Palmer Jones - 2003
New York-based identical twins Kathryn and Lindy Jones are the designers behind luxury label Palmer Jones. After studying fashion at London's Kingston University, the sisters worked separately for several major fashion houses, including Ralph Lauren and Andrea Jovine. In 2000, they joined forces to launch their own collection, born out of a collaborative desire to create heirloom pieces.
A shared love of luxurious woven fabrics from Italy and France informs Palmer Jones' designs, melding a European flair with the confidence of American sportswear. Combining the designers' creativity and technical expertise, Palmer Jones has earned acclaim for its exquisitely embroidered and tailored jackets. Following their Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation win, the designers received the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for Women's Design in 2005.
