At the age of seven Ginny Hilfiger was folding jeans in her brother, Tommy’s first boutique. She went on to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology and work in various divisions of Tommy’s business for 15 years. As the daughter of a jeweler, Ginny continues to be influenced by elegance, subtle detail and beauty. She carries this tradition into her fashion. Expression through clothing concept, design and creation has become her life.
This past February, Ginny H debuted her own line featuring clothes that work around the clock. â€œWhen you get those pieces you can wear all different ways, you feel like you can justify spending money on them.â€? Ginny H is timeless fashion for the woman who wants to look elegant and pretty with ease.
The line embraces rich fabrics from around the world. High quality cottons, linens and silks are used for expressive skirts, tailored separates, elegant day dresses and beautiful blouses. Tailored jackets and stylish skirts are made with the most supple, hand-selected Italian leathers. This luxury line introduces polished and chic women’s wear, focusing on meticulous tailoring and clean silhouettes.
