‘ESPION’ French for the English word ‘spy’
Deidre Jefferies defines her design aesthetic as “the future of classic clothing”. The ESPION collection has unexpected combinations of male and female elements. She finds the beauty in all things masculine and strength in all things feminine. The label is opulent and sophisticated, dark and beautiful. Fur, lambskin, rich double-faced cashmere, and fluid silks are woven into the designer’s laser sharp palette. The designer’s work is intensely focused on luxury. Her exacting expectations and commitment to excellence is apparent in everything she does. The heirloom quality clothing provides glimpses of every screen goddess, heiress, bond girl, every rock star and the everyday superwoman.
Deidre Jefferies has earned a reputation as a lifestyle tastemaker. Early in her career, her collection was quickly snatched up by fashion stylists for Alicia Keys, Norah Jones, Angelina Jolie and Jada Pinkett-Smith and featured in television campaigns, local and national publications including the cover of Honey Magazine with Alicia Keys and the cover of Pose Magazine including a four-page editorial inside. ESPION debuted its Fall/Winter 2011 collection in New York during Fashion Week. The electrifying visual received a standing ovation at the emerging designers showcase and subsequently received glowing reviews in various fashion blogs and online magazines.
In the time since the debut of ESPION, Deidre’s collection has been featured in an 11 page editorial spread inside Worn Magazine and also featured on NBC’s “The Feast”. She was interviewed by the CW Network and was profiled in the November 2011 and Jan/Feb 2012 issues of DC Modern Luxury magazine. The multi-faceted designer provided wardrobe for the feature film titled “Learning Uncle Vincent (L.U.V.)” at the prestigious 2012 Sundance Film Festival starring actors Common, Danny Glover, Meagan Good, Dennis Haysbert and Charles Dutton. Most recently, Deidre was named one of Ebony Magazine’s “Top 12 Designers of 2012 to Watch”. She has partnered with Rolls Royce for her official ESPION launch in February 2012. The Moet & Hennessy division of the famed luxury goods empire, LVMH sponsored a press only showing of Ms. Jefferies’ RESORT2012 collection.
