The Last… With Jessie Randall

Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Loeffler Randall

Hi, I’m Jessie Randall. I’m a crafter, a designer and a mom of 3 kids living in Brooklyn, New York. I started my shoe line, Loeffler Randall, in 2004 with my husband Brian. We just celebrated our 20th anniversary this week! We have a lovely design office and showroom in Soho in NYC and a shop on Prince Street nearby. Over the years, our line has grown to include handbags, accessories and RTW. I’m obsessed with tennis, interior design, home renovation projects, writing, flowers, sewing and travel.
