Who is Jamie Mazur?
Born in an unspecified location in California, USA, on 11 April 1981 under the fire sign of Aries, Jamie Mazur is a 38-year-old American entrepreneur, fashion designer and businessman. She is best known as the founder of Underground Denim, and the co-founder of RE/DONE Jeans, two influential clothing brands. However, his status as a designer might be overshadowed by his 13-year relationship with Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio. Mazur popped the question three years after they began dating, and they spent their final ten years as an engaged couple.

Their break-up came as a surprise to everyone, and speculations were widespread, with theories ranging from infidelity to homosexuality being published in the media.
Early Life and Education: Growing Up in California
Jamie was born and raised in Southern California (So-Cal) with one sibling, an older sister named Jennifer Mazur, who is a fashion designer and stylist too, but there is no information on the names and professions of his parents, mostly because Mazur is a very private person, despite his celebrity status. He has always politely declined to talk about anything unrelated to his career as a designer.
However, we do know that he harbored an interest in design from an early age.
‘Buying clothes was like a holiday to me when I was a kid’, concurred Mazur. ‘What fascinated me was the process of creation – how a sketch turns into a real, wearable thing…’ As for his education, he matriculated from an unknown high school in California in 1999; there is no indication that he attended an art school or formally studied design, but many famous fashion designers are self-taught and it’s highly likely that Jamie himself belongs in such exclusive company.
Career: Underground Denim and RE/DONE Jeans
Not much is known about Jamie’s professional accomplishments. His first business venture was Underground Denim (UD), which specializes in signing contracts with notable jeans manufacturers, so that they can resell them at an affordable price.
Much of UD’s success revolves around college students, as Mazur organized pop-up shops and stalls on college campuses, targeting a young, fashion-oriented demographic. The brands they resell include Blue Cult, True Religion, AG, Rock & Republic among many others. With such an innovative sales concept, Mazur is considered to be one of the founders of the reselling trend, which involves big stores and companies selling high fashion pieces at reasonable prices – one might wonder how they make a profit. His other venture is RE/DONE Jeans, which has a contract with Levis, perhaps the most legendary jeans manufacturer in the world.
Their concept involves redoing old Levis models and making them fit perfectly. However, as time went by, the brand became immensely popular and they’ve since expanded into other apparel, such as jackets, T-shirts and hoodies. Mazur’s work as a designer and entrepreneur has allowed him to meet many important people in the fashion industry; his jeans are worn by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Emily Ratajkowsky and, most importantly – Alessandra Ambrosio.
Meeting Alessandra Ambrosio
Jamie and his former belle, Alessandra Ambrosio, met way back in 2005. He was an important face in fashion even back then, which gave him the opportunity to work with Victoria’s Secret, which is just one of the brands that made Alessandra into the superstar she is today.
She happily wore RE/DONE jeans in honor of her beau, which signified that they were indeed in a happy place for most of their time together. In 2008 Jamie finally popped the question – what’s interesting is that nobody knew about them being an item before Alessandra officially announced their engagement.
Do Alessandra Ambrosio and Jamie Mazur Have Children?
Yes, they have a girl, Anja Louise Ambrosio Mazur born in 2008, in Florianopolis, Brazil, and Noah Phoenix, their son, was born on 7 May, 2012, also in Brazil. Even though Alessandra hails from this South American country, people found it peculiar that the children weren’t born in the US. Rumors began swirling that Ambrosio posed an ultimatum to Mazur, stating that she would leave him if he didn’t comply with her wishes that the children be born in her home country.
In the end, it turned out to be just a rumor, but perhaps it was a sign of things to come, although almost a decade later.
Why Did Jamie Mazur and Alessandra Ambrosio Split Up?
Alessandra shocked the world in March 2018, when she announced that she and Jamie had broken up, without explanation, so rumors began swirling rampantly. Several news outlets questioned Jamie’s faithfulness to his fiancee, with some even suggesting that he might be gay, and that he begged Alessandra not to leave him so that people wouldn’t find out; of course, this turned out to be false. So, the general consensus is that Ambrosio wasn’t ready for marriage, and that her unwillingness to tie the knot was a deal-breaker for Jamie.

In one interview, Alessandra was asked what was she waiting for and why, even after two children together. She stated that she wasn’t ready, and that her work didn’t allow her to take some time to plan a perfect wedding. In late 2017, she stopped working with Victoria’s Secret, which gave her some much needed time to plan the reception. Unfortunately, the breakup occurred, although apparently the two split under amicable circumstances.
Does Jamie Mazur Have a Girlfriend or Is He Single?
There is no information pertaining to Jamie’s current relationship status – since his break-up with Alessandra, there has been no news related to his personal life, and he hasn’t been seen in any particular female company.
Thus, it’s safe to assume that he’s single and focused on his business ventures, currently on preparing the 2020 Autumn/Winter collection for RE/DONE.
Body Measurements: How Tall is Jamie Mazur?
Jamie Mazur is 5ft 8in (173cm) tall – his weight and other measurements are unknown. Not only is he the same height as his ex-fiancee, but they were also born on the exact same day – 11 April 1981. What an interesting couple!
Net Worth: How Rich is Jamie Mazur?
Have you ever wondered how affluent Alessandra Ambrosio’s ex really is? According to several credible sources, Jamie Mazur has a net worth of approximately $30 million, as of late-2019.

He accumulated this immense wealth by being a revolutionary figure in the world of fashion, developing and perfecting new means of advertising and audience targeting. Both Underground Denim and RE/DONE Jeans are highly successful brands, which makes his eight-figure wealth unsurprising. As he’s still going strong, we can expect him to become even richer this time next year.
Social Media Presence
As an influential fashion designer, Jamie sees social media as an instrumental marketing tool, which helps him tease new collections and build-up hype for his upcoming releases. Currently, he only has an Instagram account, on which 50,000 people follow him. In addition to his fashion-related posts, Jamie likes to take photos of picturesque scenery, his children and even memes.
