Blue Fish Clothing
BLUE FISH THEN… Jennifer Barclay, at the age of 17, started making clothing for herself. She could find little to wear that expressed her creativity – clothes that said “I am me!”, that she felt comfortable in, that were fun, wearable, & easy to care for.
Her parents’ washing machine was taken over for Jennifer’s dyeing whims, and her garage at home became a maze of drying t-shirts on clotheslines in every color of the rainbow. From the very start, the word ‘blue’ and the icon of a fish paired themselves together in a playful, natural way to create something that meant more than a color name.
The word ‘blue’ was not always printed in its obvious color selection, and as time passed, Jennifer no longer saw it as a color word but simply as a word free of boundaries… topsy turvy and free to be anything she wanted it to be. The marriage of unusual shapes and colors began, and Blue Fish became a lasting icon for clothing without rules.
COMPLETELY DARE TO BE BEAUTIFUL. EVERYWHERE, WONDER.
Her outside the box thinking with colors and patterns became the defining aspect of Jennifer’s clothing, almost from the start. With dreamlike prints and limitless color, there was nothing else like Blue Fish to be found in the world.
Visiting craft fairs and music festivals on the east coast, the colorful, creative clothing quickly became regionally known. But it wasn’t until friends encouraged Jennifer to attempt the famed New York Pret in 1986, a major trade show, that Blue Fish exploded onto the scene.
