I. THE BRAND
Jillian Boustred is a Sydney based fashion designer. Passionate about design, art and making from an early age, Jillian’s path into the fashion industry was intuitive and organic. Jillian studied a Bachelor of Design in Fashion and Textiles at the University of Technology where she majored in Womenswear. Following her degree, Jillian went on to do a brief stint in the sampling team at Australian fashion label Ellery. With industry experience under her belt, Jillian launched her first collection in 2015 under the label ‘Jillian Boustred’, initially working out of her Annandale share house before moving into a creative co-working space in Alexandria. For the last four years the brand has been based in Chippendale. The slow and steady growth of the label has allowed Jillian to perfect her styles, fabrication and fit.
“Australian made, timeless styles with a contemporary feel and natural fabrication are the core of the label. I have always loved exploring shape and silhouette and designing styles that compliment women’s curves. It’s so important to me that our dresses are worn over and over again and become “go to” pieces in our customers wardrobes, for me the best way to achieve this is through combining comfort, fit and fabrication” - Jillian
