“I enjoy being able to tell a memoir with the pieces of clothing I wear and design. This is my take on fashion!” -Colin J
CMJ DESIGNSxSTYLES is the go-to fashion line of 2017. The emerging designer, Colin Jones, fuses natural tones and broad textures together perfectly. Taking from various aesthetics, Jones creates a dimensional story with each garment. — European fashion meets “everyday runway”.
Coming of age, Colin Jones, knew where his passion would take him. By the age of 11, he began attending fashion shows with his older sister, J. Buck. Also a designer at the time, she introduced Colin to different styles, cultures, and quality. By watching each collection, he dissected the artist’s body of work. From these experiences, Jones knew that he dreamed to use his own creativity and be a designer.
Coining the name of the fashion line CMJ DesignsXStyles, the inspiration for the upcoming SS17 collection will be a mixture of neutral hues, simple patterns, and a widespread of textures. The designer obtains motivation for each season by traveling the world and mastering ideas from various backgrounds and cultures. Jones debuted his first collection at Suite7Stl Fashion Show in December 2016.
More projects from the designer will be coming In 2017. Colin J’s next show will be his very own viewing party and fashion show, which will be in held late February. The official website drops Jan.18th. There you can view and purchase his custom designs.
When asked about a 5 year goal, Jones replied, “a 5 year goal for me is to grow and learn the industry more. I want my foot in the doors of major fashion cities such as PARIS & NYC, as well as still developing my brand. I plan on attending several fashion events here, in St. Louis, where I stared! STL is emerging into something fashion forward and creative, and I can’t wait to be apart of it!”
