Jill Fairchild has spent her life in fashion. As the daughter of publishing legend and W magazine founder John Fairchild, she grew up with fashion all around her. Today she is the founder and creator of Fairchild Baldwin, an accessory brand based in New York City.
It’s no surprise that Fairchild is inspired by all that surrounds her, from art and food, to architecture and the color palettes of her everyday surroundings. Fairchild Baldwin’s handbag and jewelry collections are designed to take women from day to evening, classic chic to boho, minimal to contemporary cool. Color plays an important role in Fairchild’s designs, while the shape and construction of each style boasts the perfect balance of beauty and functionality.
“Our women are collectors who are confident in their own style,” says Fairchild.
BELLA got an exclusive with the stylish Fairchild about her beautiful brand, gift-buying and what the holidays mean to her.
“For me, the holidays are really about the two most important things in life—my family and friends. They are the bonds I cherish most and the holiday season provides the chance to celebrate all that those people mean to me. They also are a time to reflect on the year gone by and reminisce about both the happy and challenging times, while at the same time embracing the excitement of the new year ahead.”
