SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced founder Jill Fraser will be a guest on “The Marilu Henner Show” on Oct. 8, speaking with host Marilu Henner. “The Marilu Henner Show,” which features guest physicians, health experts and celebrity guests, airs live every weekday from noon to 3 p.m. Eastern Time and can be heard on the GCN Live network or at http://www.marilushow.com. Ms. Fraser’s segment is expected to begin at 2:08 p.m. EDT.
The discussion is expected to touch on how Jill Milan entered the luxury fashion market with a collection of handbags free of animal-based materials. Ms. Fraser was inspired to found Jill Milan when she was unable to find high-quality, luxury handbags that were not made of leather or other animal-based materials. She is a supporter of animal welfare initiatives, and as a former equestrian particularly supports charities that benefit horses.
The Jill Milan collection of luxury handbags is made entirely in Italy, by Italian artisans using Italian materials. Features include hand stitching and metalwork handmade by craftsmen who create jewelry for Europe’s leading luxury brands. All Jill Milan products are free of animal-based materials such as leather, fur and wool.
Jill Milan handbags have become a favorite of celebrities for red carpet events. Actress Amy Poehler carried Jill Milan to the Emmy Awards in September, and other celebrities carrying Jill Milan on the red carpet include two of February’s Academy Award recipients – Anne Hathaway carried Jill Milan to premieres for her films “Les Miserables” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” and Jennifer Lawrence carried Jill Milan to events leading up to January’s Golden Globe Awards.
Jill Milan handbags have drawn increased attention from influential fashion media. W Magazine included the brand’s new Octagon Clutch in the October issue’s “Most Wanted” feature, and previous issues highlighted Jill Milan’s Holland Park Clutch, Art Deco Clutch and 450 Sutter Clutch. Bag Snob covered the Art Deco Clutch in a recent feature, and online entertainment, fashion, and lifestyle news magazine Entertainista named the SoHo Carryall one of the publication's a “Must Have” handbag. The Zoe Report recognized the Newbury Street Portfolio for its ability “to go from the office to cocktail hour.” Wedding media publisher The Knot featured the Art Deco Clutch as part of a striking ensemble in a recent weddings magazine. Influential fashion blog Wendy’s Lookbook featured photos of fashion writer Wendy Nguyen carrying the Art Deco Clutch on her trip to Florence, Italy.
Marilu Henner starred in more than 30 films, six Broadway shows and two hit classic sitcoms. She is a five-time Golden Globe nominee and New York Times best-selling author of nine books on health, parenting, memory and lifestyle improvement. Currently hosting her own radio show, “The Marilu Henner Show,” Ms. Henner has hosted and executive produced two talk shows, “Marilu” and “Shape Up Your Life,” and has guest-starred on every major talk show, earning her the title “Talk Show Guest of the Year” several years in a row.
