Join us for our first Aspiring Young Women's Network breakfast for 2024 with guest speaker Jimena Kotsomitis ('01)
The journey of St Margaret’s alumni Jimena Alejandra Kotsomitis (‘01) from lawyer to creator of a lifestyle brand tells a story of perseverance, planning and pivoting. After graduating from St Margaret’s, Jimena studied a dual degree of law/creative industries at QUT, then followed her dream to move to New York on turning 21. There she studied for and passed the NY Bar Exam and practised law in Manhattan as NBC’s in-house intellectual property associate. She returned home after three years, and big changes were afoot. In 2016, she founded the label Jimena Alejandra in Brisbane. This contemporary jewellery and lifestyle brand is known for unique, handmade pieces that balance classic and maximalist codes. As founder and designer, Jimena’s goal is to evoke joy and optimism through colourful designs that champion the use of semi-precious gemstones. Today, this former lawyer, now mother and entrepreneur, is passionate about inspiring and empowering young girls to take risks and to follow their dreams no matter how far-fetched they might seem.
