LaQuan Smith | Queens, New York native LaQuan Smith launched his company at age 21. Smith learned the basics of sewing and pattern creation from his grandmother when he was young. Beyoncé, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Kim Kardashian were just a few of the early fans of the talented designer because of their interest in his unique style.
The brand’s unending archive of distinctive clothing and accessories has earned it praise since its official launch in 2013. Smith has developed a globally dispersed private order clientele, with clients located everywhere from Lagos to London. Brands like Heineken, Tidal, Samsung, Microsoft, and Verizon have all sought out Smith to direct their marketing campaigns because of his undeniably glossy image. The headquarters and factories of LaQuan Smith’s namesake label are located in Long Island City, New York City, and the company ships worldwide.
