MISSY ROBERTSON was busy long before the fame of A&E’s Duck Dynasty ever came knocking on her door. And as the wife of Jase Robertson — one of A&E Ducky Dynasty’s central figures — Missy’s days demanded an increasing number of public appearances. But despite the challenges of newfound fame, something beckoned Missy to fill what she recognized as a significant void in the fashion industry.

“I felt there was a void in the market for active, busy, working moms who want to look ‘put together’ without having to put a lot of effort into it, while staying modest and age-appropriate,” said Missy.

Southern Fashion House also produces the well-known clothing lines Judith March and Jacque+Janis, and operates numerous DejaVu boutiques, one of which is located along Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A in Seaside.
