ABOUT JOHN PAUL RICHARD
JohnPaulRichard, Inc. was founded in Los Angeles by Richard Hirsh and John Paul Beltran in 1996. Bertan Kalatchi joined the company as a partner shortly after. Since the beginning, the company’s mission has been to design moderate, updated women’s apparel at affordable prices.
Fashion minded and customer conscious, JohnPaulRichard has always made it a priority to put quality at the forefront of its business. With over 20 years of sourcing and manufacturing in Asia, JPR has established lasting partnerships with the top factories in the industry.
The JohnPaulRichard line offers a full range of classifications, including bottoms, dresses, tops, jackets and sweaters in all fabrications. JPR also produces special sizes, plus and petite. Today JPR can be found in most major department stores around the U.S. under the JohnPaulRichard label as well as a variety of private labels.
In 2002, JohnPaulRichard, Inc. acquired Fever Clothing, a better sportswear line sold in department stores and specialty retailers around the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
Also in 2002, JohnPaulRichard, Inc. founded Vince, a contemporary fashion line of luxury basics. After four years of rapid growth, JPR sold Vince to The Kellwood Company.
JohnPaulRichard, Inc. is always looking for new brands and opportunities to expand in.
