Welcome to J'envie
The company was founded in 1978 by Eli Goldstein, and the Garment Industry then was quite different than it is today. From 34th Street to Times Square, and from 5th Avenue to 10th Avenue, every building was filled with companies that manufactured apparel in every category. As more and more apparel manufacturers began to produce offshore, this area known as the "Garment Center" has drastically changed.
Eli was extremely talented in every aspect of quality apparel manufacturing. He wanted to create a company that produced top quality basic items that fit well, and were comfortable. For many years, the company grew, and continued to thrive. In 1989, Eli's daughter, Linda Sherman, joined the firm. As other manufacturers in the industry attempted to produce the same concept, Eli and Linda realized that they had to reinvent their line, and set J'envie apart from the others. Women's lifestyles were changing, so Eli and Linda knew they had to change with "her". They came up with a very simple formula: Today's woman wants to look modern, updated, and stylish, reflecting all of the latest fashion trends, but she still wants her clothing to be comfortable and have exceptional fit.
J'envie is very focused on these concepts, and the needs of our customer. We realize that versatility is the key to our success!
In today's fashion world, where great items are the foundation of every wardrobe, J'envie has become a very important resource. Eli has been retired for many years, but Linda continues to run the company based on his principles. In 2001, Linda brought in designer Kristy Nelson to add an even more youthful perspective, and to give a "fresh eye" to the collection. They have achieved a great balance, and work together as a formidable team to maintain J'envie as the success it is today.
J'envie offers unique fabrics that are imported from Europe and Japan, and are specifically designed for our collection. Also, based on the tremendous success of our knitwear, we have recently opened an entire knitwear collection.
Today, almost 32 years later, J'envie is still a "close knit", family run business, and we continue to thrive. We continue to address a specific niche in the market. The collection is still manufactured in the USA, which is a great source of pride for everyone associated with J’envie. Thanks to all for your many years of loyalty and support!
