Who We Are

Decades of innovative thinking have grown us into a leader in the fashion industry.

Overview

Fashion is our business. But we don't believe in business as usual. Our roots are in outerwear, and through expertise in sourcing, design and manufacturing, we've expanded our offerings into all product categories at compelling prices. By challenging conventional wisdom and changing with the times, we've evolved from a small domestic manufacturer into a global leader with one of the world's most sought-after portfolio of brands, and consistently share our success with our retailers.

VALUES AND VISION

Passionate, agile, entrepreneurial. That’s
the secret of our steady growth.
Our mission is to redefine what’s possible.
And build our business into something that
will last for generations
to come.

LEADERSHIP TEAM

“Our greatest asset is our people.
We empower them to think creatively—and
we depend on them to succeed every day”.

– Morris Goldfarb, ceo
