LEVENITY Collection LLC is an advanced-contemporary women’s ready-to-wear sportswear brand which launched in Dallas, TX. Part of a new generation of young emerging fashion brands, LEVENITY's distinctive propensity is to gracefully bring together seemingly opposed elements through tailored architectural lines and what we like to describe as "texture-blocking".
The brand features jackets, coats, dresses, tops, skirts and trousers made only with the finest of materials. Our mission is to promote a lifestyle brand through our line of apparel that redefines American sportswear, by creating exquisitely made garments which invites our clients to take part in our vision of luxury.
