HOLLYWOOD--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jill Milan®, a provider of luxury fashion and accessories, today announced Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye, known collectively as the music duo Maddie & Tae, each carried the Jill Milan Art Deco Clutch to the Country Music Association Awards Wednesday in Nashville, Tenn., where their debut video for “Girl in a Country Song” was recognized as Music Video of the Year. The team was also nominated for the New Artist of the Year and Duo of the Year categories.
“Maddie and Tae looked wonderful Wednesday night, and it was so nice of them to both carry our Art Deco Clutch,” said Jill Fraser, founder and CEO of Jill Milan. “The clutches in gold and silver were part of two great ensembles.” The duo was styled for the CMA Awards by celebrity stylist Tiffany Gifford.
The Art Deco Clutch – Maddie Marlow carried it in gold and Tae Dye carried it in silver – is entirely handmade in Florence, Italy, of fully recyclable Italian stainless steel, and the logo serves as the clutch’s latch. All Jill Milan products are free of animal-based materials such as leather, fur and wool. Ms. Fraser, a longtime vegan and supporter of animal-welfare initiatives, was inspired to found Jill Milan because she was unable to find high-quality, luxury handbags that were not made of leather or other animal-based materials. Jill Milan was named Vegan Business of the Year by Vegans Are Cool.
Jill Milan appears frequently on the red carpets of Hollywood, New York and Europe. Among the celebrities who carry Jill Milan are Academy Award winners Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence, who carried Jill Milan to multiple premieres for their films. Other actresses and singers who have carried Jill Milan for red-carpet appearances include Joanne Frogatt of “Downton Abbey”; Amy Poehler, who carried Jill Milan when she was both nominee and presenter for the Emmy Awards; Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld, who was on many best-dressed lists when she carried the Jill Milan Disc Clutch to the MTV Video Music Awards; and Kerry Washington of ABC’s “Scandal.”
Jill Milan handbags have drawn growing attention from influential fashion media. W Magazine has covered Jill Milan in multiple issues, recognizing the Octagon Clutch and Art Deco Clutch in its “Most Wanted” feature, and The Zoe Report recognized the Newbury Street Portfolio for its ability “to go from the office to cocktail hour.”
