Japanese Weekend's owner Barbie White started off as a dancer and choreographer before she switched her career and became a maternity designer. The name Japanese Weekend came from a dance move that she choreographed in the mid 70's.
Over the years, JW has become one of the leading maternity designers in the US. It offers contemporary, functional and comfortable clothing, made with quality fabrics and solid construction. The company has patented several designs that are innovative and fashionable, which include the Ok Support Waistband, The Hug Line, and the one-of-a kind MamaCoat.
