Simon Porte Jacquemus is the entrepreneur behind his eponymous fashion brand from the South of France: Jacquemus.
His mother was his first model, and she continues to be his most important inspiration.
He mastered his expertise at Comme des Garçons
“I’ve never been to fashion school, but I worked at the Comme des Garçons store in Paris to finance my brand, and I feel it was my school,” Jacquemus
His iconic aesthetic was born of necessity, rather than a planned concept
“I didn’t have much money, but I knew I had to make the best that was possible with what I had.”
On the internet, he met some of his closest friends and collaborators as an entrepreneur.
“I would like more poetry, less industry; because fashion is nothing without poetry.”
