About the Designer

Raised in Chicago, Bari Ackerman, (the J is for Jill, her middle name) was originally trained in the theatre arts. With a passion for costume and design, it was a natural progression to turn to fashion. Bari began creating jewelry from vintage and found pieces in 2000. By 2005 Bari had turned her focus to handbags when she was unable to find a feminine vintage-style look that suited her own needs.
