A Quick Q&A with Jordan Henrion
By: Sonia Zmihi
Jordan Henrion’s passion for communication and digital started about 10 years ago. Digital influencer from the first generation, he created the Les Frères Ainsworth Studio in 2006: one of the first personal web platforms dedicated to fashion lifestyle and travels for men. This interest for communication strategy and media lead him to join the digital team of Les Editions Jalou (for the launch of the web editions of their magazine) before working with the PR, Event and Communication team of KENZO Paris (management of the worldwide agencies, organisation of the fashion shows, VIP management..) For the last 3 years, Jordan played both roles of Creative Consultant for Ykone and «Parisian Cool Kid» as Vogue Magazine loves to describe him (being the face of multiples creative campaigns around the world and creating content for Luxury Brands including Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith..). He also shared recently his passion with young students from the Mannheim University as a TedxSpeaker. He is now Creative Director at Ykone where he fully dedicates himself to develop the creativity of the agency.
