For the modern woman, Jonathan Simkhai’s ready-to-wear collection was luxurious. His aesthetic philosophy plays with the tension of masculine strength and feminine sensuality. In his show, you could see this reflected in the use of customized fabrics, romantic detailing, linear lines and contoured silhouettes. Through designs that seek to embolden women with confidence, ease and sensuality, the brand represents modern versatility. Simkhai continues to redefine the 21st century.
Born in New York, Simkhai launched his eponymous label after years of experience as a buyer and merchandiser. He honed his technical skills at Parsons School of Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Simkhai is constantly inspired by the environment. It motivates his creative process and desire to push conventional designs boundaries. His work often explores the confluence of technology and handmade artistry.
The Jonathan Simkhai collection is available globally, including at Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols and Net-a-Porter.
