Born in Nancy in 1974, he launched his debut womenswear collection, Couture à Porter, in 1998, when he was just 23 years old. Bold and elegant, with a quirky sense of humor, it placed the young Paris based designer firmly on the fashion map and prompted the press to pronounce him, “The enfant terrible of French fashion”. Jérôme won the prestigious Andam Award for Fashion in 1998, and designed the stage costumes for Michael Jackson’s last album one year later.
Jérôme’s debut accessories collection, Roots de Luxe, launched in 2002 to instant critical acclaim. Small yet perfectly formed, the understated yet elegant handbags immediately found a fan base amongst the stylish, young girls of Paris, and the Jérôme Dreyfuss brand was officially launched. Fast-forward eleven years and Jérôme Dreyfuss has cemented his reputation as the go-to designer for chic, understated accessories with innovative, heart-warming twists. His bags are designed to 'perfectly match’ your lifestyle and are instantly recognizable for their exquisite craftsmanship, generous volumes and clever design details.
Today Jérôme’s accessories are sold in over 300 outlets around the world, including Liberty, Harrods and Matches in London, Barneys and Fred Segal in New York and L.A, Maria Luisa in Shanghai, Isetan in Tokyo, and 3 monobrand stores in Paris.
