A missing former designer for J Mendel and the Olsen Twins' The Row has been found dead in Brooklyn.

So so sad.

A few months ago, we reported that Jay Ott — a fashion designer who had done work for The Row and J Mendel — had gone missing.

The 31-year-old’s body was finally found on Thursday morning in the water off of Pier 4 at Sunset Park in Brooklyn.

An autopsy has been performed, but thus far the results have been inconclusive. However, as of now, police do not suspect foul play. The official cause of death will be announced after additional tests.

This is a huge blow to the fashion community; our hearts go out to any and all who knew Jay.
