Coquette is an international distributor of lingerie and costumes founded in Canada. Since 1979, the company has delivered high quality collections that entail diversity of styles while captivating a realistic feminine appeal.
Originating in a small one bedroom apartment, with a single sewing machine, Catherine and Peter Horea created their first garment that they marketed and sold to neighbouring stores in the Kitchener/Waterloo area in Ontario, Canada. From that day, the strong collaborative partnership, Catherine's inspirational eye for design and Peter's entrepreneurial spirit, have been the driving force behind the now international success of Coquette. Today, the line has expanded to consist of hundreds of styles and the company has grown into a major manufacturer and distributor of intimate apparel worldwide.
Coquette has become the largest manufacturer and wholesaler of lingerie in Canada and has expanded into the international market as a major distributor of intimate apparel, serving over 64 countries.
What makes Coquette unique is the diversity of styles featured in its collections that fit any lifestyle, occasion, figure or taste. Coquette is proud to offer delicate and uniquely designed lingerie in its collections, ranging in styles from romantic to risqué.
By creating designs that have kept the company in the forefront of the fashion industry, Coquette has defined itself as a premier brand of enticingly sensual garments, being highly recognized for their unique corsets. Coquette International strives to create garments for every size and personality. The brand philosophy is to enhance the individual sense while allowing inner confidence to be brought forth as personal empowerment.
Coquette continues to unveil many new creations and services targeting specific growing trends. In a process to rebrand itself, the company logo has a new face that is simple, clean and elegant in design. This reflects the quality and attention to detail put into all of the products and promotes the Coquette image.
While pushing the boundaries of cutting edge designs and adapting to the ever changing technological advancements throughout the years, the product, order fulfillment and customer service are some of the best in the industry.
During the summer of 2011, Coquette moved its warehouse from Buffalo to Los Angeles. This move enables the company to better serve its clientele by providing more expedient and efficient delivery times. In doing so, Coquette remains true to its belief in customer service and satisfaction while remaining a strong contender in the intimate apparel industry.
