NEW AMERICAN ELEGANCE
WES GORDON THE BRAND Wes Gordon seeks to refine American elegance for a new generation by blending a fresh youthful perspective with an appreciation for the essence of haute couture. The brands driving philosophy is the belief that modernity, timeless sophistication and edge can be captured simultaneously within a collection. In the established and competitive landscape of luxury fashion, the Wes Gordon Collection provides an opportunity to discover a new and unique aesthetic.
WES GORDON THE DESIGNER Raised in Atlanta, Gordon grew up surrounded by the grace and romance of the South. Enamored with high fashion from an early age, Gordon developed a keen interest in the way people express themselves through clothing. Set on the idea of taking part in the transformative power of fashion, Gordon enrolled in the famously competitive Central Saint Martins University of Art and Design in London. Between school semesters, Gordon honed his skills by interning with two industry icons - Oscar de la Renta and Tom Ford. Upon graduation in 2009, Gordon launched his eponymous line of womenswear and presented his first collection in February at the Fall/Winter 2010 New York Fashion Week. Wes Gordon has appeared in major national/international publications and has developed a celebrity following. Press and retailers alike praise Gordon for his combination of classic techniques and modern designs. Additional accolades include the 2012 FGI Rising Star Award, 2012 finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, 2013 Forbes Magazine â€œ30 under 30â€? and 2-time recipient of the coveted Swarovski Collective sponsorship (Spring 2013 and Spring 2014).
