Charlotte Brody was the beloved Grandmother of our Founder,
Jennifer Argenti, and remains one of her favorite muses.
Charlotte Brody was as likely to be innovating organic gardening techniques as serving as a master rose judge or shopping in the world’s finest fashion boutiques, and commissioning what she could not find. But her garden was her passion. She believed that nature strengthens the soul. She was a woman both of her time and ahead of it. She was my grandmother.
Charlotte Brody New York, founded in her honor, has both seasonal and made-to-order collections. Each has special, yet practical, pieces that prepare you for every facet of your life. Like its namesake, Charlotte Brody New York blends exceptional beauty with the down-to-earth style of a life well lived.
Our clothes are known for their luxurious fabrics, couture details and artisanal touches. They are sold at Trunk Shows throughout the country by our hand-selected Stylists, in our New York Atelier and online. By eliminating traditional retail mark-ups, we are able to deliver luxury at an extraordinary value.
I am committed to ethical fashion. That means reducing the carbon footprint by designing and manufacturing our clothes in New York City. It also means producing small quantities. I am proud to be forging a new and more responsible way.
We believe it is better to have beautiful clothes that you wear more. That is why I have dedicated myself to creating clothes that, like Charlotte’s garden, become a treasured part of your life from season-to-season and year-to-year.
Thank you for being a part of our adventure.
