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.
