Nieves Lavi is a New York-based fashion design company co-founded in 2003 by Sharon Lavi and Sam Nieves Velez. Together, the two draw upon their cultural backgrounds (hailing from Israel and Puerto Rico, respectively) to create a ready- to-wear collection that showcase their mutual love of bold prints and their talent for creating timeless, silhouettes. Nieves Lavi’s genius draping and flattering silhouettes have become versatile wardrobe essentials. The Nieves Lavi philosophy of design is to create a collection that is uncompromising in artistic design and quality while remaining modern and wearable, fuss-free and fashionable. Because of this very principle, Nieves Lavi has developed a wide fan base among international trendsetters, from New York editors to L.A. celebrities including Eva Mendes, Kelly Ripa, Sara Jessica Parker and Rachael Ray, among others. Nieves Lavi is distributed through department stores, special boutiques and e- commerce. The brand is available in 150 doors in the United States and globally in countries like Japan, Australia, France, England, Turkey and Dubai.
