[Bio adapted from the Chickdowntown blog :]
Jill Stuart is nothing short of an adolescent fashion prodigy. This New Yorker launched her self-titled women’s brand in 1993, but has been surrounded by the fashion world since she was a young girl. In the ’60s, her parents owned a popular ladies boutique in Manhattan that prompted her teenage years to be spent designing in such as jewelry and handbags. At the age of 15, Bloomingdales picked up her first line of accessories. These designs were her foundation in the ’80s, which ultimately propelled her to create her first line of women’s clothing. Today, Jill Stuart is known for her supreme ability incorporate the latest trend in her designs, no matter the genre: feminine, funky, formal or flashy. She branches off of these ideas and puts her own hip twist on them, while keeping her love of ultra-girly and vintage apparel intact. Her signatures include flirty dresses, fabulous accessories, painted-on jeans and accents of lace and floral – all providing an air of sensuality, while still maintaining a classic appeal.
