A true romantic renaissance visual artist who has been trained in Malibu CA and Florence Italy brings his STYLE to his hometown of Franklin TN.
Located in department stores and local boutiques around the world, Jeff Garner has turned his vision into a caring successful fashion business!
Sitting across from a charming and strikingly handsome man, I tune into his soft, clear and precisely spoken words. Am I the lucky winner, or does Jeff have a way of making everyone he encounters feel like they are the only one in the room? He is an artist who has the gift of designing romantic styles.
Yet it goes beyond the art of making clothes and into the realm of conception. Jeff’s energy is subtle, romantic and electric. I’m attracted to it like a moth to a flame. When we part ways, it’s as if I’ve just been spiritually fed, while he walks away ready to continue giving that “thing” we all wish we could have all the time. That “thing” is the spiritual love for God, life, our self and others.

We want to know
What’s your inspiration: The amazing people and places I visit on my travels and being in tune with nature and God
How did you go from Actor to designer: I was acting in Malibu for passion and to pay for the Pepperdine….booked some great SAG jobs working with William Morris and then was offered to work with Barry Manilow and Stiletto Entertainment who manages and produces many top artists…in that journey I discovered a new passion of design….so when my spirit said jump….I did and left my lovely entertainment career and moved in with family while beginning the challenging fashion vision of Prophetik.
What makes Prophetik different: Ethical social responsibility environmentally sustainable mix with great European fit and design….basically brining something positive that has substance to the often surface image driven market of fashion…and we are independent designer owned unlike most all designers
Must have: a great dinner jacket and hemp tie and of course riding boots
Don’t like: people being styled and not connecting with the soul in what they wear and the ego and all its drama
Fashion tip: Be yourself….experiment….don’t follow trends or friends… you will often hate those pictures looking back in 5 years from now….be free.
What do you do when not in your design studio: Ride my motorcycle in the country, ride horses, surf in Malibu…and best of all engage with my love…..my daughter….Isabella
What are your current hobbies: English saddle riding, yoga, surfing, fencing, poetry, and wine tasting at different vineyards in Europe and reading, trampoline with my daughter and motorcycle tours.

Thank you Jeff for spending time with Reflection Agency. Devotion and patience are two of your biggest virtues. You developed and maintain a style that is authentic and unique to you, not any trend. You are truly an inspiration to all of us for following your heart’s desires, persevering and taking jumps without fear.
Our body is a temple. We need to honor our health, body and put God and family in all we do above anything else.
