I first came into contact with French-born designer Jessica Choay when she found me after I’d post this photo from Paris–as it turned out she’d made the dress. Now based in London, Jessica Choay is the real deal. Exuding sensuality, her collection can best be described as simply sexy; the dresses and lingerie pieces are both designed to be slipped into (and out of) with the appearance of relative ease, and is aesthetically something you want to touch.
Though we had corresponded a little bit before meeting, Choay exceeded my expectations with how personable and friendly she was, two things that don’t exactly spring to the front of my mind when I think of burgeoning artists. She was also incredibly resilient, agreeing to be photographed in -4C/24F degree temperatures.
