Jylle engages in a range of different techniques from hand knitting, machine knitting and macramé to create her highly visible garments. Her designs heavily feature unconventional materials as well as a mix of different yarns, hand crafted, one of a kind piece’s. The Inspiration for her creations originate from the graphic images of sci-fi films and graphic novels, such as "Alien, ? "Mars Attacks,? and "Planet 9 from Outer Space?. This stemmed the creation of highly colourful interactive clothes that provoke intense reactions. The silhouettes and textures are reminiscent of the supernatural, shape-shifting creatures, dripping substances and "other worldly? elements. The collection comprises of oversized garments, embellished stand out pieces, and daring accessories such as the woollen balaclavas. The key elements of Jylle's business ethic are global accessibility, gender neutrality and sustainability. Jylle's edgy designs seek to create looks for not only non-conformist individuals who dress as a way of influencing the world, but also show affordable, less daring pieces to add some electricity into the wardrobes of those more introvert than extrovert. They are for vibrant people who love life or quiet flames looking for an exclusive look or item made of exceptional quality. By using juxtaposed colours and textures Jylle's innovations revive the reputation of knitwear by injecting fun and frivolity back into the serious business; adding a distinctive twist to the ancient craft tradition that she embraces.“With my asymmetric shapes, layering, fringing, draping, and use of neon bright, I’m continuously pursuing the boundaries of bold artwork, diverse statement pieces and a daring approach to knitwear.” says Jylle. Jylle's work has appeared on celebrities such as Debbie Harry, Pete Burns, Peaches, and Nicki Minaj. She also assisted in the design of top collections for Louise Grey?s A/W 2012 Catwalk show.
