Jay Forest
 / Styliste

Le talent de Jay Forest comme styliste reflète son parcours de vie unique, un heureux mélange d’ambition, de curiosité et d’ouverture. Originaire d’Acapulco, il arrive à Montréal au tournant des années 2000 avec en poche, un intérêt marqué pour les médias, la mode et la publicité. Pendant ses études, il s’immerge graduellement à l’industrie de la mode comme assistant auprès de stylistes de renom et en tant que vendeur responsable des collections haute couture à la Maison Simons. Un saut à la section complets hommes chez Holt Renfrew et il se retrouve au magazine Off The Hook, où comme acheteur pour la section femmes, il parcourt l’Europe et les États-Unis à la découverte des nouvelles tendances. Son implication dans l’industrie influence son style qui se définit graduellement. On lui doit ce regard frais, d’une élégante simplicité et des alliances réussies d’urbain et de contemporain. Par son travail, Jay cherche a transcender les vêtements pour mettre en lumière les personnes qui les habitent. Rapidement, on reconnaît autant son humanité que son audace et il collabore avec les magazines Elle Québec, Dress to Kill, Snap, enRoute, Clin d’œil et sur divers projets en télévision. Des photographes comme John Londono, Maude Arsenault, Maxyme G. Delisle et Shayne Laverdière reconnaissent aussi son talent.

La perpétuelle évolution de Jay lui confère un regard unique sur la mode, un talent brut qui dynamise l’équipe de Folio depuis 2012.

Jay Forest’s talent as a stylist reflects his unique life journey, a happy mixture of ambition, curiosity and openness. A native of Acapulco, he arrived in Montreal in the early 2000s with a strong interest in media, fashion and advertising. During his studies, he gradually immersed himself in the fashion industry as an assistant to renowned designers and as a seller of high fashion collections at Maison Simons. A quick jump to the men’s section at Holt Renfrew and he found himself at Off The Hook magazine, where as a buyer for the women's section, he toured Europe and the United States to discover new trends. His involvement in the industry influenced his style. He has a fresh look on fashion and presents, with an elegant simplicity, successful alliances of urban and contemporary. Through his work, Jay seeks to transcend clothing to highlight the people who inhabit them. Rapidly, he has been recognized for both his humanity and his daring works for Elle Québec, Dress to Kill, Snap, enRoute, Clin d’Oeil and through various television projects. Photographers like John Londono, Maude Arsenault, Maxyme G. Delisle and Shayne Laverdière also recognize his talent.

The ever-changing Jay has a unique take on fashion, a raw talent that energizes the Folio team since 2012.
