JONATHAN MARC STEIN
Runway|Spring 2020
Tell us about your line.

My predominant style of the JONATHAN MARC STEIN brand is edgy, integrated with elegance. I accomplish this by incorporating mixed-media in many designs including silk, leather, studding, metallics, etc.

My design philosophy is that women and men of every shape and size should have access to clothing that makes them feel great about themselves.

How did you first get started as a Fashion Designer at such an early age?

I took the first steps towards making my dream a reality while attending university and working on my Mechanical Engineering degree. It was then that I saw my first runway video on YouTube. It ignited something in me, and, instantaneously, I knew this was what I wanted to do with my life. Soon after I received my degree, I set out to create a brand that would one day attain international recognition: JONATHAN MARC STEIN.

I am a self-taught designer who also trained myself to sew. I transitioned to full-time designing beginning January 2018, including sewing/tailoring all garments created for the JONATHAN MARC STEIN brand.

What designers have influenced you?

Several designers come to mind that influence me as a fashion designer.

Alexander McQueen made a name for himself at a young age for his precise/quality tailoring, mixing leather with more feminine fabrics and combining traditional and edgy styles. I aspire to do the same.

The Receipt Keeper D'Angelo Wallace always knows how to cut through the chaos.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW what’s going on with YouTubers or anybody else with a modicum of influence online, you’ve got two options. You can watch their videos and scour Instagram—or you can get thee to a YouTube drama channel. And no one does a channel quite like D’Angelo Wallace. The Texas-based 22-year-old packs his superlong explainer videos (many of them run over an hour) with timelines, charts, and commentary—a hybrid model that perfectly encapsulates the messiness of the influencers he covers. He now has more than 2.18 million subscribers. “I will say it’s not necessarily a case of me always striving to have the best research, or I’m always going to be 100 percent correct,” Wallace said. “I just am obsessed with the storytelling of it all.”
