Ariel Jillian Smith born and raised in Seattle, Washington, has been interested in the arts her whole life. At the age of 10 she designed her first skirt thanks to a sewing machine her mom had purchased from a thrift store. While not always having the funds to buy the best clothes,

Ariel Jillian was creative with her wardrobe and made the best out of what she had. Ariel Jillian debuted her first fashion show as a senior in high school, which was put on to raise money for cancer awareness. She also received a Washington Academic for Vocational Excellence (W.A.V.E) Scholarship for $20,000 for her works and efforts in her fashion class.

Ariel Jillian majored in Fashion Design and Merchandising at Washington State University and graduated in 2014. As a junior she received a Rising Star award for her Final Collection. Ariel Jillian was also involved in her school as Vice President of Black Student Union, Co Chair of God's Harmony Gospel Choir, President of her chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and held several jobs. After college Ariel Jillian moved to Birmingham, Alabama where she joined the Teach For America Program. She taught at Bessemer City High school which is where her passion for designing Prom dresses started and flourished. A few years later Ariel Jillian would move to Atlanta, Georgia to fully pursue her dream of becoming a Fashion Designer.

Ariel Jillian has been featured in countless fashion shows including New York Fashion Week, Nashville Fashion Week, and Magic City Fashion Week to name a few. Her love for custom made dresses flourished in Atlanta because she saw a need in the industry for more options and customization. Today, Ariel Jillian is thrilled at the opportunity to be involved in so many other young womens and mens lives as they learn how to fully express themselves through fashion and dress. She also has started a children's ministry called the Kingdom Kids Academy where they learn life skills and learn about the Lord. Ariel Jillian is also excited to further her ministry by offering scholarships to deserving Juniors and Seniors around the country.
