We began as two small Baltimore, Maryland neighborhood boutiques – The White House, opened in 1985, and Black Market, opened in 1995 – both founded for and run by women. The vision for each was to be a special, personal style destination for women everywhere.
In 1997, the two stores became one and White House Black Market was born. Our vision remained the same as before, as did our commitment to offer unique, individual collections that delivered both style and quality (substance).
White House Black Market has grown since then, and celebrating and supporting women continues to be our mission. In boutiques and online, we are dedicated to providing a modern collection for the way women live now, so they can be their best selves.
Although named for the simplicity of black and white, our curated collections always reflect the latest colors, prints, and styles. Our expert stylists are always there to transform a closet, style the current trends and most importantly, are committed to helping each woman create her signature look. It is with pleasure that we offer these personalized services.
Elevated Style and Quality.
Perfect Fit. Great Price.
Who Says You Can’t Have It All…
IT’S REAL FASHION BUT CRAFTED LIKE COUTURE
From sketch to prototype to final product, we craft our pieces with the same approach as the world’s
design houses. Our onsite design studios give us the edge—there we create curated collections in the
highest quality fabrics with intricate details and a tailor-made feel. The only thing missing is the
designer price tag.
IT’S PUTTING TOGETHER YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE
Work, weekend, whatever—each piece in our collection is designed with versatility in mind. Our
expert stylists will show you how to get more mileage from everything you wear. Plus they’re always
here to help with not only transforming your closet and tracking down that one elusive item but also
being available before or after working hours because we know that more time is priceless.
IT’S A FIT THAT’S FAR SUPERIOR TO OUR COMPETITORS
We take fit seriously. Our collections undergo a series of rigorous tests to ensure the fabric fits real
women’s bodies. Each piece is worn, washed and tweaked to perfection—from seam to hem to
hardware—no detail is overlooked. The end result is clothing that moves effortlessly with women’s
on-the-go, multifaceted lives.
IT’S A PRICE THAT SURPRISES IN A GOOD WAY
We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality for price. Value is a given with everything we do.
Case in point, 90% of our collection is machine washable. It’s the price we pay to give you what you
