About

Deborah Marquit is an independent American designer. Her designs embody a reverence for playful femininity and luxury crafted in fine laces and unusual fabrics. The collection is characterized by its detailed workmanship, and dramatic styling, tailored to sculpt the female form. Notable in the media, a Marquit silhouette is defined by its recognizable trademark shape, fit, and bold color.

Marquit’s calling to lingerie brings together design and architecture. Elements of physics are applied to create a bra so that materials used perform with the movement of the body. Bra design must serve the body, considering gravity and weight of the flesh with bilateral symmetry.

 

MISSION:

The mission of the Deborah Marquit brand is to offer a transporting experience through lingerie, that delivers a feeling of ultra-femininity, exotic sensuality, and fashion allure. To create bras and underwear that enhance and adorn a woman's natural beauty in unencumbered tailored styles that fit and perform with long lasting wear. 

Marquit's vision for flirtatious shapes and classic styles are offered in a menu of designs, each available in a palette of recommended colors, made to order, for your every mood.

History

In 1984, Deborah Marquit introduced her first collection of lingerie in fluorescent colors, pioneering the concept of fashion in lingerie, and disrupting traditional ideas around undergarments. This innovation earned her first sale to seventeen Bloomingdale’s stores across the USA, that launched her brand.

The Deborah Marquit™ label has evolved into an international brand selling through on-line retailers and brick and mortar boutiques such as Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, Net-a-Porter, Matchesfashion.com, Yoox.com, Azaleas, Only Hearts, Soho House Berlin, and many others.

“Deborah Marquit...who does a lot of custom made underwear and bras, she designed some stuff for one of my tours, and so she knows how to make underwear and bras that really fit me.”
Madonna, Harper’s Bazaar

“Best bra in the universe, the only bras I wear... and I’ve got a treasure trove of them in every color and every cup style.”
Wendy Schecter, fashion stylist, Vanity Fair

“There’s nothing more fun than showing a surprise of iridescent pink or electric blue lace peeking out from your workout T-shirt. I love the courage of Deborah’s colors matched with the flattering cut of the bras themselves.”
Susan Sarandon

“The first bras that I have found that are both decorative and so beautifully crafted that they feel like second skin. They seem to take 10 years off your breasts! I ‘m a huge fan.”
Gretchen Mol, “The Notorious Betty Page

I swear to G-d, I wear her stuff and I am hotter, taller, smarter, and SEXIER! My obsession started when I was 18 and hasn’t stopped. Nothing seems to fit me like her line. It ROCKS!”
