A degree in finance isn’t exactly the kind of background you’d expect from an emerging fashion designer. But for Canadian-born Jay Godfrey, it was his knack for numbers and passion for architecture and interior design that prompted him to launch a namesake clothing collection. Now in its third season, Jay Godfrey’s cutting-edge day-to-night dresses have been flying off the racks at some of the hottest names in retail such as Intermix, Saks, Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus.
Known for his knockout one-shoulder shift dress, initially designed for leading Hollywood ladies like Rachel Bilson back in ‘05, Jay Godfrey is now the sought after contemporary evening label amongst global fashion insiders. Made for fearless fashionistas who aren’t afraid to flaunt their gams, Jay Godfrey’s knee-grazing silhouettes exude sex appeal and, dare I say, a dash of debauchery. Bring out your inner Bond girl with Godfrey’s sultry, yet wearable pieces that come in a combo of limited-edition, au courant hues such as fluorescent yellow and orange as well as the signature black.
Standouts include a stunning one-shoulder red ombré dress (degradé is a huge trend this Spring), a neon yellow shift with an over-sized bow (pictured above), a chic Kimono-style tunic with a waist-cinching sash, a rose-gold metallic halter swing ensemble, a racer back zipper silk jersey dress and a striking silk apple-green gown (exclusive to Neiman Marcus). Other trademark features include assymetrical zippers, racy back cut outs and hidden pockets, which are perfect for stowing your lipstick, credit card, handcuffs and other secret agent essentials.
