Founded in 1987, Ferrara Manufacturing has built a culture centered on a passion for product and engineering.
Ferrara Manufacturing was founded by Carolyn and Joseph Ferrara. After graduating from New York University, Carolyn started a fashion production management company while Joseph worked as a management consultant. At the age of 25 years old, shortly after getting married, the couple launched a manufacturing business to fulfill Carolyn’s dream of creating the highest quality and best fitting clothes in the world.
The 13,500 square foot factory resides on West 39th Street in the heart of Manhattan’s Garment District, producing the finest tailored garments for the fashion industry’s most notable and prestigious brands. Seen on the runway in New York City and Paris, worn by American Olympians, celebrities, and VIPs around the world.
In 2016, Gabrielle, the couples’ oldest daughter, excitingly joined Ferrara Manufacturing. Gabrielle grew up in the factory and was always inspired by the people and energy. Gabrielle brings her experience from working in the technology industry to guide the future of the business. The Ferrara family is involved with several organizations within New York City within the arts and business. They are a founding member of the New York Garment Center Supplier Association (GCSA) Foundation.
Today, as a mother-daughter team, Carolyn and Gabrielle are an innovative force on a mission to dress women of all shapes and sizes in the process of developing a proprietary custom fit technology.
