Modeling and Fashion

Vanessa Mathison had modeled for 18 years before taking a break to have children. She has never been a stranger to public attention, and she understands the weight of being in the spotlight.

Her shift into being a mother forced her to adapt to her career. She expanded beyond modeling to becoming a fashions designer courtesy of her partnership with Niccole Kroll. The relationship was forged into an alliance of a clothing line known as KEA + JOBY.

Vanessa explained how she became a partner for a clothing brand called KEA + JOBY, "The clothing was already in existence! It was founded by Niccole Kroll here in New York City, and it was the smallest little collection that she sold to five stores in the Upper West Side. I was a fan of the clothing line, and she had a cult following, just here with the Upper West Side moms. I met her one day, just through a play date, and we started talking. She said, "I'm going to walk away from the business; it's just too much with three children." I told her, absolutely do not walk away from this business. I will be your business partner. And she said, "I'd never even thought about that. I would love that; let's do it!" So, I joined, and Niccole and I became full partners a year ago. Within four months, we went from selling in five local stores here in Manhattan to over 150 across the United States. All [KEA + JOBY] needed was exposure."

The point of the clothing line was to make special clothing for unique kids, "The clothes sell themselves, they're fantastic. They're so soft that the kids don't want to take them off. The style is so clean and basic; there's a sophistication to them. And they don't look like every other child's clothes on the playground. You want your child to look special."
