About Us

Our journey started in 2007. We met at the University of Wisconsin in a textiles class with dreams of becoming designers or at least owning our own store. Neither of us imagined that by 2021 we'd be doing both! But let's take it back for a minute...

In 2018 Leroy Quinn graduated from concept to completion with the help of a successful Kickstarter Campaign. The LQ Core Collection was manufactured in the United States with US-made fabrics. Having a small and transparent supply chain, the Core Collection consists of high-quality and ethically produced apparel and accessory basics. These basics are meant to be classic comfort pieces for any location and any occasion. 

2020 found us adding new and exciting pieces from other like-minded brands to our existing online store, which is how we came to be the LQ Collective. This carefully curated online boutique experience was created to support small businesses just like us, who share our same core values and beliefs. We love featuring clothing and products that are made in the United States by communities of hardworking women, BIPOC, families, and friends.

We’re so grateful and humbled that you are here.
