At Lafayette 148 New York, caring for the world beyond our four walls is woven into the fabric of who we are. As a company led by women for women, compassion is at our core.
For us, simply creating beautiful clothes is not enough— there is a common thread of cultivating deep connections with the people and communities we touch. Of enriching the world through education. And safeguarding the precious resource that is our planet. To us, success means nothing if it’s not shared. Please read on to see a few of the ways we’re giving back.
School of Dreams
In 2007, our Co-Founder, Mr. Siu, had a dream. After establishing our state-of-the-art workshop and production facility in his hometown of Shantou, China, he made an extraordinary commitment to the children of his community. And the School of Dreams was born.
From our materials to our business model, to our work to mitigate our impact on the earth, we’re bonded by our belief in leaving a place better than we’ve found it.
Fashion Institute of Technology
Nurturing up-and-coming talent gives us an opportunity to connect with the creators of tomorrow—and hold the door open for those that come after us.
New York Cares
Our home. Our Muse. Our heritage. New York is part of the very fiber of who we are. To the city that has given so much to us for over twenty years, we’re devoted to giving back.
