Jil Sander (1943)

After founding her label in 1973, the German designer met with huge success in the 1980s with her understated luxurious working garments. She set the standards for 1990s' minimalism before leaving her house's artistic direction to Raf Simons. In 2012, Jil Sander came back and was eager to continue designing sophisticated, feminine and modern garments.
