About Us




Fashion bloggers and influencers draw a lot of inspiration for my personal style. I reach for fun and bold pieces while mixing textures. I would say my style is all over the board which makes it fun and exciting! I could be in my sneakers one day and in heels the next. It really just depends on how I feel that day or what the occasion is. I also draw inspiration through fashion weeks which can be seen a lot within Jilaine Swim. I'm always styling Jilaine pieces whether it's a casual day out with friends or a night out on the town. 

I wanted to go with a school that offered creative majors, and not a traditional college - it just wasn’t for me. At first, I didn't even want to go to college, but once I found FIDM it was a perfect fit. I also considered cosmetology school, and I worked at MAC Cosmetics for a year! 

Never give up on your passion. Even when you’re going through hard times, there is always a light at the end that will pull you through. I always felt I had a purpose to share something big, but never knew what it would be–except knowing it would be fashion related. 

Jilaine is my grandmother's name, and it was passed down to me as my middle name. The name is super unique which I love - The origin is from my great grandmother who loved both the names Jill and Elaine but couldn't decide on one. Therefore, she combined the two and that is how the name Jilaine came about. It has always felt super unique and creative, and it has special meaning since it came from my grandmother.
