Jonathan Simkhai is a New York-based women’s ready-to-wear designer. Since launching his eponymous label in 2010, Simkhai’s unique pieces have captured a balance between masculine strength and feminine sensuality and have resonated with the modern cosmopolitan woman. Jonathan’s introduction to the fashion world, as a buyer and merchandiser in New York, provided him with an inside look at what a woman truly desires from her garments and formed the basis for his design perspective. After gaining real-world experience within the industry, he launched his brand with a clear focus and an eye for detail and rich fabrications. In 2012, Jonathan Simkhai was chosen to participate in the CFDA {FASHION INCUBATOR} program, supporting the next generation of fashion designers in New York City. He was a nominee for the 2014 International Woolmark Prize and was inducted as a member of the CFDA the same year. In November 2015, Jonathan Simkhai was named a winner of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund.
