GIII Apparel Group Ltd

Behind every great company is an even better story. Ours began in 1956, when Aron Goldfarb came to the United States with a European master craftsman’s skill and an unwavering desire to succeed. Aron founded G&N Sportswear, and in 1972 his son, Morris Goldfarb - the current Chief Executive Officer - joined the Company. Now called the G-III Apparel Group, the Company has quickly become the world’s premiere designer and manufacturer of quality leather outerwear dresses, women’s suits and sportswear.
