Jill Bauwens

Founded in 2022 by Jill Bauwens, The Irish Twin is a Paris-based brand that proposes limited-edition artisanal dresses and objects manufactured in France. Inspiration comes from the seduction of dressing up, the art of living to the fullest. Every creation expresses a sense of special occasion and attracts the eye.

Born in 1989, only eleven months apart, both Jill and her sister Steffy are Irish Twins. For the last decade they worked as a creative duo for several fashion houses. Today they went both their ways and therefore Jill founded THE IRISH TWIN.

Jill grew up in Antwerp, Belgium and became a professional model in 2008. During this time, she gained valuable insight into the fashion world and gradually shifted careers. In 2014, she was named co-creative director for The Kooples before working alongside Olivier Theyskens for several years.

With The Irish Twin, she applies her understanding of the fabrication process to her passions: hosting with style and collecting rare, eclectic objects. A dreamy vision that speaks to our everyday desires.

At THE IRISH TWIN, we believe that fashion is a means of creative expression, and that dressing up is an escape into beauty. Our RTW line is called “Host-wear” because we believe that entertaining is an art form, and that dressing up is an integral part of that art.

Our Host-wear collection is designed to help you make a statement and feel confident while hosting events or throwing a party and enjoying life’s special moments with ease and confidence.It’s not just about looking polished and sophisticated - it’s about infusing your style with a rebellious attitude that sets you apart from the crowd, that allows you to make a statement. Our pieces are designed to be comfortable, versatile and effortlessly cool, whether you are hosting a dinner party or rocking out at a concert. 

Each piece is meticulously crafted by hand in Paris, using eco-friendly materials and unique techniques.

"All our styles are named after members of my family. The Ziggi and The Nori for my two daughters Zelda and Norma, The Pachi for my mother, The Slizi for my sister Steffy, who’s second name is Lizi, The Jiji because my closest friends and family call me Jiji."

In this spirit, Jill invites you to the enchanted world of The Irish Twin.
