360SWEATER is the story of Leslie and Bruce Gifford.
At the heart of their lifelong relationship is their love of fashion. Both Leslie and Bruce were born into the business of fashion, and both share a love for fashion and the industry that surrounds it. Leslie’s passion for cashmere lets her tap into her New York upbringing and West Coast lifestyle to create a casual, yet dramatic approach to luxury knitwear. “I get to create sweaters and accessories and can count on Bruce to bring them to life.” Bruce’s manufacturing background allows him to live up to Leslie’s expectations. “We believe we have and settle for nothing less than creating the most exciting and extensive collection of contemporary knitwear. In just three years we have created a company and brand that is an important part of today’s contemporary mix.”
The key to the company's success extends beyond Leslie's vision or Bruce's ability to implement. The company's story is a story about people. Our brand is sustained not only by our product, but by our employees, associates and showrooms around the world who understand the 360 lifestyle. 360SWEATER enters its fourth year with distribution in the finest stores in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The company, like its owners, is bi-coastal, with corporate offices in New York and Los Angeles.
360 degrees is one of nature’s magical numbers. The number of degrees in a circle. The circle is the only true shape in nature. There are no naturally occurring squares. Gravity dictates circles, whether the stars in the sky, the planet we call home, or the ring we put on a loved one’s finger.
