The Deborah Marquit collection is created with a passion for playful feminine luxury that celebrates the joy and freedom of the female spirit.
Committed to unencumbered silhouettes, styles are designed to enhance the natural beauty of the female form. By bringing together design and architecture, materials are combined to serve the body, considering movement, weight, gravity, and symmetry.
Deborah's designs are notable for their trademark silhouettes, authentic fit, and bold color expression. Clean, modern shapes provide provocative details to layer or expose.
Fabrics are chosen for their composition, beauty, functionality, texture, and performance. Both imported and domestic materials are used, including hand-loomed laces.
Located in New York City, USA, garments are produced by masters in the art of intimate apparel manufacturing and made with devotion to quality, precision, and care.

Company Slogan: Light your body, illuminate the path.
Beginning in 1984, when it was still considered daring for a woman to reveal her bra, and when retailers offered mostly restrictive styles in utilitarian standards black, white, or beige, Deborah Marquit created the first lace bras, and briefs in fluorescent colors, to wear ironically, as a feminist fashion statement in the rebellion of the status quo.
Introducing her first collection in Fluorescents Pink, Yellow, Lime, and Orange earned her first sale to 17 Bloomingdale's stores across the USA that launched her brand.
Beginning in 1985, breaking further from tradition, Marquit expanded her collection and was the first designer to offer bras and briefs in Camouflage print, Faux Patent Leather, Denim, and Lamé foundation garments, introducing the style trends that initiated fashion into the intimate apparel marketplace.
Deborah Marquit was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2009.
