about Asher Jay

Asher Jay is a designer, artist, writer and activist. She was educated at Parsons the New School of Design, in New York where she received a BFA in Fashion Design and an AAS in Fashion Marketing. Shortly after graduating, she pursued a career working for various fashion houses in New York, which furnished her with the necessary experience to create her eponymous, exclusive, PrĂȘt-a-Porter label. During her career she became passionate about textiles, printmaking and pattern design, fascinations that are frequently referenced in her fashion line and artworks.

A staunch supporter of animal rights, wildlife conservation and sustainable development, she found herself using her fashion, art and writing to raise awareness. Over the years she has produced several graphic campaigns, written many narratives, and pieced together numerous collections and canvases to eloquently elucidate the serious issues currently assailing our fragile planet.

Through her extensive travels across the globe, and her studies in art history, she has developed an aesthetic sensibility that is an amalgam of contrasting cultural influences. All her work is anchored by the deep commitment she harbors toward the realization of a collective future.
