Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Jamyce Patterson worked as an office manager in a prominent healthcare company for over 10 years, before she realized that her love was in fashion. Overcoming diversity, being the only African American woman in her office, she started her entrepreneur career as a designer and stylist for her online fashion boutique. Although she gained national recognition for her unique pieces, she found it hard to transition on a local level. In speaking with other entrepreneurs, Patterson realized that other Pittsburgh businesses also had difficulty in promoting their wares locally. In assisting small businesses, as well as her own fashion company, she created PGH Fashion Fridays that produced several Friday night events that gave many struggling entrepreneurs and artists an opportunity to attract new customers. Soon after, she expanded her brand and renamed her company “PGH Style & GLAM” a fashion and beauty production company that specializes in jaw dropping events, tv shows, model management and fashion and beauty services.
PGH Style & GLAM provides a platform where fashion and beauty entrepreneurs, models, and artists can build bigger brands, promote their businesses and network with potential clients and media. Patterson has worked with hundreds of local and nationally recognized designers, models and businesses to engage Pittsburgh’s emerging fashion scene with new and exciting events and shows. In her success, Patterson has been featured in numerous magazines, newspaper articles, and radio and TV interviews and have connected with over 5000 social media supporters. Currently, PGH Style & Glam is working on several upcoming productions, including their first Annual Glam Week PGH, fashion charity gala, and a modeling TV show that will air in the fall of 2018.
With numerous sold-out events, PGH Style & Glam will produce their biggest and boldest production yet, called Glam Week PGH ’17, from July 27th to July 30th.
Glam Week PGH ’17 is a 4-day event filled with make overs, beauty stations, a modeling competition, glam workshops, fashion showcases, performances and so much more. Glam Week PGH ’17 will spotlight award winning designers and entrepreneurs, amazing models and artists, and a host of local celebrities. This spectacular line up is all about the glamour!
Believing in giving back, Patterson will sponsor an Annual PGH Style & Glam Charity Ball this October at the Pittsburgh Center For The Arts. This star-studded event will feature local designers and artists, politicians, supporters, and national organizations. A portion of the proceeds will go toward women’s and children’s needs in the immediate Pittsburgh area. For details on these events and more, please check out their website at www.pghstyleandglam.com.
