Our Path

Our Path


Lafayette 148 New York is a New York-based women’s fashion brand named after the address in SoHo where we were founded. Created in 1996, we are 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 our new corporate headquarters in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and our very own workshop and production facility, we’re a rarity in the fashion world: a truly vertically integrated brand.

In 1996, our founders, Shun Yen Siu, Deirdre Quinn 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. One that took an inclusive approach to design, making beautiful, meticulously constructed clothing for accomplished women everywhere, regardless of size or shape. And Lafayette 148 New York was born.

More than twenty years later, our quest to discover what’s next continues. In the Summer of 2018, we moved our headquarters to a soaring, sustainably built, 90,000 square foot loft space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77. It’s a bold step towards the Lafayette 148 New York of tomorrow. And we’re just getting started. Meet the team that continues to carry the brand forward.
