Finally, a New York designer who creates affordable clothes for real women to wear for real life -- not just for 22-year-old size 2s to match with a pair of knockoff Pradas and wear out clubbing. This narrow, peaceful shop and studio is lined on both sides with Jill's simple, clean-lined designs, which drape beautifully and accentuate a woman's form without clinging. They're wearable for all ages and many figure types. (Her small sizes are small enough to fit petites, and her larges generally fit a full-figured size 14.) Her clothes are feminine without being frilly, retro-reminiscent but completely modern, understated, and utterly stylish.
