The future belongs to companies that believe in return on purpose as much as return on investment.


The fashion and textile industries are at a crossroads. For too long, we have been taking finite resources from the ground and making products to be used and thrown away. This "take-make-waste" way of doing business supports a linear economy, which no longer works for businesses, people, or the planet. A circular economy aims to design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.

Leading with our core values of honesty and integrity, we build meaningful, personalized partnerships to achieve sustainable success for our clients. Partnerships that revolve around circularity in product, profit, people, and the planet.


Jordan Alliance Group (JAG) is a Black-owned and women-led boutique management consulting firm serving companies in the fashion retail and textile industries. We specialize in the holistic planning and execution of strategies that integrate profitability with the principles of circularity and corporate social responsibility. This purpose-driven framework helps a company transform its core operating model to streamline operations, reduce waste and cost, increase customer engagement, and build a socially responsible business model based on the circular economy.

SUPPORTING GROWTH Now more than ever, personal enrichment and professional development are essential in the business of fashion retail. Our JAG Learn program is a professional learning and development service, designed to promote and sustain career growth and prepare the next generation leaders in fashion.


CULTIVATING INNOVATION The JAG Collective is an advisory and referral service for startups, independent consultants, and corporations seeking to supplement their boards with diversity of resources, ideas, and expertise.


PROMOTING AGILITY Our virtual consulting subscription plan JAG On-Demand provides startups and small-sized companies regular support from our team of expert consultants without having to permanently increase the size of their teams or get budget approval for large fixed-fee projects.


MAKING PURPOSE PROFITABLE As we shape the future with strategy, innovation and technology, speed and agility are a must. The JAG team will transform your operations from concept-to-consumer, building company culture and value networks that fully take advantage of the concepts of circularity. This is the only way forward.


When change is the only constant, transformation is the only solution for continued growth and profitability. We work with companies to create customized, strategic solutions that cater to the unique needs of the business.
We're working to demystify fashion circularity. We're transforming our collective mindset to see waste and disposability as a design flaw. We're embracing new materials and technologies that restore and regenerate.
