Allen Schwartz began his career at the age of 16 when he moved from Brooklyn to Manhattan. He spent 20 years climbing the ranks of the fashion industry, until he decided to fulfill his passion for design and move to Los Angeles. In 1982 Allen created his own label, ABS by Allen Schwartz. ABS is a luxury lifestyle brand that focuses on delivering contemporary fashion, all made in the USA. The collection caters to the modern woman who is always ahead of the trend. As a domestically produced collection, ABS pays attention to every detail throughout each step of the manufacturing process.
The process begins in our own factory located in the heart of Downtown LA's fashion district. Allen and the ABS design team constantly collaborate on what trends they're predicting months down the line. From here the design team gets to work, sketching ideas and deciding on luxury European fabrics. The line is then cut and sewn in the ABS factory and shipped to our NY showroom. Over its 35 year history, ABS has mastered this process, while continuing to remain at the forefront of contemporary fashion.
The ABS by Allen Schwartz brand now has signature lines in sportswear, activewear, lingerie, hosiery, jewelry, eyewear, kid's fashion and scarves. Stay in touch for further updates as we develop the brand in several exciting new categories.
