ROUSSO APPAREL GROUP, founded in 1970 by Eli Rousso, was based on his beliefs to constantly update and improve product design, and to always be ahead of an ever-changing fashion market. Since his untimely death in 1989, the company has been successfully owned and operated by his family, Natalie Rousso, Chairwoman, and Victor Rousso, CEO.
As experts for forty five years in Women’s Casual, Active, and Weekend Sportswear, the company has maintained its fashion dominance in the market. Rousso has dominated the market place in both branded and private label manufacturing. The company believes in long term partnering with its customers and continually changing to service their needs. Rousso owns and develops products under the brands Three Hearts, Love Life Live, Garfield Marks, Activology, and Casual Identity.
In 2008 the company launched the tummy control division under the Teez-her and Slender Shapes brands. The line is a collection of slimming tops and a variety of bottoms, to discreetly enhance the body. Today the company has expanded the use of its slimming technology to all divisions.
Nanette Lepore Play our licensed division was started in 2015. This collection of uniquely feminine and truly functional active wear addresses the modern woman in her “To-Fro” lifestyle. Whether she is going to brunch or coming from the gym she will look chic in her luxury fitness pieces.
SANTA FE APPAREL: In 1995 Rousso partnered with Joseph DeGaetano and opened Santa Fe Apparel. Santa Fe creates contemporary, junior, and young woman’s outerwear on the cutting edge of the fashion industry. The product is sold under the Coffee Shop, Coffee Shop Red, CoffeeShop Kids, Latte BLACK, Grind, Mo-Ka, and Java brands.
AGI SOURCING: Rousso and DeGaetano then created AGI Sourcing as a direct sourcing company, which does manufacturing for both Wholesalers and Retailers through its offices in China and Honduras. AGI specializes in Outerwear, Knit Sportswear, and Athletic Apparel, both licensed and Non-licensed, including product for NFL, NCAA and the NBA.
SL Clothing Co: In June of 2013, Victor Rousso partnered with Lawrence Weber to form SL Clothing Co. SL Clothing owns the Susan Lawrence brand and creates knit and woven tops for the casual and career markets. Today the company specializes in Private Label, partnering with its customers by creating product in tandem with their design and development teams.
