about jill anderson

Jill Anderson is the underground go-to designer for accomplished and creative New York women in the know. For the past 17 years, she has been selling her handmade creations in her eponymous downtown NYC boutique, hailed by the press as “the headquarters for East Village chic.” Each piece of clothing in Jill’s store begins its life as a pattern whose first sample is sewn by Anderson herself in her studio two blocks away. After that, her crackerjack production team meticulously sews each limited-edition design from first stitch to the last buttonhole.

Anderson’s innovative designs are rendered in exquisite fabrics, and the cut compliments almost every body type and size. Each piece, like her signature “Parachute Dress,” “Skirt Pant,” and “Italian Widow Dress,” features clean, unusual lines that meld architectural construction with vintage allusions. Anderson’s clothes feel great to wear because they’re supremely comfortable without sacrificing style. They can be professionally polished for a business meeting, sexy but subtle for a night on the town, or creatively combined for any occasion. Factor in layering options and the possibilities are endless.

Jill’s loyal clientele are hardworking, intelligent, and fashionable women who know they can rely on her clothes to feel their best no matter the season or occasion. They also believe in thinking globally by buying their finery locally, and supporting independent, woman-owned businesses!

Jill Anderson debuted her collection in 1989 in Athens, Greece, and six years later opened the Jill Anderson boutique at 331 E. Ninth Street in New York’s East Village. Her uniquely tailored designs have garnered praise from Elle, Marie Claire, Brazilian Vogue, The New York Times Magazine, Women’s Wear Daily, and more. In addition to managing a thriving business, Jill has collaborated on costume design with dance companies such as the Wally Cardona Quartet and the Philippa Kaye Dance Group.

Most recently, Jill Anderson designed and created the dress for writer/director Debra Granik, whose film Winter’s Bone was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay.

    Dear Jill and Crew.
    It is Sunday, Nov. 17th and I am very sad.
    I so enjoyed your shop. My occasional visits from Atlanta
    Georgia to NYC will not be nearly as interesting without a visit to your
    boutique. Not to mention that the Jill Anderson designs are the
    favorites in my closet!
    With your creativity and talent I am sure (hoping) there is another
    venture in mind. Good luck with that and please keep me on the
    mailing list.

    I have admired your work and was getting ready to come in to work with you on a dress for a ball I’m attending in the spring of ’14. Very sad to learn your boutique has closed. Please put me on your mailing list so I can learn about where and how you might do business in the future.

    Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
