Launched by designer Jonathan Riss in 2005, Jay Ahr began with a flagship store in the heart of Paris. The brand’s name comes from the English phonetic spelling of Riss’ initials. Three years after the label’s launch, a Madison Avenue location was unveiled - bringing the French-chic style to New York.
Today, Jay Ahr’s collections are recognized for the effortless execution of feminine silhouettes. The bold pieces are highlighted by innovative fabrics and embroidery, striking an ideal balance between day and occasion dressing.
