Anais-Jourden Mak Chun Ting founded JOURDEN in 2012. The designer was named ‘Anais' for her parent's French aspirations, and ‘Jourden' (pronounced as Jordan) for its androgynous note. Following graduation from Studio Berçot in Paris, Mak pursued the launch of her own label JOURDEN. Praised for her elaborate work on textures and beautifully crafted collections, the label has been described as tough, chic, naughty, unapologetically feminine and sublimely masculine - ‘Think vintage Chanel meets David Lynch, with hints of 1950s tough-guy cinema'.
