Fall 2021 marks the 25th anniversary for Lafayette 148, and for Creative Director Emily Smith, a moment to reset, reengage, reimagine. The hope—to honor how far we’ve come and forge a new way forward by reconnecting with our founding values—kindness, intelligence and integrity.
Dorothy Gold (1989)
"Mr. Gold's philosophy was 'There's a woman for every dress and a dress for every woman and its our job to put the two together."
Julian Gold (1982)
"We are well aware we can't out-promote the big stores, but we can out service them. That has been our foremost asset since our inception."
James Glover (2007)
"I look forward to what the future of this industry brings. Change is exciting and we have to embrace it."
