As exotic and unconventional as Buenos Aires itself, Jessica Trosman’s designs are certain to catch the eye. The 39-year-old designer confesses she has neither an icon nor a muse in the fashion industry but instead draws her inspiration from the daily process of her work. A Trosman design begins with abstract shapes and volumes, which are later combined with simple silhouettes. Working with materials of natural origin—the rough hewn cottons and raw leather favored by many Argentine designers—Trosman also loves to print on and texturize her clothes, a legacy of her early years working with Argentina’s master fabric and fashion designer Martín Churba. Trosman may be South American to the core, but today her designs sell equally well at Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York.
