Lafayette 148 New York is world renowned for impeccable tailoring and exquisite fabrications. Designed by Edward Wilkerson since 1998, the line has always included plus-size offerings, and Mr. Wilkerson continues to be committed to designing for a woman’s real life rather than the runway. Refreshing, right? His background includes photography and art collection, both of which inspire his designs. Lafayette 148 New York is a vertically structured company: they own and operate every facet of production, from sourcing fabrics and manufacturing the apparel. This leads to fantastic quality control, and even better apparel results. Luxury at its finest.
