Comments on: "Jil Sander Quotes: I am convinced that there can be luxury in simplicity."
The apparent pointlessness of fashion may be just what makes it so strong as a zeitgeist sensor. Even I, a designer, do not know why a certain proportion feels dated or why another one feels exciting at a given moment. I leave that to the cultural historians and theorists.
The ’90s were extremely diverse, almost like a laboratory of the new century. There was much experimenting around, in politics, economics, gender and family structures, and also in fashion. There was a cloud of possibilities which kept us all dizzy.
|Birth:||27th November, 1943|
Heidemarie Jiline "Jil" Sander was born in Wesselburen, Germany. She is a German fashion designer. She studied at the University of California, Los Angeles. After her stint in UCLA, she moved on to New York as a magazine fashion writer. She founded her own fashion house Jil Sander in Rotherbaum, Hamburg, Germany in 1968 with her mother's sewing machine. She overcame a poorly received first Jil Sander Paris collection shown at the Plaza Athénée in 1975 and listed her company on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange at the end of the 1980s. In 1999, Prada Group bought a 75% share in her company. She remained creative designer and became chairwoman in the new joint venture. In January 2000, she unexpectedly resigned abruptly as chairwoman. On 17 March 2009, she announced the creation of her own fashion consultancy. The new company's first client was Fast Retailing of Japan with its Uniqlo label for whom Sander is overseeing the design of womenswear and menswear collections called +J. She was awarded the Bundesverdienstkreuz by the Federal Republic of Germany for her achievements in the fashion industry.
