As though it seems that Benjamin Jay was destined to design fantastic clothing, he didn’t exactly start there. “Going to school for Micro Molecular did not necessarily polish my deisng skills,” jokingly referring to his education. His attention to detail through school led him to become very focused on details at a fiber-sized level.
Benjamin creates his own fabrics for his high-end women’s contemporary label. He imports yarn and spins it through his own handloom, which creates his signature chain mail fabric. It’s almost guaranteed that one of the first things you’ll say when touching a Benjamin Jay garment is regarding the softness of fabric. Customers can find must-have basics from soft tees to tunics to dresses and more.
Creating a line of soft, basic pieces, Benjamin tapped into a successful business. Within its first year, Benjamin Jay was sold in over 45 stores like Urban Outfitters in the United States. Currently, over 150 stores carry the quickly growing company nationally and internationally. Benjamin Jay is also sold online through certain e-commerce sites.
“I never want to do what has already been done. Where’s the excitement? What inspires the wearer at that point?” says Benjamin of his fashion brand. In just three short years, Benjamin Jay has been featured in top fashion publications like Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Life & Style, Modern Luxury, Surface and many more. Celebrity enthusiasts of Benjamin Jay include Denise Richards, Gisele Bundchen, Kyle Richards, Taylor Swift and more.
