Palmer Jones  NY Fashion Week Fall 2004

Fashion Ledge - Palmer Jones
Kathryn and Lindy Jones are identical twin designers who have been based in New York for over 17 years. Educated at the London fashion school Kingston, they have worked for several major fashion houses including Ralph Lauren and Andrea Jovine. They came back together again to launch their own collection 4 years ago. Finalists in this year’s Fashion Group International Rising Star Award, they have also just won the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation Award. Palmer Jones was born out of a desire to create heirloom, dreamlike pieces. Combining their creativity and technical expertise they have created a line of exquisitely embroidered and tailored jackets. Sensually detailed these items are more than clothes, they are collectors pieces in limited editions.

Historical embroideries of the 18th century are brought to life. Hand carved abalone flowers are combined with crystals and beads from around the world. Each piece is uniquely cut and embellished to appeal to the eclectic, always evolving human spirit. Layered into this collection are urban, modern wovens and knits. Their love of luxurious fabrics from Italy and France meld their European flair and love of the past with the confidence of American sportswear.
