The House of Juicy Couture
It all started in 2009 when mother Courtney saw a designer Juicy Couture bag and was completely relentless in figuring out how she could get her hands on it. She would call the store constantly, always asking for this one particular bag. Most houses started with the inspiration behind designers, meaning most house were created and named after big fashion brands.
The start of the house was very hysterical at first. At the time, nobody knew it would become one of the most prestigious houses of all time. Along with founding members Chi Chi and Dashawn, the House of Juicy Couture was about a family and creating a safe space for LGBTQ youth in the scene.
With Courtney being a notorious Face diva, the house naturally became known for raising the bar for that particular category. But over time, elevating everyone’s expectations within every category became what the House of Juicy Couture is known for. We conquer all categories in the ballroom scene from face (the beauty) to performance (vogue).
Everyone wants The Juicy Experience.
