Jeffrey Monteiro is inspired by the contrasts
between masculinity and femininity, structure
and drape, taking nostalgic references and
modernizing them for the sophisticated needs
of today. This attitude can be seen in the
collection’s mix of feminine draping, tailoring
and distinctive details.
Monteiro’s refined eclecticism can be
attributed to his international upbringing.
Born in the Middle East, raised in Australia, Monteiro studied Fashion Design in Melbourne.
In 2001, Monteiro came to New York to work at
Mayle, leaving in 2005 as Design Director to
take a position with the same title for the
Derek Lam signature collection and Tod’s RTW
collections. The Jeffrey Monteiro signature
collection was launched in New York for Fall 2008.
Jeffrey Monteiro was the Design Director at Bill Blass
from October 2009 until August 2012.
