I remember Jérôme LaMaar Fortez from Kimora Lee Simmons’ TV show – Kimora: Life in the fab lane. The 15-year-old Jérôme started off interning with Baby Phat and became senior designer three years later. This talented young man then went on to become a trend forecaster and image consultant for various designers before setting up his own label 5:31 Jerome in 2013.
The label is named in honour of his birthday on May 31st and the look is polished, sexy and intellectual with a playful esoteric twist to simple garments. Have a look at some of his designs below and tell me what you think.
