I meet Sylvie de Gil in her new showroom in the Cooper Building in between a few Skype calls with clients. This woman is enthralled with her work amidst a whirlwind of activities. Born in Paris in an artistic family, Sylvie de Gil is a Parisian designer who lives in Los Angeles. She has a strong family background in fashion and grew up immersed in an artistic environment. Her mother and aunt both worked with Christian Dior and Thierry Mugler and her father was a classical pianist. She embraced a diplomatic lifestyle and traveled the world with her husband always keeping herself very active and involved in her community by creating various Associations. Her world travels have opened her eyes and mind. On a more personal note, Sylvie is trilingual, an avid reader and enjoys technology and wide-open spaces. She has lived all around the world in Europe, Canada, and Australia and has made several cross-country trips across the USA, the Grand Canyon, Nevada , Arizona, Texas and Australia. Sylvie would like to develop her business in Latin America & Spain!
After many years in the fashion industry as a designer herself, she created a recycled fur line in Canada which lead to the creation of very unique clothes. Sylvie ventured out and became inspired by nature creating “Purple Turtle Poncho”, a trendy clothing line for babies. She went on to create a luxurious collection of silk personalized scarf called “The Jomsy Scarf” and other collections with surprises in the works, as we speak. It is her love for the world of fashion and designers that led her to openJomsy Consulting, the perfect vehicle to express her creative vision and passion helping young designers reach their goals and make their dreams come true! Jomsy Office is located in prestigious Beverly Hills with a showroom in the Cooper Building Design Center right in the pulsating fashion heart of L.A. Fashion District.
“I am a visionary because I have an inner sense of fashion that is avant-garde and futuristic, I enjoy inventing and creating new products and pioneering creative work methods in the fashion industry.”
Sylvie has personally coached many designers from all over the world and enjoys accompanying all her designers from start to finish in the process of creating luxurious fashion clothing lines and helping them market their new product. She has helped launch the careers of many designers: Caroline Monick, Edita Collection who recently graced the Ethos Project runway during LA Fashion Week, Jinny Jean Active Wear and several upcoming designers such as Virginie Villette, Candid Goddess.
