HAVE A CELEBRITY STYLIST DESIGN A ONE OF A KIND JACKET FOR YOU!
CULT de JOUR is a luxury brand founded in 2016 by acclaimed fashion designer, stylist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur Tameka Foster Raymond. This brand was inspired by her work with top female music artist Lauryn Hill in 1996. From there she fell in love with vintage military and leather staple pieces.
The CULT de JOUR jackets are made of rare vintage or discontinued military pieces, most of which are no longer made in America. They are hand picked and carefully designed, and each jacket is custom made to order. After a brief consultation with Tameka your vision can come to life in a jacket. The CULT de JOUR brand exists through the collaboration of talented artists and musicians through her deep connection within the industry.
Tameka designs through 30 embellishments. No two jackets are alike. You also have the option to send her a brief description of what you like and she will take it from there.
“With every jacket I make, I’m always faced with the dilemma of actually shipping it out. I love them all.”
