St. John is an American luxury house that was founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray. The brand's simple beginnings started when a knitting machine inspired Marie to design dresses for herself. A fascinating coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress. Over the years, the brand has evolved, but the basis for the collection remains the same today as it did from the very start — effortless, alluring and refined clothing that appeals to women all over the world. Unique American Design with a core in signature innovative knits and an undisputed reputation for luxury and quality. St. John continues to expand globally and build on the legacy created in 1962.
