White House | Black Market operates fashion boutiques and outlet stores, publishes a catalog highlighting its latest fashions and conducts e-commerce at

White House Black Market began in 1985 as a single, tiny neighborhood boutique in Baltimore, Maryland. They called themselves The White House, and they offered unique, individual collections of fabulous clothing and accessories in shades of white and ivory. It was a special, very personal place...for the owners / employees and their customers.

And as they grew they made sure each new boutique would be just as special. Expanding on their original theme, they opened Black Market in 1995, and in 1997 they combined their boutiques into one concept, and White House Black Market was born.

Throughout everything, their passion has always been to make women feel beautiful. That's what they are about. And their clothing remains a symbol of who they are: the honest simplicity of black and white, and the remarkable individuality of the different styles they build from it.
