Jacqueline Quinn is one of Ireland’s most successful designers. Born and raised in Dublin, she graduated from the Grafton Academy of Design with a burning creative passion. Jacqueline is the creative director for the Levy Group and oversees the Betsey Johnson Collection and Avec Les Filles Collection. Jacqueline has also been the head designer for Guess and Jessica Simpson, owned by G-III. In 2016, when Morris Goldfarb, CEO of G-III acquired DKNY, he asked Jacqueline to become head designer of the dress division for the brand.
Jacqueline worked as both a designer and stylist for the 2012 and 2013 Grammy Awards. With the success of her work for the Grammy’s, Jacqueline was approached by New Balance to create a one of a kind couture dress made of New Balance sneakers to help raise awareness for Breast Cancer research. The dress, modeled by Olivia Culpo, opened New York Fashion Week and became one of New Balance’s most successful advertising campaigns to date. Jacqueline’s work has been worn by many celebrities, and in 2012 she was the recipient of the "Hollywood Best Evening Wear Designer Award”.
Jacqueline Quinn's collections are a true reflection of today's modern woman, while fusing high fashion with an edgy execution, making her creations highly sought after. Her current collections are sold in Bloomingdales, Macys, Nordstrom, and as current creative director for the Levy Group, is branching out into other European areas and brands.
Jacqueline has been designing a new private collection inspired by the death of her brother in law who died of mental illness. She has been working on this collection for over 3 years, and was influenced by 17th and 18th century religious paintings in both the National Gallery in Ireland and the Kimble Gallery in Texas. The first installation of this collection was shown in Dallas on March 5th, 2017 at the Fairmont Hotel. This was a charity event that helped raise awareness for mental health issues. The final installation of this collection will be shown later in 2019, to further promote awareness of mental health issues in both the youth and elderly of today. Her mission with this collection was to create a visual for the invisible. Fashion photographer Ezequiel De La Rosa, who has photographed for Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan, is currently working with Jacqueline to shoot the collection.
