated Trilogy for three years before she sold it to move on to something new. Currently, she is working at Alene Too, the top boutique in Boca Raton, where she is a buyer and salesperson.


After four years of sketching and designing hand bags for fun, she felt it was time to take a chance. So she launched her own line and Jennifer Haley handbags hit the stores. “I couldn't be happier with the reaction I have received from the collection. It launched four weeks ago and has been doing fantastic. The bags sold out at my first trunk show and I hope to be in the top 20 boutiques by the end of this year,” she said.


When asked about her new collection of bags, Zeisler said, “The collection is based on our different moods and characters.  I have always believed that you are what you wear and that is what sets your mood for the day. I have been working and designing the five different bags – Schlep, Stroll, Schmooze, Structure and the Ruthie.  The Ruthie is named after my grandma. She has been always been a role model of mine. She was classy, elegant, also into fashion and always having a good time. The clutch has a nice grandma vintage flair to it.”


Zeisler is looking forward to growing the collection with some new designs she has come up with recently. The website for Jennifer Haley will be fully functional and shippable as of the first week of July. Visit the website and check out Jennifer ‘s handbags at www.shopjenniferhaley.com.
