our story


co-founders, lauren stephens and katherine mcgrath

in 2015, we wondered: why can’t fleece be used in a fashionable way? growing up in a small coastal new england town we practically lived in fleece jackets: whether it was on boat rides on long island sound, skiing in vermont, or on the beaches of nantucket for extra warmth, our parents had found the perfect solution in fleece fabric: warmth and comfort, all while being easy to wash.  so we decided to embark on a journey with the hope of achieving one goal: to reimagine fleece. 
dudley stephens designs and creates stylish silhouettes using fleece fabric that are comfortableeasy to wear, and that look and feel good.  
prior to launching dudley stephens, lauren stephens handled celebrity dressing and vip relations for calvin klein and gucci.  lauren's sister, katherine mcgrathhas extensive experience in sports and entertainment marketing, as well as luxury travel.  lauren and katherine's mother, bonnie dudley, has helped tremendously thanks to her keen eye for fashion and love for interior design. 
all dudley stephens styles are made in the u.s.a. using recycled fleece fabric unless otherwise noted.
