Taking it back for a special #ThrowbackThursday to my interview with Jordan Saenz during this year’s February New York Fashion Week. It was a pleasure chit chatting with the young entrepreneur about her new collection. Here is part of the feature that was posted on Variety Latino.
On a chilly Monday night in New York, Brooklyn based designer Jordan Saenz, known as her newly created label Jordan Alexandra, launched her debut collection “Suit Up With Bras.”
The 26-year-old Mexican-American designer took part in New York Fashion Week on February 16 by presenting her 8-piece collection that has been in the works for some time. Bringing her own aesthetic as well as years of experience working for designers such as Zac Posen, Betsey Johnson and Oscar de la Renta the androgynous inspired collection is setting her apart in the fashion world.
“It’s actually been in the works for three years now, under development. I think I have just always known since I was young that I wanted to be a business owner,” Jordan told us at her NYFW showroom. “I’m inspired by a lot of tailored clothing and menswear and I really wanted to combine two things that are very basic and make it into something unconventional but still maintain that wearability.”
