Company Overview:

Rebecca Taylor is a womenswear brand inspired by beauty in the everyday. With an emphasis on signature prints, dimensional texture and modern nostalgia, the collection cultivates a look of romantic fragility with a sophisticated edge. Every Rebecca Taylor piece offers a carefully crafted silhouette that feels essential, set apart by distinctive detail that captures the imagination and elevates the art of dressing for every occasion.

Born and raised in Wellington, New Zealand, Rebecca's design aesthetic grew from both the idyllic landscapes of her native country and her time immersed in the feminine-cool chic of London and Paris. When she arrived in New York City she built her international brand around an intuitive sense of the timeless beauty and modern versatility women look for when they dress.
