Wiederhoeft Fall/Winter 2020 Collection “The Music Box”
Represented by Allen Media Consulting.
The exquisite loneliness of childhood — the moments of being consumed by imagination, the birthplace of creativity. The origin of nostalgia and the romance of memory — fear of the dark and love of adventure…
What does the girl in the music box get up to when nobody’s looking? Does she ever tired of spinning to the same old song — or wearing the same old dress?

This collection marks Jackson Wiederhoeft’s first New York Fashion Week presentation, following his ballet-meetsfashion-show collection debut in October. He is a graduate of Parsons School of Design, where he won “Women’s Designer of the Year” in 2016 for this thesis collection, “The Dollies.” From there he went on to design for Thom Browne for three years, where his work focused on the women’s runway collections. These years provided an opportunity to hone his craft, gaining a complete understanding of the design and execution of couture-level garments. An obsession with theatre, dance, and the magic of live performance has always fueled Jackson’s work. Every look he designs comes along with its own character, each unique in this faerie tale-esque, overdrawn universe. For him this collection was not only a chance to bring this buffoonery to life, but a chance to spread joy and bamboozlement to a world in need of it.
