Lord & Taylor is not only at the forefront in fashion but they also set significant trends in the retailing industry. They were the first retailer with the vision to move to Fifth Avenue – and the first to install an elevator. They were also the first to open a branch store, the first to develop the concept of offering personal shopping services and the first to create Christmas windows for pure delight rather than selling merchandise, a tradition that continues today.
And, perhaps their most significant first is that Lord & Taylor was the first store to have a woman as president. Dorothy Shaver was a visionary who made an impact on the emerging American fashion industry by showcasing the work of the American designers who truly shaped American style. Claire Maccardle, Bonnie Cashin, Norell, Pauline Trigere, Luis Eztevez and Vera Maxwell all made their debut in their Fifth Avenue windows.
Since 1826, Lord & Taylor has built a reputation for service, for quality, and most of all, for style. By creating a unique mix of the latest trends and the timeless classics, they have become the favorite store of generations of shoppers.
The windows of their flagship location on Fifth Avenue have been making an impact on the New York fashion scene for more than 90 years and that influence is only going to grow stronger as they continue to renew and re-energize Lord & Taylor.
They are very proud of their tradition for defining American style and they will most likely continue that tradition by continuously redefining classic with a distinctly modern edge.
The Lord & Taylor company thinks shopping should be an enjoyable experience, and they are always looking for new ways to enhance that experience. They have introduced new shopping bags and boxes, they have added to their list of customer services, and they are continuing to bring you the best assortments of the designer names you want as well as their own enhanced exclusive lines. They have made shopping easier by editing their merchandise assortments with you in mind.
