Jeffrey is a professional Toronto based designer, couturier and pattern maker. He has been in the Canadian fashion industry for over 25 years and has worked with many of Canada’s top designers. He has developed countless numbers of collections, over a thousand bridal gowns alone, all shown to buyers and press from around the world at NYC Bridal Weeks. His designs have been featured in ad campaigns, fashion editorials, magazine covers, and include a gown featured on the cover of ‘the knot’.
Working alongside internationally renowned designers throughout his career has afforded Jeffrey the opportunity to develop and refine his knowledge, skills and aesthetic to an uncompromisingly high level. Professionally his reputation is built on his expertise with impeccable fit and tailoring, couture fabrics and finishes, as well as his attention to detail in both the design and construction of beautiful gowns. After decades of creating collection after collection for companies and retail stores, he finds it so much more rewarding working directly with brides.Jeffrey James
