Lafayette 148 New York is a New York-based women’s fashion brand known for sophisticated, clean-lined designs that fuse luxurious fabrics, outstanding craftsmanship, and a modern sensibility inspired by the dynamism of New York City. With its own design studio and production facility, it is rarity in the fashion world: a truly vertically integrated brand.
In 1996, Lafayette 148’s founders, Deirdre Quinn, Shun Yen Siu and Ida Siu, had a singular vision of fashion’s future. They imagined a company that combined concept, design and production all under one roof. A place with a globally minded culture that married its Eastern and Western roots and took an inclusive approach to design, making beautiful, meticulously constructed clothing for accomplished women everywhere, regardless of size or shape. And Lafayette 148 was born.
Today, the company employs more than 2,000 people worldwide. In Fall 2018, Lafayette 148 moved its corporate headquarters from the Soho address where it was founded to an expansive, sustainably renovated loft space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, continuing its tradition of innovation in the fashion industry. At the brand’s founding address—148 Lafayette Street—the Soho Concept Store continues to welcome clients with a highly personalized, luxurious shopping experience.
Globally, customers can explore the world of Lafayette 148 at one of twenty-one freestanding stores, including five US locations from New York to Miami to California, as well as sixteen in China, including shops in Shanghai and Beijing, and more planned in the coming year. Lafayette 148 New York is also available in the world’s most luxurious stores, including Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdales, Holt Renfrew, as well over 180 high-end specialty boutiques across North America.
