Heidemarie Jiline "Jil" Sander born 27 November 1943 is a minimalist German fashion designer and the founder of the Jil Sander fashion house.

 il Sander opened her first Hamburg store in 1967 aged just 24, but it was with the advent of '90s minimalism that her pure, understated designs really came into their own. Today the label continues to display the same androgynous, clean-lined aesthetic that made it famous.
