Ronica Marie Jackson is from the small town of Mercedes, TX. When she was 12 years old, she started competing in pageants. Through pageantry she discovered her passion for fashion and every time she would try on the many different gowns and other outfits she would think of alterations she could do to make them more unique and give them more of her personal style. When Ronica was working at a call center for a hospital she knew she wasn’t completely happy. The future she had envisioned was not what her life was like and she felt that something was missing. And looking through inspiration she started doodling on napkins and other random pieces of paper. In 2013, she started designing in her mind different dresses and suits until she finally bought a sketch book and other design tools. In 2014, she sketched out an entire collection and started taking the steps to start her clothing line. Ronica Marie Couture made its official debut on February 2015. Since then, Ronica continues to grow as a self-taught designer.
