Jerome LaMaar

Jérôme LaMaar at age 28 has been in the fashion industry for almost half of his life. He got his start at age 15 (yes 15!) as an intern for Kimora Lee Simmons’ Baby Phat women’s collection. Mr. LaMaar has launched his own label called “5:31 Jérôme.” Due to the immense knowledge he gained working for Ms. Simmons, LaMaar passed up the chance to attend Brown University and instead attended the Fashion Institute of Technology. When asked where his design inspiration comes from, Mr. LaMaar says “I lived in two worlds; the streets of the Bronx and the luxury of experiencing life in Paris and Tokyo as a consultant.”
