First and foremost, the Idlewild women are a family who love art, design and fashion.
Julie Clark and Jessica Murray purchased Idlewild in May 2018. Their initial motivation came from Tessa Clark (daughter and cousin) who was (and still is) the manager of the store.
Julie’s long-standing passion in the art/design world is her ceramic work, however she has been a bit of a curator/entrepreneur most of her life. You can shop her jewelry in store and online here.
Jessica is a graphic designer, photographer, Flâneur, and Francophile, as well as the creator of a line of bags inspired by her years in Paris. She utilizes her photography on the bags and printed products. Shop her designs here.
Tessa is an emerging Fashion Designer based in Cincinnati, Ohio. A graduate of DAAP at the University of Cincinnati, her brand, Grind and Glaze is stocked in store and on our website, idlewildwoman.com. Tessa was a design contestant on Season 17 of Project Runway on Bravo television. She made it to the top 5!
ABOUT THE STORE
Through Tessa and her education in the fashion design industry, Julie and Jessica have come to understand the importance of choosing sustainable and ethical products. This has become a goal in their decisions on purchasing for the store.
Enhancing and empowering women to look and feel their very best is the other all important ingredient to their goals—to offer services and products to help women celebrate their bodies along with their personal style—while looking fashionable and building a quality timeless wardrobe.
Cincinnati offers a bountiful local art and cultural scene—and Idlewild is in the midst of it. Located in the vibrant OTR district, Julie, Jessica and Tessa are embracing the local scene and will be bringing local art and fashion into the store at every opportunity while helping to contribute to the local community.
