Born in 1990 in New York and raised in Rome, Jezabelle Cormio is a women’s fashion designer who graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Fashion Design from the prestigious Royal Academy of Antwerp in 2013. In 2013 she was selected by Ann Demeulemeester to represent emerging Belgian talent in an exhibition, entitled Fashion@EgmontPalais, curated by herself in honor of the incoronation of HRM Mathilde Queen of Belgium, to whom it was presented. Her first men’s wear collection after graduation was bought by Opening Ceremony and distributed globally, in their stores in Los Angeles, New York, and London. After a short period as assistant designer in the house of Paco Rabanne, in the summer of 2015 she began the preparatory work that lead to the launch of CORMIO in 2016: a line of luxury contemporary evening-wear that is currently being distributed by Opening Ceremony stores exclusively. She lives and works in Bassano del Grappa, in Veneto, where she develops and follows the production of her collections, as well as draw new links between her emerging brand and the established industry expertise of the region.
