canalJonathan 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. 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.

Inspired by the iconic glass ceilings of the Grand Palais and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Simkhai filled his gowns with transparencies, gilded details and fantastical elements. A red corded lace appliqué look featured flared sleeves and a magistral trumpet skirt. Another standout was an ivory long sleeve gown with lace bodice, and a shredded chiffon and ostrich feather skirt.
