“We’ve always made a conscious effort to design for real women. As women ourselves, it’s a natural part of our process.”
—Creative Director Emily Smith
Inclusive sizing has been woven into the fabric of Lafayette 148 since our founding. With fifty-eight sizes in our line, we are devoted to making beautiful, meticulously constructed clothing for accomplished women everywhere, regardless of size or shape.
Inside the Design
Our designers work hand-in-hand with our world-class patternmaking team to guarantee a consistent fit that works in harmony with a woman’s body. We create a unique pattern for every size, finessing proportions, tweaking seams and refining the design through fittings. Next, our team tries on each garment to ensure it fits perfectly, so by the time you see the collection, we’ve already tested and loved every piece. If we won’t wear it, we won’t make it.
