The Deborah Marquit couture lingerie collection is recognized by its trademark shape, authentic fit, and iconic use of fluorescent colors. Frequently featured in the media, music videos, and films, the collection has garnered a celebrity following, many of whom are loyal customers.
Garments are engineered by hands-on draping and technical use of fabrics that bring together design and architecture. In bra design, elements of physics are applied, so that combinations of fabrics perform to serve the body, considering movement, gravity, and weight of the flesh with bilateral symmetry.
With a passion for excellence in quality and workmanship, garments are created in curve defining shapes, with rich fabrics and textures that exude femininity and a sumptuous feeling next to the skin.
The company mission is to offer a transporting experience that delivers a feeling of empowered femininity, and alluring sensuality imbued with style. To adorn and enhance womens natural beauty, in unencumbered graphic shapes that fit and perform that add a pop of interest, and a spark of color. To provide investment pieces with long-lasting wear, and in hand-washable luxury fabrics that enrich a woman’s wardrobe.
The collection is offered in groups that each reflect a different fashion genre, available in a range of coordinating styles and recommended color palette.

Company slogan: Light your body, illuminate the path.
In 1984, during an era when it was still considered risqué to reveal your bra and limited choices of Black, White, and Beige foundation garments were offered to women in department stores, Deborah Marquit came up with the idea of creating French lace bras and briefs in Fluorescent colors to be worn as a kind of feminist rebellion and ironic fashion statement. She introduced her first collection in Fluorescents Pink, Yellow, Lime, and Orange underwire bras, bikini briefs, and garter-belts. This innovation earned her first sale to seventeen Bloomingdale's stores across the USA that launched her brand. Beginning in 1985, Marquit expanded her repertoire with Camouflage print, PVC Faux Patent Leather, Denim, and Lamé, initiating the idea of wearing lingerie as clothing.
