If you would like to learn more: Deborah Marquit (born in Brooklyn, New York, USA ) is an American Fashion designer specializing in women's foundations and intimate apparel and was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2009, in 2016, Marquit created lingerie for Rihanna, Scarlet Johansson, and Zoe Kravitz. Marquit's collections marry the ironic and the traditional and her creations initiated the idea to wear lingerie meant to be seen or to wear as clothing. Marquit is the first known fashion designer to introduce the use of Fluorescent (Neon) colors in the creation of women's foundation garments, bras, and underwear in 1984, during a period in fashion when it was considered indecent for a bra to be showing from under a woman's clothing. This innovation earned her first sale to 17 Bloomingdales stores across the USA that launched her brand globally. Beginning in 1985, Marquit introduced RTW (ready to wear) fabrics within her collections creating foundations made with atypical materials such as camouflage print, Pleather, and Denim initiating a fashion trend for lingerie to be worn as clothing and filling the void where lingerie meets fashion. In 2016 the company has grown to an international brand selling to both retail and wholesale channels. She began her career as a fashion illustrator for Women's Wear Daily before moving into the fashion market. Deborah Marquit collections are manufactured in New York City, USA and sell to retailers, such as Barneys, Net-a-Porter, and Yoox.com.
