A favorite among the social set and celebrities, Jackie Rogers’ clientele include the First Lady of Malaysiz, New York State’s First Lady Michelle Paige Paterson, and Madame Amal Alankary. Broadway stars Patti LuPone and Christine Baranski, singer Roberta Flack and Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei.
For Fall 2010, Jackie Rogers was strongly influenced by Asian culture adding eastern elements such as asymmetric closures and mandarin collars. Richly appointed dimensional accents such as braiding, leather trim, floral rosettes, and contour quilting were the dominant adornment.
Ms. Rogers’ signature silhouette, the jumpsuit, is making a return in a number of fabrications. A sophisticated style, it flatters and enhances a woman’s curves.
“The jumpsuit has been a favorite style of many of my customers,” says Rogers. “It slims and elongates a woman’s proportions giving her a statuesque look.”
A staunch believer in natural fabrics, Jackie Rogers incorporates ultra-luxurious cashmeres, supple wool gabardines, flowing crepes, lavish velvets and sumptuous silk satins for Fall 2010. And that’s where it all begins.
A design comes alive at Jackie Rogers’ hand after a fabric is draped and molded to the desired shape. Each season has a point of view that emanates from the selected fabric. Clean, linear jackets and coats gently follow the female form, creating looks that are as comfortable in executive suites as they are at social luncheons.
Re-launching her menswear collection this season, Jackie Rogers’ ideal man is one who is passionate for refined taste, impeccable fit and expert tailoring.
The collection boasts sports suits, jackets, sexy trousers and shirts that reflect clean, elegant design. Created in only the finest natural fabrics, the designs are built on rich cashmeres, fine and textured woolens, and sumptuous, supple gabardines.
“I only design in the finest, most exclusive fabrics and it’s these fabrics that lead me to shaping the final garments,” says Rogers.
Jackie Rogers originals are available at her namesake high-end boutiques in the exclusive shopping districts of New York City and Palm Beach, Florida.
