• Jay Godfrey

    A job in fashion wholesale sparked Jay Godfrey’s interest in design—a passion he pursued at Parsons after studying finance at McGill University and working on Wall Street. While in the AAS Fashion Design program, Godfrey interned at Oscar de la Renta, where he applied the techniques he learned in Parsons’ studios and refined his vision.

    Soon after, Godfrey launched his own collection, featuring exquisite eveningwear that earned him a following among the fashion media and celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Leighton Meester, and Katherine Heigl. Godfrey credits Parsons with “allowing me to realize my vision with the exacting professional and artistic standards that Parsons is known for.” His line is sold in luxury department stores and online retailers worldwide, including Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Revolve Clothing, and at his flagship store in New York.
