According to the German edition of Gala magazine, Jil Sander is preparing her second return to the fashion house she founded and which is now owned by Japanese based Onward Group. Jil Sander founded her company in Germany in 1968, however, since early 2000 the house was owned by Prada Group which convinced her to return for one year between 2003 and 2004. The Jil Sander collection for fast fashion brand Uniqlo was a resounding success. The current designer of the house of Jil Sander, Raf Simmons has been rumoured as being the replacement of John Galliano at Christian Dior for the past 3 months. Jil Sander’s return would happen just in time for the upcoming Tokyo Fashion Week.
