"There are two ways of looking at life: as if nothing is a miracle, the other as if everything is a miracle .... I like to live my life and surround myself with people who believe the later. Jes is an amazing friend and inspiration. She brings positive beautiful energy to everyone around her and to every design she creates. It why I LOVE wearing her fabulous pieces! "
"Jes Wade is my go to for important events in my life. When I have an award ceremony, speaking engagement or event in NYC, London, Paris or Rwanda I always wear the Jes Wade collection. Not only does she dress me but she has also partnered with us to host events and design products to support our documentary film projects over the years."
"Jes your work is always stunning. Thank you for keeping up with my hectic shooting schedule and busy life. Whenever I have a big scene I always gravitate toward your collection... the ultimate chic armor! Thank you!!!"
“You have just gained your best admirer! I am crazy about your clothes and will make sure that more people know about your work. Thanks again for opening your home and atelier to the Couture Council and look forward to receiving my pant and the first piece of many to come. Xoxo”
"I wear your tops and dresses so often I feel like I owe you back pay!"
"Your sophisticated and elegant aesthetic always shines through. Thank you for this perfect jewel of a dress."

“I love fashion and I have never seen such rich textures and fabrics. Love, love, love!”
“The silver ‘warrior princess’ top, which I wore yesterday at the Midsummer Night’s Dream show+after-party, was admired by none other than Julie Taymor — “it looks like chain-mail... gorgeous!” I cannot tell you how many people raved about it — among them, the modelesque Okwui Okpokwasili, who plays Hippolyta — and the ‘ingénue’ (truly) Lilly Englert (Hermia) asked whether I was an actress... The top is positively MAGICAL!!! With Jes Wade clothes who needs plastic surgery??”
"One doesn't just happen upon a Jes Wade piece; One is led to it by secret channels. I was brought to Jes Wade's atelier by a friend who told me that I was in for a life changing fashion experience. What I found that day were clothes created of sumptuous materials and a visionary aesthetic for a modern woman. Since then, Jes Wade pieces have become the touchstone of my wardrobe. I encourage every woman to discover the Jes Wade secret for yourself."
