My love for fashion began at a young age. I have always enjoyed getting dressed up, even coordinating outfits independently by the age of 4. By age 11, I started acting as my family’s stylist. I helped my parents get ready for every event; weddings, dinner parties, and get togethers. During this time is when my passion truly flourished, I soon realized fashion would play a major role in my life.
When it was time to go to college, I knew in my heart I wanted to study fashion in one of the leading fashion capitals of the world. I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Fashion Merchandising Management. I have over 10 years combined experience working in retail and the luxury bridal world. These experiences inspired me to pursue the dream of combining my love for fashion with my entrepreneurial spirit through the creation of The Designer Bungalow. If you’re anything like me, checking ten different sites to make sure you get the best price, The Designer Bungalow hopes to lessen the amount of clicks by offering amazing prices for designer must haves.
The site is designed for all women, regardless of their age or budget. We have handbags, shoes, jackets, pants, suits, tops and much more. There is something here for everyone! I enjoy going through great lengths to get the hottest items of the season. The merchandise displayed on the site is obtained by me through attending sample sales, private sales, boutiques, consignment shops, as well as searching through fabulous fashionistas’ closets. Each piece has been selected with quality and the current trend in mind. I aim for the items that are unworn, with tickets. Every woman has those impulsive buys and/ or risky purchases, where you thought you might try to step out of your comfort zone of your every day style, just to have it take up room in your closet. I want to help you ladies sell those items, and make some cash along the way!
I welcome any questions or comments you may have. Please feel free to contact me directly at Jillian@thedesignerbungalow.com. I look forward to working with you!!
