Jonathan Simkhai is a New York born and raised fashion designer. His love affair with fashion began at the early age of 14 when he started working in a clothing store assisting and honing his skills as a Buyer. He later went on to study at Parsons as well as FIT.
With the launch of the first women's wear collection under his name, Jonathan Simkhai presents his take on sophisticated dressing for the modern, cosmopolitan woman. As we see gender lines blurring within the realms of fashion and sexuality, Simkhai's collection indulges in this ambiguity. Charged by men's fashion mores and taking inspiration from the beautiful Italian and Japanese fabrics (cashmere, wool, cotton and silk) that he utilizes, Simkhai's collection brings forth classic codes translated into sexy and feminine silhouettes.
