CULT de JOUR is a modern luxury brand founded in 2016 by fashion designer, stylist, philanthropist and entrepreneur Tameka Foster-Raymond. The brand is inspired by her work with top musical artist The Fugees ala' Lauryn Hill from 1996—the “Miseducation era” of the late-nineties. Tameka fell in love with vintage military and leather staple pieces.
Our jackets are made of rare vintage or discontinued military pieces, most of which are no longer manufactured in the United States. They are hand-picked and carefully designed. Each jacket is made-to-order after clients consult with Tameka. The CULT de JOUR lifestyle brand exists through a collaboration of talented artists and musicians carried through Tameka's deep connection with the industry.
CULT de JOUR's quality and mark are second-to-none, served by a unique vision that separates its customers from the rest.
Tameka personally curates through 30 embellishments. No two jackets are alike! You can also send Tameka a brief description of what you like, and she'll take care of things from there.
A percentage of CULT de JOUR proceeds goes to select veterans organizations such as Black Veterans of America, Iraq Veterans Against the War and Veterans for Peace.
Tameka is one of those impeccably polished women whose closet you want to raid and whose sense of style you want to imitate! She can easily make a white t-shirt look as fabulous with a couture ball skirt as with a pair of jeans. No stranger to the worlds of music, entertainment and fashion, Tameka Foster-Raymond is a household name in styling and known for being a “purveyor of all things fresh.”
Tameka’s fashion philosophy—mixing timeless pieces with street-smart sensibility—reflects her impressive roster of clientele. She has lent her creative talents and keen eye for style and aesthetics to everyone from legendary soul singers like Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin to current chart-toppers such as Jay-Z, Toni Braxton, Usher, Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige, Chris Tucker, Ciara, Keri Hilson, Maxwell, The Fugees, Nas, T.I., Omarion, Ginuwine, LeToya Luckett, Musiq Soulchild, Janelle Monaé, Dr. Dre and many more.
Showcased in fashion publications from Harper's Bazaar to In-Style Magazine, Tameka received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Art Institute of Atlanta in November 2010 in recognition of her extensive work in fashion.
In addition to her lifestyle work, Tameka is an avid philanthropist and volunteer, including with programs such as Kile's World Foundation, Oakland Natives Give Back and The Lost Ones Foundation.
