    Hi Nicole,
    I’m a huge Nanette Lepore fan and own many of her fabulous dresses. I have been following some of her interviews about “Made in America” manufacturing and just assumed that all her clothes were made in America. I recently bought the cutest sweater dress from Nanette at Nordstrom and wore it to my husband’s 30th class reunion and received so many compliments on it! I have to tell you how disappointed I was when I noticed on the tag that It was made in China:( Do you have an idea what percentage of her designs are made overseas vs. made in America?

    • hi Theresa!

      nanette founded her brand in nyc’s garment center and proudly produces 85% of her line in new york. while the company someday hopes to make that number 100%, there are still some styles that we have to make overseas to stay competitive. thanks for looking at the label! we hope that the demand for made in america creates new opportunities for us to produce here on our shores.

      i hope that makes a little more sense and i’m so happy to hear you loved the sweater dress.

    Thanks for replying back Nicole. Happy to hear most 85% of her designs are produced in the US. I’m hoping she can figure out a way for all of her production to be done in the US. Love love her company and style:)
