Lindsey Roscoe has been designing luxury intimate apparel for over 30 years. She began working from the time Farr West was established in 1974, along with her parents and co-founders Jack and Iris Farr. After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Syracuse University in Fashion Design in 1974, she and her parents began their enterprise, and by 1979 Lindsey was the head designer and had her own Lindsey Roscoe label. She worked with luminaris such as Roy Raymond, who founded Victoria’s Secret. Under Lindsey’s direction, Farr West has designed numerous collections of intimate apparel, from luxurious robes to sensuous sleepwear to everyday undergarments. When her parents retired in 2000, Lindsey took over as CEO of Farr West.
Farr West has made its specialty luxury undergarments with a strong emphasis on anti-cling slips and camisoles. Farr West’s three registered trademarks include Farr West, with a collection of essential garments like slips and camisoles, Lindsey Roscoe, specializing in garments trimmed in high quality lace work, and Lindsey Luxe, designer silk daywear, super soft sleepwear, and garments made of stretch, anti-cling charmeuse developed by Lindsey herself.
Lindsey is not at a loss for inspiration for beautiful designs. She lives and works on the stunningly beautiful Santa Cruz coast. Her color palettes often reflect the colors found in the stones and shells she finds on the beach. All of Farr West’s lines are made to be beautiful to touch, flattering, and made impeccably. All designs are manufactured in the USA.
The “Simply Silk” line features clean lines similar to the slips worn by Elizabeth Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Farr West also has a line of soft, 100% cotton sleepwear. Other fabrics in use include anti-cling polyester, and stretchy microfiber in addition to silk and cotton.
