“It’s not about fitting into a box, it’s being very authentic to who I am. I shift directions now and then and really immerse myself in my interests,” she explains. Hence the term digital creative. “And I think film is a really beautiful intersection of all the loves of my life.” Now that she possesses an underlying foundation through her photography, she will be pursuing film heavily in the coming year. If there’s anything one should be influenced by, it’s the determination Jones has shown in carving her own path. From modest, small-town roots to becoming one of the social media’s most compelling voices, Jones is changing the way we think of influencers, of fashion, of photographers, and of filmmakers, and she’s showing other women how they, too, can use their own voices to shout to the top.
Combining a deep appreciation and understanding of the global fashion industry with an incredible eye for detail, Kim Jones is a powerful voice for the multi-faceted creatives. The Australian/British/Filipino’s reputation as one of the most influential fashion voices in creative media has been embraced with a series of partnerships that include directing, photography, styling, modelling and writing. Tailored to a global audience, her work and achievements have been recognised with a series of magazine covers, features and awards. To date, she counts IWC Schaffhausen, Louis Vuitton, Net-A-Porter, Farfetch and Calvin Klein as clients; her work and style being featured in the likes of WWD, Vogue Paris, L’Officiel, New York Times’ T Magazine, New York Times, Fashionista and Harper’s Bazaar. Dedicated to cultivating a creative community of independent and emerging talent, Jones launched The Fore, a retail platform harnessing the power of collaboration to disrupt the retail industry and celebrate the limitless creative freedom present through the merging of minds and aesthetics.
