Korean-born designer Jackie JS Lee came to London in 2007 to study pattern cutting at Central Saint Martins. By 2010 she had completed her MA there and launched her eponymous brand ‘J. JS LEE’. Beloved for androgynous tailoring and exquisite fabrics, the label’s aesthetic is sleek and modern.
Jackie’s MA collection won the prestigious Harrods Award. ‘J. JS LEE’ has since captured the attention of leading Korean conglomerate Samsung, who awarded Jackie the ‘Samsung Fashion and Design Fund’ which provides her with valuable financial support. ‘J. JS LEE’ also receives NEWGEN support to showcase at London Fashion Week.
The brand enjoys press attention from the likes of Vogue US, Vogue UK, The Times and Dazed & Confused. ‘J. JS LEE’ is by stocked by London’s exclusive Dover St Market, The Corner and Hong Kong’s I.T., to name a few.
‘J. JS LEE’ has been supported by our New Fashion Venture programme since February 2011.
