Hear Jes Gordon’s incredible career story, from running a flower shop in New Mexico where Anne Rice discovered her and asked her to move her business to New Orleans, where the late Warner LeRoy asked her to be the in-house event designer at NYC’s Tavern on the Green, to then starting her own company and working with the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, Nicholas Cage, Harrison Ford, and others. Jes’ unconventional story is intertwined with her unique philosophy of design, where there are no rules that can’t be broken to deliver an incredible client experience.
