Jill Stuart sold her first collection of silver and leather chokers and suede fringed hobos to Bloomingdale’s at 15 while still attending Manhattan’s Dalton School. Jill later attended the Rhode Island School of Design.

The Jill Stuart Collection began in 1993 with accessories and innovations such as the fashion backpack, cocktail mini dresses and plaid kilt skirts. The film Clueless featured many of the designs from her first sportswear collection fueling her notoriety and international appeal.
