Committed to unencumbered silhouettes tailored to enhance the natural beauty of the female form, design and architecture are applied to combine materials that serve the body in consideration of movement, weight, gravity, and symmetry.

History

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.

In 1985, breaking further from tradition, Marquit expanded her collection and was the first designer to introduce underpinnings in Camouflage print, Faux Patent Leather, Denim, and Lamé, 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.
