New York designer Jill Stuart started to create accessories at the age of 15. Beginning in 1993, her ready-to-wear collections focus on a youthful and playful femininity with a meticulous attention to detail. Innovating plenty of well-known styles, Stuart's fashion-forward backpacks, quirky dresses and plaid skirts remain signature pieces. Jill Stuart tops adopt a lively charm, with whimsical design features and statement prints lending themselves to a charming finish. Lace inserts, embellishments and bold pops of color embody the designer's fun-loving appeal.
