Head of Design, R.M. Williams
Born into a family of migrant European tailors, dressmakers and milliners, Jeremy Hershan grew up passionate about all aspects of dress and clothing from an early age. He is currently the Head of Design at R.M. Williams, where he oversees the entire collection, from footwear to apparel.
Jeremy graduated from RMIT University in Melbourne with First Class Honours in Fashion Design - during which he spent 6 months in Antwerp with the highly innovative Veronique Branquinho. He moved to Paris to complete an apprenticeship with Kris Van Assche, Artistic Director of Dior Homme.
After a year honing his eye for both fine tailoring and also the nuances of runway clothing for men and women, Jeremy accepted a position at the crucible of modern menswear, No.1 Savile Row, where he worked alongside the world’s finest tailors and craftsmen, designing the ready-to-wear tailoring and accessories for Gieves & Hawkes.
Most recently, Jeremy spent four years as Senior Designer at the venerable Alfred Dunhill, rebuilding the formalwear offer of the luxury maison from the ground up. During his tenure, Jeremy created a uniquely British and immediately identifiable aesthetic, which put Dunhill’s tailoring firmly on the map. His success dictated the commercial and creative standpoint of the house.
