We had the good fortune of connecting with Jonnequia Cavett and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jonnequia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind my brand began officially in 2017 with the motivation from those closest to me. I have always had a love for clothing, fashion and putting things together for special occasions. I have been blessed to fail, not be consistent , afford business coaches , resourceful people , successful business owners who believed in me. I initially named my brand “Haute Shenanigans”- with the thoughts of high class ,fashionably elegant and high spirited individuals now renamed in 2019 “JHauteness” Jonnequia’s Hauteness. Designer, J.D. Cavett aims to aspire to inspire women through J. Hauteness by showing you how to fulfill life’s desires. Whether it’s through her clothing line, lifestyle blog, personal testimony of balancing Motherhood or showing you how to align and design your mind, body and spirit. Take a look around and get inspired to be HAUTE.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a member of the United States Air Force full time. So with being a full-time business owner time management is vital. I have been a proud member for 9 years. It has not been easy but with God all things have been possible. I overcame the challenges understanding that if I don’t stand for something I will fall for anything. I have learned many lessons such as time management, life skills, how to lead, customer service and logistical skills. I would like the world to know that my brand is ME, my brand is a visual of the world in a high fashionable sense, no matter what you do keep it classy.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
In Houston I would invite them to Eddie V’s, also the infamous Turkey leg Hut, Bloom and Bee and also Sam Moon for the best accessory shopping.

In Jackson,MS I would take them to Big Apple Inn on Farish St. I will also take them to Johnny Ts, 4th Ave and Kemistry for happy hour or night life. Brunch will be at Strawberry Cafe in Madison. We will also stop in Distrct at Eastover to catch Sal &Mookies FROSE’ and pizza.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate my success to God for leading me, my son Jefe, my supportive family and friends, my amazing Haute individuals, Tanya Kelker ( she spoke life into me), My initial brand development coach Kenneth(K.Marsh) and my leader of Wealthy Vibes Tribe (Jenni Graham).
