Jeffrey Monteiro:

Jeffrey Monteiro is inspired by the contrasts
of masculinity and femininity, structure
and drape and the use of nostalgic references in
modernized forms. This attitude can be seen in the
collection's mix of feminine draping,
classic tailoring and distinctive details.

Monteiro"s refined eclecticism can be
attributed to an international upbringing.
Born in the Middle East, raised in
Australia, and with early schooling in India.
Monteiro studied Fashion Design in Melbourne
before working as Design Assistant at Ellin
Ambe. After a stint in London working in
costume design, he launched his first eponymous
label, Jeffrey Monteiro, in Melbourne in 1996,
which was distributed throughout Australia.

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

The Jeffrey Monteiro collection was launched in 2008.

From 2009 to 2012 Jeffrey Monteiro was the Design Director at Bill Blass.
