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.
Garments are manufactured in New York City, USA, where they are produced with devotion to quality, precision, and care.
Among those loyal to the brand are Zoe Kravitz, Rihanna, Gretchen Mol, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Marisa Tomei, M.I.A., Sarah Jessica Parker, Susan Sarandon, Nicole Kidman, Stella Schnabel, and make-up artist, Bobbi Brown.

Company Slogan: Light your body, illuminate the path.
Beginning in 1984, when it was still considered daring to reveal a bra, retailers offered limited styles in utilitarian black, white, or beige, Deborah Marquit created the first lace bras, briefs, and garter belts in fluorescent colors to wear as an ironic fashion statement in rebellion to the status quo.
Introducing her first lingerie 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, Marquit expanded her collection and was the first designer to offer bras and briefs in Camouflage print, Faux Patent Leather, Denim, and Lamé, that initiated fashion and style into the intimate apparel market.
Deborah Marquit was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2009.
