Team USA Uniform Maker Launches Specialty Division in Garment District

Ferrara Manufacturing, a family-owned apparel manufacturer that has partnered with Ralph Lauren to create the U.S. Olympic and Paralympics uniforms from 2014 to 2022, has launched Ferrara Uniform.

Located in Manhattan’s Garment District, Ferrara Uniform is a new company division focusing specifically on uniforms made in the USA. The members of Team USA competing at the Winter Games will wear jackets and bottoms in the closing ceremony manufactured in New York by Ferrara Uniform.

The creation of Ferrara Uniform highlights the 35-year-old company’s commitment to expanding its uniform tailoring and manufacturing services at its state-of-the-art facility in New York City, where the company also produces for the Ralph Lauren Purple Label, the Durst Organization, and the United States Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard.

With the addition of Ferrara Uniform, the company is now made up of three specialized divisions serving diverse markets–tailoring, uniforms and protective garments. Ferrara Supply Company was one of the first federal partners to provide domestically made personal protective equipment (PPE) as part of the 2021 American Rescue Plan, and has made millions of gowns and masks in the U.S. during the pandemic for the U.S. government. The company spent months exploring product development for masks and eventually created a high filtration product that President Biden wore during the 2021 inauguration.

Ferrara Uniform is led by Gabrielle Ferrara, the chief operating officer, and daughter of founders Carolyn and Joseph Ferrara. The mother-daughter team of Gabrielle and Carolyn are an innovative force in the industry, including in the development of a proprietary custom fit technology designed to dress women of all shapes and sizes.

The company continues to grow, having recently expanded to a facility in Long Island City, N.Y., Ferrara Manufacturing plans to continue to increase capacity and hire more employees. In 2019, Gabrielle Ferrara led the launch of Ferrara Supply, the special business unit created to produce domestic PPE.
