The honoree for the 2022 Femmy “Generations” Award is The Komar Family! We honor three generations of the Komar family.
What began in 1908 as a small intimate apparel shop in New York City’s Lower East Side has grown into an industry leader in the design, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution of apparel. From their humble beginnings through to today, the Komar family exemplifies hard work, determination and artistry passed down though time. We look forward to their continued commitment to these values for many more generations to come.
