About the designer
Shakuhachi evolved from fashion designer, Jessie White’s strong desire to create product that was instinctive and a reflection of her innate sense of style. Having eschewed formal fashion training, Jessie White’s career as a designer was born out of her instinct, necessity, and a strong desire to create. Recent Shakuhachi collections have seen the label mature, its primary focus being beautifully refined silk dresses, leather goods, clever detailing, tailoring, distinctive prints and accessories. Silhouettes are both functional and feminine, and the recognizable but evolutionary aesthetic of Shakuhachi is now stronger then ever.
