Lorain designer Jevon Terance makes his mark during New York Fashion Week – Morning Journal

International fashion designer and owner of Jevon Terance Fashion Line is a lifelong resident of Lorain.

Founded in 2007 by its namesake, Jevon Terance Fashion Line quickly grew from a passionate hobby into a recognizable brand.

Terance has participated in seven fashion shows over four seasons at New York Fashion Week, as well as showcasing his designs at Paris Fashion Week in 2015.

For the first time since the novel coronavirus pandemic, Terance returns to New York City to showcase his collections.

The collection will be presented during the Confessional Show Room and SFW Fashion Shows.

SFWRUNWAY showcases exclusive, luxury streetwear brands during New York Fashion Week.

Terance is a client of The Confessional Showroom NYC, one of the most recognized showrooms in New York City known among fashion editors, stylists and social media influencers as the place to discover new, fashion-forward designers in New York and Miami.

He said he is very excited to be back in New York.

“I had to curate two different looks,” Terance said. “The Show Room is more glitz and glam, while streetwear is mixed with mediums of sneakers and relaxed pieces without dumbing down the collection.”

Terance said the collection is very special as it celebrates the brand’s 15th anniversary.

The 15-year collection is based on the X15 hypersonic aircraft, the first experimental aircraft to reach the edge of space.

“As we enter 15 years, we want to take the brand to new heights, which is what the X-plane, the X15 did,” said Terance. “This 15-year collection will do just that by providing a new color palette and mixing textiles; which pushes forward into the future of Jevon Terance.

“I’m excited to celebrate 15 years with collaborators across the country and in NYC.”

Terance said as the brand expands, his company is working more with small manufacturing companies.

“It can feel weird to design something and not be the one making it,” he said. “But it’s amazing to receive the product and it’s perfect.

“As we grow, I can’t be the one sitting there sewing everything, so trust is a big thing. We work with small businesses so we can work efficiently, and it fits well.”

Terance said that while he enjoys traveling, home is where his heart is.

“Family comes first, and that’s a big part of being stationed here,” he said. “I love my community, participating in local organizations and being a mentor; social media plays a big role in not having to move.”

He said he and his business and supporters hope to host a locally based fashion show in the near future.

“I like to take the energy of New York Fashion Week and bring it back here in a private setting,” said Terance. “Ideally, we’d like to do it before it gets too cold.”
