More About Jonathan Blake
Established in 2012, Jonathan Blake LLC is a privately held company with solid financial backing. Tinkle, who is the founder and chief fashion designer, hails from a successful, entrepreneurial family with ventures involving trucking, logistics and imports/exports. A Houston native, Tinkle began sketching designs for women’s dresses at the age of 14 and briefly pursued a career in modeling and acting. He completed The Tenney High School in 2009 and enrolled in The Art Institute of Houston at age 18. It was there that Tinkle brought one of his sketches to life in the form of a custom-made, black cocktail dress fitted for and modeled by his younger sister. Shortly thereafter, Tinkle left The Art Institute and devoted all of his time and energy to planning the launch of Jonathan Blake as a full-fledged fashion design company.
Inspired by Chanel, Valentino and Versace, Jonathan Blake's designs are timelessly “wearable,” classic, and elegant for women of all ages and varying sizes. All of Jonathan Blake’s pieces in the Spring/Summer 2013 collection are made of jewel-toned, natural fabrics sourced from New York City, Europe and Asia. Pieces in the collection originated from pencil sketches by Tinkle and were completed with the help of Houston-based pattern makers and seamstresses. Most of the skirts and dresses in the collection are designed for cocktail and evening wear. Some business blouses, jackets, skirts and slacks are also included. Sizes range from 0 to 12, and prices range from $275 for blouses to $13,000 for evening dresses.
