Jayma Sacco is an American-Italian illustrator and designer with a contemporary vision, specializing in the areas of fashion, design, architecture and lifestyle. Interested in merging fine art techniques and design, she works through a multidisciplinary approach.
After studying painting, she began training at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, including a year spent studying at Polimoda in Florence, ultimately earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts diploma in International Fashion Design & Fabric Styling. Her career in fashion design began by working at Isaac Mizrahi’s couture atelier, followed by Carolina Herrera, J. Mendel and the almost century-old, American luxury shoe label Delman.
Sacco then moved to Paris where she began studying at the Sorbonne Université, and eventually co-founded the sustainable Parisian luxury house Maison Sacco Baret, pioneering the movement of ethical plumasserie (feather work) with feather artisan Maxime Leroy and designer Paul Baret. Playing a fundamental role in the brand’s creative direction, her designs and illustrations are often showcased by the house.
Sacco’s designs have appeared in publications such as L’Officiel, Vogue, Elle and on exhibition at the MAMO museum of art in Marseille, the Palais de Tokyo contemporary art center and the Grand Palais in Paris.
For the past decade Sacco has been involved in the international art and fashion arenas, having lived and worked in Paris, New York City, and Florence.
Based in France, Sacco is available for any commissioned works, projects and collaborations.
