Jasper Conran, OBE, is a British designer. Having trained at Parson’s School of Design in New York, he produced his first womenswear collection at the age of 19 and was subsequently awarded Designer of the Year. Celebrating over 30 years of the brand, he has since diversified from womenswear into menswear, fragrance, home, crystal, tableware and a diffusion clothing and accessories line. Continuing to expand his role in the world of design, he was recently appointed Chairman of Conran Holdings, a business with architecture, design, retail and licencing arms.
Jasper Conran was one of the first designers to collaborate on a high street collection with the launch of his diffusion womenswear line J by Jasper Conran - part of the Designers at Debenhams portfolio since 1996. This collection has enabled a wider audience to buy into the distinctive Jasper Conran style with its contemporary, timeless aesthetic, premium feel and attention to quality and detail. His work in Womenswear was subsequently followed by Childrenswear, J Home and Menswear.
