Jonathan Simkhai is a New York based women’s wear designer. Since launching his eponymous label in 2010, he has designed unique pieces capturing a balance between masculine strength and feminine sensuality.

Jonathan’s love affair with fashion began at age 14 working as buyer and merchandiser at a local boutique. This experience provided an inside look at what women desire from a garment and formed the basis for his design perspective.

After gaining real world experience within the industry, Jonathan launched his brand with a clear focus on “his girl” – the modern cosmopolitan woman. With an eye for detail and rich fabrications, each season Jonathan elevates his take on sexy feminine silhouettes.

Jonathan Simkhai was a member of the CFDA {Fashion Incubator} inaugural class and in 2015, Simkhai showed his first runway collection and was inducted into the CFDA. In November 2015 Jonathan Simkhai was named a winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
