About us

Janay Deann Designs was born when Janay Winsell, a St. Louis Missouri entrepreneur, put her talents to creating a few tutus for her daughters for a birthday bash. Now, she and her team of assistants keep multiple sewing machines humming, creating exciting new designs for toddlers to adults. What started as tutus, has expanded to include new styles of elaborate pageant dresses, special occasion dresses, red carpet dresses and more. 

Her designs have been showcased across America through web sites, TV spots, local news, commercials and more. More and more celebrities have requested Janay's creations for their own kids and for gifts. Recently, The Tiara Twins were filmed for a new TLC show wearing some of Janay's new designs. Skye Jackson from the Disney show Jesse was seen on an LA red carpet next to Toddlers and Tiaras star, Devin McHenry who was sporting a one of a kind JDD original dress. Other sightings include Eden Wood and Housewives of NJ Melissa Gorga’s daughter, Antonia to name a few.  Janay's designs have recently graced the runway during NYFW at Style Fashion Week New York.  Janay has recently been asked to return to NYC to show her new collection this fall. 

Janay's creations are filled with elegance and whimsy delight. Perfect for holiday parties, pageants, red carpet events or any special occasion, her designs will WOW everyone.

Why is she so successful? Ask her, and she blushes. "I put equal parts of love, passion and creativity into every creation and treat each one as if I were making it for my own precious daughters."
