Lafayette 148 New York's collections are designed for the sophisticated, modern woman and her multi-faceted lifestyle. Using the world's most luxurious European fabrics and detailed craftsmanship, we produce enduring designs renowned for the highest quality and exceptional fit.
At the heart of Lafayette 148 New York is a global team with a wide range of expertise and strong entrepreneurial spirit. From day one, our namesake Manhattan street address has been home to our company headquarters where our design studio, showroom, marketing, merchandising, and sales departments operate under one roof. Through the years, we have gained not only a loyal clientele, but also widespread notoriety as a coveted fashion brand and production powerhouse.
Our strength as a company truly begins with our vertical structure. By owning every element of our business, we are able to maintain an extraordinary level of quality control. At our state-of-the-art production headquarters in our founder's hometown of Shantou, China, international industry experts guide operations and train our team in innovative techniques. Our expansive 11-story headquarters was built to function seamlessly around our unique workflow - from design to shipment of the final product. Each season, our designs come to life through detailed craftsmanship using luxurious designer fabrics. Our integrated, streamlined approach gives us flexibility and a production turnaround time unparalleled in the industry, as well as the exceptional ability to focus on each detail of our designs to best honor the creative visions of our designer.
The Lafayette 148 New York collection can be found at over 400 stores throughout North America including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, and Holt Renfrew. We also service our clients with a direct-to-consumer business through lafayette148ny.com and a direct mail catalog. We opened our first intercontinental boutique in Shanghai and a second in Beijing with plans for additional locations in China's most fashionable cities.
