Short bio: From a very young age, Jordana Woodland fell in love with the “art of dressing” and the idea of every woman having her own boudoir. Inspired by this love, in 2009 Jordana launched her lifestyle brand Naked Princess. The brand has grown to encompass lingerie, loungewear, home accessories and a wide array of custom-formulated beauty products—which count celebrities like Cindy Crawford, Lady Gaga and Mindy Kaling as fans. This busy entrepreneur and mother of three fills many roles in the company: from muse to creative director to model. Who better to represent the boudoir lifestyle than the Founder herself?
Jordana is the visionary behind Naked Princess. As founder & creative director, she is hands-on making sure that from start to finish every product meets a high standard of excellence. Jordana believes that a woman’s boudoir is not only a beautiful physical place, but also an emotional repast for women to balance the many facets of their daily lives.
Jordana makes sure that the Naked Princess experience is all inclusive, completely dynamic and quintessentially feminine. With her decisive vision and entrepreneurial spirit all while juggling three young children, Jordana is at the helm of her lifestyle brand.
