About Lord & Taylor NYC: Lord & Taylor is an American tradition. Since 1826, Lord & Taylor has built a reputation for service, for quality, and most of all, for style. By creating a unique mix of the latest trends and the timeless classics, they have become the favorite store of generations of shoppers. The windows of their flagship Lord & Taylor NYC location on Fifth Avenue have been making an impact on the New York fashion scene for more than 90 years. Lord & Taylor is not only at the forefront in fashion, but they’ve also set significant trends in the retailing industry. They were the first retailer with the vision to move to Fifth Avenue – and the first to install an elevator. They were also the first to open a branch store, the first to develop the concept of offering personal shopping services and the first to create Christmas windows for pure delight rather than selling merchandise, a tradition that continues today. And, perhaps our most significant first is that Lord & Taylor was the first store to have a woman as president. Dorothy Shaver was a visionary who made an impact on the emerging American fashion industry by showcasing the work of the American designers who truly shaped American style. Claire McCardle, Bonnie Cashin, Norell, Pauline Trigere, Luis Estevez and Vera Maxwell all made their debut in our Fifth Avenue windows. Lord & Taylor thinks shopping should be an experience – and they’re always looking for new ways to enhance that experience. Lord & Taylor is wholly owned and operated by NRDC Equity Partners. Following its acquisition of Lord & Taylor, NRDC Equity Partners has since acquired Hudson’s Bay Company in Canada. Lord & Taylor consists of 47 stores and lordandtaylor.com, an online retail site.
