Founder, designer and creative director, Theophilio

Why we’re fascinated: Because Thompson is unapologetically himself in every precious piece of clothing he crafts. The 2021 Council of Fashion Designers of America emerging designer of the year, Thompson creates apparel that embodies his Jamaican pride and culture and the experiences that come with his Jamaica-to-New York love story. Every time you see a Theophilio design on the runway — or, say, on Keke Palmer on the cover of Vogue UK — you can’t help but to feel a part of that journey yourself.
