Darci Jacob is a staple of Sarasota’s event scene. Not only has she managed to pull together that perfect combination of high-style fashion housed inside a personal/picturesque boutique environment, but has also developed deep roots within our beautiful community through a dedicated following and continuous flow of charitable events.
With two decades at Cache and 30+ years in the fashion industry, Darci can’t remember a time when she wasn’t obsessed with dressing others. It has always been her goal to offer clothing that is impeccably designed, exceptionally made and wearable in multiple places. Quality, beauty and comfort have always been her key considerations.
Darci has always held the importance of serving others in high regard and doing so has become her life’s mission. Darci is currently the treasurer for the SPARCC (Safe Place & Rape Crisis Center) Auxiliary, a fundraising arm of the organization that meets regularly to plan fundraising events as well as raise awareness. She has been the fashion chair for the “SPARCCle on the Runway” event since 2017 which is one the organization’s largest events. She also assisted the fashion chair for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Darci also, since 2016, was the PTCC treasurer for Sarasota Military Academy and is currently on the board for Downtown Merchants Association. Last season, Darci did a total of 23 fashion shows, which was slightly lower than planned due to the novel coronavirus. Finally, Darci hosts “sip and shop”, donating a portion of proceeds back to the organization of choice.
For Darci and her downtown boutique, COVID-19 was a catalyst for building her social channels and to offer a shopping experience via social media. Faced with new challenges as a result of the pandemic, Darci believed that it was definitely a time to adapt and overcome. She believes that with the opening of her new shop “Darci”, she will be able to continue to serve the Sarasota area and its clientele, no matter the circumstances, as she’s done for the past 20 years.
