THE FOUNDERS

Arjé is the brain child of BESSIE AFNAIM CORRAL + OLIVER CORRAL.
The husband and wife duo who have a vision to change the rhythm and purpose of the luxury fashion industry.

Bessie Afnaim Corral was raised in London with Mediterranean roots. Constantly inspired by her mixed background and diverse family culture, she has been dreaming, designing and creating from a young age. Having trained at Parsons School of Design, Bessie launched her career as Co-Head Designer for Donna Karan’s Private Label, Urban Zen.

Oliver Corral, a Spaniard, trained as a designer and pattern maker in Madrid under the great tailor Señor Anselmo. A genuine creative with a clear business brain and ability to execute any idea he conjures up, Oliver learnt his skills working in lead design roles for numerous fashion brands, most notably CH Carolina Herrera.

The two met in New York City in the summer of 2009 and together they took the reins of Urban Zen, where they remained for seven years, responsible for all facets of the brand. Their rare 360 Experience allowed them to understand and work with every corner of the industry. They believed the landscape of fashion was broken and believe Luxury fashion is no longer adapted to the ease and logic of present life.

And so, ARJÉ was born.
A dynamic brand that defines the concept of Modern Luxury.

ARJÉ the term used by Ancient Greek Philosophers to describe the essence of everything.
