In the realm of fashion, intentionality and purpose are the driving forces behind LaStar Jackson’s brand, Saint Avenue. Jackson’s journey, as explored in a recent episode of Conversation Piece, is a testament to the power of resilience and the pursuit of one’s passion.

Raised in East Chicago, Jackson’s love for fashion was nurtured by his mother, who instilled the importance of dressing neatly and with purpose, even in the face of limited resources. “She was, you know, made it a point to kind of have us always dressing nice and neat despite, you know, the circumstances,” Jackson shared.

His involvement in organizing a student fashion show sparked a creative fire within him, igniting a passion that would propel him forward, despite initial setbacks with his early clothing brands.

It was the unwavering belief of a friend that reignited Jackson’s determination, leading him to establish Saint Avenue in 2016. From its inception, the brand has been a reflection of Jackson’s commitment to infusing each piece with intentionality and storytelling. The brand’s name itself represents “a virtuous person progressing towards their purpose,” a mantra that permeates through every design.

Saint Avenue’s creations honor cultural significance and are imbued with meaning, setting them apart in the fashion landscape. Jackson’s dedication to building community is equally evident, as seen in his successful collaborations during the All-Star Weekend, featuring partnerships with brands like We Don’t Run and artists like Fitz.

Throughout his journey, Jackson has embraced the lessons of patience, trust, and open dialogue – qualities that have strengthened his collaborations and propelled his growth.
