Dedication to creation at the highest level in producing the finest in luxury goods has been the Dennis Basso mission, since the birth of this unique brand. Expert craftsmen and artisans have skillfully worked for generations, in our New York City Studio, perfecting the art of handmade designs focusing on fashion, modernity, and innovation. Commitment to workmanship and talent combined with the most advanced techniques allow us to generate authentic, limited products of unsurpassed standards and quality.
In 2007 the company acquired and completely renovated a 30,000 square feet former ammunitions factory in Long Island City. Minutes from Midtown Manhattan, the duplex warehouse was transformed into an atelier for design, research, development, pattern making, sewing, and finishing, as well as executive offices and accounting.
Raw materials are hand selected in limited quantities from auctions and collectors worldwide, representing less than 0.1% of the entire production that are able to meet our stringent standards of quality. In house sourcing diverse materials allow us to craft each item from conception to completion, with utmost attention to detail, quality and value being delivered to our clients and assurance of service for years to come.
Our retail boutiques carry through with the same philosophy as our design studio in selecting top international locations and designing spaces with the highest standards and impeccable materials, acting as a backdrop to our unique products.
The Dennis Basso flagship townhouse sits on over 10,000 square feet and four floors in Manhattan’s most prestigious blocks dedicated to luxury fashion, on Madison Avenue in New York City. Our personal shoppers along with the concierge team will gladly help you set up Bespoke Appointments and work together with the design team and tailors for custom made-to-measure gowns or luxurious, artistic furs and make this incredibly unique experience flawless. For over 14 years in Aspen, Colorado, within the luxury hotel the Little Nell, Dennis Basso has become a permanent fixture of culture and philanthropy supporting the community. Known for its eclectic and expensive taste, this boutique offers sporty fringe furs, lavish throws and hand embroidered daywear.
After a very successful start within the most luxurious of fashion havens, Harrods in London, we have recently collaborated with designer David Collins in creating a masterpiece space of over 2,400 square feet, which is among the five largest fashion boutiques in Harrods. Here, evening ball gowns, glittery cocktail dresses and handcrafted furs are displayed in gold cages, gold leaf accents, and marble floors.
The company’s social responsibility is evident through many collaborations with different charities in New York, Aspen, Miami, California, all over the United States and Europe. “Handmade in New York City” being the house’s tag line is the core of this brand and the choice to keep production in New York City assures quality control at the highest level.
Countless hours are devoted to the development of techniques that combine different textures and materials are one of the hallmarks of the designs. The passion of the Dennis Basso team creates uniqueness in mixing design and craft leaving each product to become an authentic work of art.
