We’re thrilled to announce the ultra-chic Jay Godfrey as the 5th designer
in our 2013 runway line-up.
Jay Godfrey is a New-York Based Designer. He is inspired by the “chic New York woman”
and aims to meld the “classic tailoring techniques of Savile Row with modern silhouettes
and luxurious fabrics” that flatter the feminine figure. Godfrey’s dreams of becoming a
designer started at his first summer job at Hugo Boss. He studied finance at Montreal’s
McGill University with a concentration in business and accounting. After he graduated,
Godfrey worked for Citigroup on Wall Street and later attended Parsons School of
Design. An internship with Oscar de la Renta fine-tuned the young designer’s style and
technique, and helped him determine the ultimate Jay Godfrey woman.
The collection has been featured in major publications including, Women’s Wear Daily,
as Eva Longoria Parker, Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Mendes, Angie Harmon,
Eve, Leighton Meester, Petra Nemcova, Sarah Michelle Geller, Gabrielle Union, & Kate Walsh.
