A Feel For Fashion : Jordan Roth
On Monday morning, Jordan Roth was taking in the Schiaparelli show from the front row. By the afternoon, he was among the models in Thom Browne’s first haute couture show, embodying a pigeon dressed in a fantastical ensemble of the designer’s grey suiting. Roth bridges the worlds of theatre and fashion with incomparable aplomb. Based in New York, he is a seven-time Tony-Award winning producer who is recognised as a theatrical innovator, style influencer, and talented creator who exudes mild-mannered panache. As President of Jujamcyn Theaters, he oversees five Broadway theatres, presenting some of the most influential and successful shows on Broadway including the recent revival of Into the Woods, as well as the Tony Award-winning Hadestown, Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Springsteen on Broadway, Kinky Boots and The Book of Mormon. And he brings a theatricality to his love of fashion as a model, muse and connoisseur. His red carpet appearances – particularly when attending the Met Gala in Haute Couture – are among the most intrepid yet always well-considered. He is a regular on best-dressed lists from Vogue, V, WWD, GQ, and more. Roth is also committed to supporting and uplifting the LBTGQ community and was recognised, along with his husband, Richie Jackson, with a Trevor Project Hero Award in 2016.
