Over 300 guests were on hand to celebrate the opening of the JAKE
Flagship Atelier + Showroom on March 3. Founded by Jake Wall and Nathan Johnson in San Francisco in 2012, JAKE is an upstart premium fashion brand that offers clothes that are classic – yet modern – with a defiant twist.
The grand opening event coincided with the announcement that JAKE will partner with Wall’s fellow Project Runway Cast Member, Blake Patterson, to create JAKE + Blake.

The collaboration will focus on cocktail dressing and chic womenswear looks. Wall and Patterson formed a connection while on Project Runway. Creative directors of their own brands, JAKE and Blake Morris Collection, respectively, the pair have been informally working together since leaving the show.
This announcement came days before the grand opening of the new JAKE Flagship Atelier + Showroom. The space has been designed by the JAKE team to create a snapshot of the life fully lived – a life by JAKE. A custom wine bar, exclusive jewelry offerings from CAKE curated by JAKE, and vintage collector timepieces curated exclusively for JAKE in collaboration with ICON Timepieces are among the features included to fulfill Wall’s vision. Now open, the flagship will function as a showroom, design studio, event space, and store – including full tailored clothing offerings.
