Jane By Design begins with an unusual story of a young unpopular teenage girl, Erica Dasher as Jane Quimby, who lives with her unemployed older brother due to her father's death and absent mother. As her brother struggles to make ends meet, Jane seeks an employment opportunity working as an intern for a famous designer. However, due to a case of mixed applications Jane finds herself as a personal assistant managing the busy designer's work and trying to be an normal high school student at the same time. Just two episodes in Jane struggles to keep everyone satisfied. But never doubting herself, she balances school in the suburbs and chaotic life in the city. From impromptu wardrobe changes to having the hottest guy at her perfectly manicured finger tips, Jane is certainly in for a ride.
Normally, life inside the fashion industry is portrayed as brutal, harsh, and sometimes heartbreaking. Although Jane by Design tells a fictional story of a high school student managing a designers brand, it sure feels great to see lighthearted, youthful television still exists. The most recent episode is a perfect example. Jane receives her first check from the Donovan Decker fashion house and is immediately thrilled to pay off the debt her brother owes; now that just warms our hearts!
