Creating cutting edge style comes as second nature to Jérôme Lamaar. The Bronx, New York native has lived, breathed and worked in fashion from a very young age. At the age of 15, Lamaar worked closely with Kimora Lee Simmons to build the fabulous empire of Baby Phat. Since then, the fashion prodigy turned fashion mogul has created their own lane as a fashion designer, stylist, creative director and overall visionary. Jerome’s work has been recognized and worn on the most mega celebrities including Beyoncé. This year, Lamaar launched collaborative collections with Macy’s under their brand 5:31, starred in Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2022 campaign and appeared as a judge on Fuse TV’s new fashion design competition, Upcycle Nation. Their style knows no bounds. —G.E.
