About Justin Jamison
Born in San Diego, California, Justin found his passion for the arts at a young age. His influence stemmed from his grandmother, with whom he spent his childhood and early adolescence creating crafts and various works of art. At the age of 20, Justin moved to San Francisco, California, to further his knowledge of the arts and to pursue his dream of fashion design. A trip to Tokyo, Japan, gave Justin insight to a new and diverse world of fashion, which holds as a solid inspiration in his designs today. Justin graduated with honors from The Art Institute of California - San Francisco and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design with a focus in Menswear.
As a menswear designer, Justin takes a unique and edgy spin on modern day men’s wardrobe. He considers his design aesthetic as progressive urban-wear for men. His motivation comes from various cultures from around the globe, as well as architectural design. Not only does he admire leading designers Rick Owens and Boris Bidjan Saberi, but he also believes that they have paved the way for young designers to be bold, innovative, and original.
Justin’s work was featured in an editorial photo shoot in the July/August 2011 issue of Essential Homme Magazine. He was also nominated for Best Male Designer at the San Francisco Fashion Awards 2011. Justin also attended The Arts of Fashion Foundation’s Masterclass Workshop in Paris, France, where the final garments were displayed at Le Louvre Palais in July of 2011. Justin had the opportunity to work with a group of new and artistic designers creating innovative garments under the guidance of Matthew Ames, Matthieu Blazy, Julie Perrin, Jasper Sinchai Chadprajong-Smith, Lucile Puton, and Christine Phung. Most recently, Justin directed The Arts of Fashion Foundation’s 10th Annual International Student Competition “Tension”.
Justin continues to draw inspiration from the world around him to further share his vision through his designs.
