The pure embodiment of modern elegance- this MBFWA saw the show-stopping debut of our exclusive 16-piece collection designed in collaboration with Brand Ambassador, Jessica Gomes.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR COLLABORATION WITH JETS! WHAT WAS YOUR STARTING POINT FOR THE COLLECTION?
Thank you! I wanted to create a line that was simple and sophisticated. I’m always travelling so I wanted the range
to reflect my jet-set lifestyle.
WHAT SORT OF WOMAN DID YOU HAVE IN MIND WHEN DESIGNING?
The modern woman who is short on time and just wants something that makes her look refined and feel her best.
WHAT WAS THE MOST SURPRISING THING THAT DESIGNING THE COLLECTION TAUGHT YOU?
How complicated we can make things! I think simplicity is key and I really wanted to bring back sleek styling.
THAT DIRECTION IS EVIDENT IN THE COLOUR PALETTE YOU CHOSE...
That’s my aesthetic. I love black & champagne, they’re two classic colours that never date and suit all complexions.
HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A SWIMSUIT MODEL INFORMED YOUR DESIGNS?
Yes of course. Having tried on countless swimsuits on over the years I have really educated myself on
what looks amazing and what fabrics feel good.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE FROM THE NEW COLLECTION?
My favourite piece is definitely the keyhole one piece. It has a classic 80's Elle Macpherson vibe.
ARE YOU USUALLY A ONE PIECE WOMAN?
I love a one piece for runway and resort, but I also love a bikini for beach holidays to help with my tan!
