Launched in 2005, No.6 began as an under-the-radar shop in the Little Italy/Nolita neighborhood of Manhattan, carrying curated vintage and European designers. Since its advent, No.6 has garnered a cult following for their handmade shoes and aspirational yet accessible ready to wear collection.
While consistently creating staples like versatile clog shoes, boots, and printed silk dresses — No.6 has expanded to create accessories, denim, swimwear, and more. No.6 takes great pride in its manufacturing practices, domestically producing both its signature clothing line and clogs. No.6 clogs and clog boots are made exclusively by hand.
Owner and designer Karin Bereson’s goal is to create pieces that can be worn over and over, and can easily complement a woman’s existing wardrobe. In her own words, No.6 is a brand for “anyone, anytime, anywhere.”
The company culture relies on having something for everyone, and creating pieces that feel both directional and completely wearable. The No.6 clientele includes a diverse mix of celebrities, models, stylists, and everyday women who delight in cultivating their own distinctive style.
Bereson’s aim is to have a brand that resonates with humor and friendliness in an industry that is often known for its exclusivity and seriousness.
