Who is Jessica Walsh?

Do you know that feeling when you hear a name all the time, but you don’t know what it’s about? You just hear that name over and over again and you are eager to find out. Who is Jessica Walsh?  I had sleepless nights and after days of searching and researching I finally got the answer (thank you Fucking Young!):

Te 24 year old British born menswear designer Jessica Walsh graduated with her BA from the University of Westminster in London before progressing straight to the MFA program at Parsons. During the 4 year program at Westminster she studied both mens and womenswear design and she did internships in the fashion capitols London, New York and Amsterdam.

Fucking Young says about her collection:
Her Spring/Summer 2015 collection represents a feeling that she want to evoke, and the relationships of groups of friends – in particular boys. “There’s almost a sense of conjecture when anyone looks at a group of boys and the roles they each play to one another, this is something that has fascinated me for a while. So from this idea and wanting to identify the research just developed really quickly. This idea of bruising the fabric to create an intimate touch. The series of photographs of slants of the body that are printed on the jersey t-shirts. The interviews that created the huge geometric patterns that are again translated into jackets. I think these are just some of the ideas that I played with as there was so much research developed, but these strongly represent a sense of colour and volume that are important to the menswear that I want to produce.”
