SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 27, 2013
Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced founder Jill Fraser will be a guest on the “Vegan and the Living is Easy” radio show. Ms. Fraser will speak with hosts Ginger Burr and Marion Davis Sept. 30 at 8 p.m. EDT online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gingerburr.
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 find 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 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 earlier this week, 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 its 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.
Before creating Jill Milan, Ms. Fraser headed up marketing for a number of private and venture-backed technology and consumer product companies, and was a co-founder of a consumer goods company. Ms. Fraser is an avid equestrian and animal advocate, and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Oxford University, England.
