Kim Jones is a British fashion designer and is the artistic director of Dior Men since 2018. In 2002 Jones obtained his MA in menswear fashion from Central Saint Martins. His career took off when John Galliano bought half his graduate collection. The next year, Jones launched his eponymous label. Since then Jones has worked for several fashion brands including Dunhill, Hugo Boss, Mulberry, Alexander McQueen and Louis Vuitton.
During his tenure at Louis Vuitton, Jones revolutionised the definition of high-end menswear. Jones injected the brand's refined luxury aesthetic with a street-wear sensibility bringing the historic brand into the 21st century with his innovative and modern take on menswear. In 2017, Jones launched the critically acclaimed collaboration with cult skate brand, Supreme. The collection was so popular that certain pieces from it became collectors items before they had even dropped in stores.
Jones has also worked as a stylist and an art director for a host of magazines including Dazed & Confused, Pop, Fantastic Man and T: The New York Times Style Magazine.
In 2018, Jones received the inaugural Trailblazer Award from the British Fashion Council. Jones also won the British Fashion Council’s Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2009 and again in 2011. He is a two-time recipient of the Topshop New Generation award.
Jones launched the first Menswear Cruise show for Dior in 2019 in Tokyo. He has been credited with igniting a new generation's interest in menswear.
