The Natori Company is a women's fashion designer and manufacturer based in New York. The company sells lingerie, sleepwear, loungewear, ready-to-wear, underwear and other high-end women's fashion to upscale department stores in the US, and to at least 15 countries internationally.[1] In addition to women's clothing, the company is also in the home furnishings industry, and recently signed a licensing deal to sell Natori perfume.[2] Natori also started a limited men's line in 2006.

History

The company was founded by Josie Natori, a native Filipino. After starting her career on Wall Street at Merrill Lynch, where she rose the ranks to become the first female Vice President in Investment Banking,[3] she decided to pursue a childhood dream of being an entrepreneur. After considering a number of other entrepreuneurial ventures from opening a McDonald's franchise, to reproducing antique furniture, she settled on fashion after a buyer at Bloomingdale's suggested she lengthen some peasant blouses sent to her from her native Philippines. The altered garments were sold as nightshirts.[4]

The Natori Company Today

The company celebrated its 30th anniversary in November, 2007, with a dinner that was attended by CEO's and top executives of the company's main upscale vendors, including Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale's.[1] Natori has expanded its product offerings, and in May 2008, signed a global fragrance licensing deal with Parlux Fragrances. The perfume is set to debut in the US in September, 2009, with international distribution to follow.[2] The company also launched Natorious, a new ready-to-wear line in the fall of 2008, expanding the company's apparel footprint beyond its traditional lingerie, loungewear, sleepwear, and underwear.
