Nebraska native JLynn Hausmann's clothing line JHaus is available on

The premium denim line, which is made up mostly of jeans, but also includes skirts, tops and one jacket, became available via the online retailer in late April.

Hausmann, a native of Butte, Neb., who now lives in Los Angeles, launched her denim line at Omaha Fashion Week last August. In October, she showed the collection again at Phoenix Fashion Week, and a few weeks later, she received a phone call from Zappos asking if they could sell her collection on the site.

So far, the pieces available on Zappos have sold well, and within two days of launching her line on Zappos, Hausmann sold of out of two items.

“It's a good problem to have,” Hausmann said. “We're preparing for more production.”

Prices range from $74 for a chiffon top to $165 for a pair of jeans or a blazer. All items are made in Los Angeles, and Hausmann said she designs many of her pieces when she's visiting family in Nebraska. The full collection is available at
