Dyetology

Dyetology features hand-dyed accessories and apparel.

Jackie Ayres has tons of experience in the fashion design industry. She’s previously worked as a fashion designer for Lane Bryant, Bath & Body Works, and Thirty-One Gifts. 

“I’ve designed everything from casual wear and denim, to accessories and handbags,” she explains. “During my 17-year corporate career, I traveled the world, won awards for my design work, and had the honor of leading talented design teams.”

All of this experience, and talent, gave Ayres the tools she needed to launch her very own business – Dyetology. 

Dyetology is a line of unique, hand-dyed accessories and apparel using natural fibers such as cotton, linen, rayon, bamboo, and silk. 

“Dyetology is all about beautiful colors and comfort,” she says. “As a designer I hate to see women frustrated by their closet and the process of getting dressed. Our pieces are easy to wear. We keep the silhouettes simple and the fabrics are soft and comfortable to wear. Dyetology pieces are a great addition to any woman’s wardrobe.”

Through Dyetology, you’ll find a variety of items including scarves, shawls, apparel, and even small accessories like socks, headbands, and bracelets. 

 

Prices for items from Dyetology range from $15 and go up to $98, but when you purchasing from Dyetology, you’ll find that each piece is unique and no two are alike. 

“Our pieces are super soft and feel so good on, you won’t want to take it off,” she says. “Quality is important to us – we focus on using natural fibers for our fabrics and also use professional-grade dyes. Natural fibers are soft, durable, and let your skin breathe. Natural fibers are more expensive than synthetic fibers and materials, but it’s worth it to us! We want our pieces to be her go-to pieces in her closet that she will want to wear season after season.”

Ayres isn’t just creating unique pieces for customers, she’s also giving back to the community. Dyetology has a mission program called “Socks for Hope.” For every sock purchase a customer makes, a pair is donated to a local homeless shelter. 

“We started that program in March 2017 and were able to donate 519 pairs in 2017 and want to double this number in 2018,” says Ayres. “We started this mission after learning that socks are the most needed clothing items in homeless shelters.”

Ayres says that she’s recently launched some new products, like dresses, for spring that she’s really excited about. “We also are doing the Columbus Arts Festival this June, which is new for us,” she says. “We will also be launching new products and colors for fall – so stay tuned!”

Currently, Ayres says that there is no storefront for Dyetology, just an online shop and participation at approximately 15-20 art shows and festivals throughout Ohio as well as out of state during the year.
