Jill Pillot who breathes new life into 2nd-hand materials through the process of “up-cycling,” turning them into unique,
wearable works of art. Her chic looks for women and cute, comfortable clothes for kids have won many awards and, more
importantly, make people smile and satisfy the community she serves. In 2010, Jill won the 1st Prize for Evening Wear
awarded by the St Vincent De Paul’s Discarded to Devine as well as 1st Prize for Best Art-Inspired Awarded by the De
Young Museum, at the De Young Museum . Pieces were auctioned off at the St Mary’s Cathedral benefiting the St .Vincent
de Paul Society’s services to people battling poverty, homelessness and domestic violence. Jill was also a featured designer
during Bay Area Fashion Week 2012 and represents Ricochet as a small business committed to promoting creativity along
with a socially responsible and green way of life.
