About Me

DeVonne Jackson is just an Earth Worker planting sprinkling conscious fashion seeds in her communities.

Based in Brooklyn, N.Y. of Jamaican, Bajan & Puerto Rican decent by way of West Africa, DeVonne is the Founder of Positive Obsession and is as colorful her roots. Wardrobe styling and personal shopping began DeVonne’s career in fashion over a decade ago. Professionally, she completed her M.A. in Media & Communications with a focus on Events & Media and began working in televised events for Telepictures, Black Entertainment Television and the MET Gala to name a few. She now works in International Production for A&E Networks.

DeVonne experienced the media’s effect on the fashion industry’s issue of waste. From garment production to construction, shipping to retail and the environmental effects that she realized most people knew nothing about. So, she began a fashion blog, opened a online vintage boutique and curated spaces to swap clothing and share knowledge and best practices to obsess positively.

Positive Obsession exists to spark sustainable lifestyle conversations through events, education and experience all to ignite a consumer shift. They are also the 2018 grantees of the Citizens Committee for New York City Composting grant for our textile research.
