History of Womens Jill Sander Shoes
Jil Sander is a German fashion designer who studied as a foreign exchange student in Los Angeles in 1963 before securing a job as a fashion writer in New York. Returning to her home roots in Hamburg in 1968, Sander used her mother’s sewing machine to help launch her own eponymous fashion label, although her first clothing collection was not well received. However, Sander overcame early obstacles and criticism to become hailed as the Queen of uncluttered minimalism and beautifully simplistic designs. Following an acquisition by Prada in 1999, Sander temporarily left her position as chairwoman amid confrontations with the Prada CEO, and the fortunes of the label began to decline. Thankfully, Jil Sander later negotiated a truce in 2003 and returned as creative designer, taking the label into bold new horizons. The Jil Sanders fashion house now produces celebrated footwear, fragrances, clothing and accessories.
