For over 30 years, EILEEN FISHER has created beautifully, simple clothes designed to move with real life. Before both minimalism and sustainability became trends, Eileen Fisher had the vision of a company guided by a distinctive aesthetic and an ongoing commitment to supporting women and making a positive impact in the world. In 1984, inspired by the lasting elegance and ease of the Japanese kimono, Eileen designed four simple shapes to debut at the boutique show. Three decades later, she has turned her initial $350 into $400 million (without ever engaging investors), with more than 60 stores worldwide. And most importantly, she’s pioneered a socially conscious company while becoming an icon in the fashion industry for timeless design.

Today, EILEEN FISHER supports women through the collection, simplifying life and inspiring women to express their personal style, as well as through social initiatives such as the Women’s Business Grant Program, created to empower women-owned businesses, the Activating Leadership Grant, which funds programs that activate leadership qualities in women and girls and the one-of-a-kind recycle retail concept Green Eileen, which donates profits to support women, girls and environment.
