Diane Gilman

Fashion Designer, TV’s “Jean Queen,” and Pro-Aging Advocate

Diane Gilman started designing clothes as soon as she could hold a crayon. She grew up in Los Angeles—a free spirit of the swingin’ ’60s, embroidering her blue jeans and energizing her creative soul by hanging out with the most talented musicians and poets of the time. Gilman’s career ignited when stars like Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix began wearing her custom jeans. By 1974, her designs were featured in every major department store, and in 1994 she appeared on HSN, the Home Shopping Network, for the first time. Today, her DG2 line is the top-selling fashion brand on the network, with $100 million in sales per year. Gilman is known as the Jean Queen, because her age-defying designs have inspired women to live forever in blue jeans—and forever young.
