He’s been designing luxury menswear for years, and just launched a new custom line for women. Read on for details and where you can check it out in person.
When it comes to custom clothes, men always get the love. But Jonathan Mezibov is changing all that.
For years, Mezibov has specialized in custom tailored shirts for men, but he just announced a new line of made-to-order women’s designs.
That’s not the only thing he’s announcing. He has a new pop-up shop in OTR, and he’s hosting a Valentine’s Day themed open house event Friday, February 12. The event will take place from 6-9 p.m.
The event is free to attend, and guests will enjoy complimentary refreshments, a mini photo session with professional photographer, as well as a meet-and-greet with the designer. Attendees will also have a chance to give back to the community, as a portion of sales at the event with benefit UpSpring.
Mezibov, who specializes in fine tailored shirts for men, explains the excitement toward the spring season: “I love the bright, hopeful, and easy feeling that accompanies this time of year,” he says. “I am a big fan of color and the fresh palettes that come to the forefront in spring.”
Until now, Mezibov’s pieces have only been available for men, and sold only online. At the pop-up shop, not only will guests be able to purchase and be fitted in-person, but they will also get a sneak peek at his new designs for women. “We are really excited to now be offering made-to-measure shirts for women. They feature the same fine ingredients, craftsmanship and attention to detail as our men’s shirts, but [will be] totally customized to the individual’s specifications,” he says. “There is a certain freedom in making women’s shirts, in terms of colors, fabrics and styles…I am really enjoying the process and the ability to now offer shirts to anyone who enjoys our aesthetic.”
In addition to the stylish nature of the event, a portion of all sales will go to benefit UpSpring, formerly known as Faces without Places. UpSpring is the region’s only non-profit exclusively serving the educational needs of homeless children and youth. Mezibov is passionate about the organization, and says, “Childhood poverty is an unfortunate reality and Cincinnati is near the top of the list for highest child poverty rates among major U.S. cities. Poverty is a hindrance to many aspects of our society, but education certainly should not be one of them…[UpSpring’s] mission could not be more timely or important.”
Jonathan Mezibov’s pop-up shop event will take place at 1421 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45202 from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, February 12. To RSVP for the event, visit www.mezibov.eventbrite.com. To learn more about the designer, visit www.jonathanmezibov.com.
