Gloria Vanderbilt’s designer jean launches with Mohan Murjani. Known for its fit, signature embroidery, and swan logo, Gloria Vanderbilt becomes the original designer jean.
Its turning point comes in 1989, when Gross and Dabah create the Amanda—the best fitting jean in America—and distribute it to a broad selection of retailers. Their focus, drive, and entrepreneurial spirit results in them becoming a leading wholesale company.
The Gloria Vanderbilt company is founded by Isaac Dabah and Jack Gross.
In 2002, Gloria Vanderbilt joins the Jones Group under the denim division (Jones Jeanswear), which grows through the launch and addition of Bandolino, Erika, Energie, and L.E.I.
The company’s success continues in 2006 with the decision to distribute L.E.I. Junior’s and Girl’s exclusively to Wal-Mart.
Capitalizing on the success and brand recognition of Nine West, the company launches Nine West Jeans.
In 2010, Jones Jeanswear expands its portfolio, securing the licensing rights to the Jessica Simpson Collection. A year later, the Tween division launches. Vintage America Blues launches.
Sycamore purchases the Jones Group and separates Jones Jeanswear into an individual company, operating under Nine West Holdings. Jones Jeanswear is renamed
One Jeanswear Group.
In 2016 One Jeanswear Group secures the licensing rights to William Rast Men’s and Women’s.
In 2017 One Jeanswear Group secures the licensing rights to Martha Stewart with QVC.
In 2018 OJG signed licensing agreements for Skinnygirl Jeans and Ella Moss.
Today we have a growing portfolio of 8 company owned brands, 5 licensed brands and a private label division that designs and produces product for over 30 brands throughout North America.
