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 in 2010, 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 fabrics like cashmere, wool, cotton and silk that he utilises, Simkhai's collection brings forth classic codes translated into sexy and feminine silhouettes.
Jonathan Simkhai is a member of the CFDA Fashion Incubator program, the newest CFDA program supporting the next generation of fashion designers in New York City.
