Jessica Turkman has been passionate about fashion and design since she was a child. She has always been designing and creating. This young woman from Marseilles was a laureate in the 2014-15 M Major competition. She had created her company « Gwapita » in 2012 specialising in costume fashion jewellery.
She started off by presenting her prototypes to the « SO » jewellers in Aix-en-Provence, who immediately accepted to be a commercial outlet for her. Very quickly she was spotted by the department store Le Printemps in the La Valentine shopping centre and many other boutiques.
In 2015 the label has more than 100 French and International retail outlets.
