Sander studied at Krefeld School of Textiles and was a foreign exchange student at the University of California, Los Angeles (63–64).
She then moved on to New York as a magazine fashion writer. At age 21, she came back to Hamburg to join her family after their father’s unexpectedly death.

Sander founded her own fashion house Jil Sander in Rotherbaum, Hamburg, Germany in 1968 using her mother's sewing machine. Her first collection was for Hoechst, a chemical company, using their trevira fabric. In 1973, she launched a collection under her own label. Her first collection show of 75 at at the Plaza Athénée in Paris did poorly but by the 80’s she had listed her company in the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. She dominated the 80’s and 90’s and reported $114 Million in sales in 1995.

Sanders sold 75% shares to Prada in 1999 and left her position as chairwomen and creative director due to issues with Pradas CEO Patrizio Bertelli. The company reported did bad after her departure until Sander returned to the company as head designer and partner surprisingly in May 2003. after her noncompete clause had expired. Officially, Bertelli "approached Ms. Sander and began negotiating a truce". Bertelli had, with regard to Sander's departure in 2000, boldly stated before: "A brand as strong as Jil Sander doesn't need to rely on the name of a designer". She was rehired under a six-year consulting contract and also received an undisclosed stake in the company and a seat on Prada's strategic committee.
