YOO INSPIRED BY
"Each place and project is very different and it’s important to respond to that"
Jade began her career as an artist in the late 1980’s. After studying painting in Florence she held numerous successful exhibitions of her works before her freewheeling entrepreneurial spirit led her to set up ‘Jade’, applying a colourful, relaxed aesthetic to one-of-a-kind jewellery pieces. Jade was appointed Fine Jeweller to Garrard in September 2000, seeing out a successful six year creative directorship. In 2005 Jade set her sights on interior design, joining residential design brand YOO, as Creative Director of Jade Jagger for YOO, to design chic apartments internationally with her design partner Thomas Bartlett. Not content with designing world famous interiors and jewellery, Jade expanded into fashion, designing couture and luxury pieces now sold alongside her jewellery at the first Jade Jagger Inc store in London. In 2009, while spending time at her second home in Ibiza Jade founded Jezebel: a street-chic music and clothing brand born as an antidote to the island’s mainstream sounds.
Now feted for both her laid-back lifestyle and her keen eye for design, Jade’s skill as an interior designer is in her determination to make stunning spaces with a comfortable functionality,earning acclaim in newspapers and magazines the world over.
