Suzanne Rae is a Brooklyn-based women’s ready-to-wear line inspired by and made for the progressive and modern woman. Both feminine and feminist in philosophy, the pieces are minimalist in aesthetic and relevant in functionality. With social awareness and sustainability as a part of the company’s foundation, they always apply a careful consciousness while creating clothing for the gentlewoman.
All of Suzanne Rae’s garments are produced in New York City’s Garment District. With local production they are able to uphold their code of conduct, including proper wages, working hours, and work environment. Producing locally also reduces energy consumption, by way of decreased transportation and resources, thereby decreasing their carbon footprint.
Suzanne Rae is involved with several women’s groups around New York City. The company has worked with Girls Inc., a leading advocacy organization focused on providing mentorship, education and a voice for young women around the country; and, WIN a transformative homeless shelter for women and their children that provides a holistic solution of safe housing, critical services and ground-breaking programs to help women regain their independence and succeed on their own. Suzanne Rae is continually looking for more opportunities to empower women to think for themselves and make thoughtful choices about their futures.
