About the Designer

Designer/Model/Actress Jenna Miller is a born and raised Southern Arizona cowgirl who has been influenced and fascinated by the rich southwest culture and Old West history that has surrounded her throughout her life.Jenna Miller Headshot in Color_sm

She comes from a long line of horsemen and ranchers so the love of that lifestyle flows deep in her blood. She has spent most of her life living and working on ranches and farms, all the while maintaining a passion for fashion design and a love for sewing.

As a young cowgirl she was professionally trained as a stunt rider and was also heavily involved in the rodeo circuit as a barrel racer. The tragic loss of her beloved barrel horse “Tonto” eventually lead her away from the rodeo world into other areas of professional horsemanship.

As an adult she became a Wild West style film & stage actress, singer, professional model and horse wrangler for film productions and she started designing and making her own 1880’s period costumes for the photo shoots, shows and film work she became involved with. This passion lead to her becoming a professional designer, costumer and seamstress for  multiple

Jenna also worked on the set of two of Country Music artist Randy Houser’s recent music videos “Like A Cowboy” and “We Went”; Jenna’s original trademarked clothing designs were worn by the lead actress Caitlin Leahy in both videos.. (See Jenna’s Costuming resume here for details: http://ravennaoldwest.com/about-the-designer/jennas-costuming-resume/  .)

Jenna has also worked as the personal tailor, costumer and stylist for multiple pro sports celebrities, famous music artists, well known comedians and film actors to include Michael Phelps, Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels, Kix Brooks, Paul Rodriguez and Michelle Dockery, to name a few. 

Jenna is currently part of a professional film industry costuming team under the talented costume designer, Paula Rogers   (http://paularogersdesigner.com).

In the midst of her film work, Jenna decided to start making her designs available to the general public and thus the retail company Ravenna Old & New West Vestures was formed.

Jenna’s costuming knowledge ranges over many style eras but, through inspiration from her Arizona roots, she mostly specializes in the fashions of the Old West and the very evolved Blowin Smoke Copyrightcurrent Western trends. 

Along the way she also gained inspiration from the Steampunk revolution and started  adding a line of Steampunk to her designs. Now her style encompasses the Old, the New and the Wild West. 

Today she continues to resurrect the intrigue of the Old West, bringing it into the modern Western designs she creates while staying true to the Jenna_Christmas Photoelement of elegance that also comprises who she is. In addition, as a fan of the sleekly tailored fashions of the 40’s and 50’s, she puts a lot of emphasis on ensuring that her designs complement and even glorify the elegance of the female form by proper tailoring

Jenna now resides in the famous historic town of Tombstone, Arizona where she and her husband, film actor Craig Hensley, live amongst the memories of the Old West legends that continue to inspire her Western fashions. When she is not designing, she rides horses, sings and continues to involve herself in Wild West shows, modeling and film work.  The West will always be her ultimate passion.
