About Us

Forty Five Ten merges fashion and art, inciting the new, the unconventional, the eclectic, and the inspired. The brand presents global luxury and emerging talent with a 400+ Designer roster across women’s, men’s, design, and beauty categories, including Prada, The Row, Celine, Dries Van Noten, Loewe, Rosie Assoulin, Molly Goddard and Sies Marjan, among many others.

In 2018, Kristen Cole was appointed as the Forty Five Ten President and Chief Creative Officer, setting in motion the next iteration of growth that included additional brick-and-mortar locations, a robust ecommerce platform, and an expansion of the retail concept with the inclusion of 4510/SIX, a platform for emerging fashion and design. Cole’s vision and leadership cultivates the potential for new concepts, partnerships, and programming across the company portfolio.

Forty Five Ten has stores in Dallas, New York, Aspen, Napa and Miami, as well as an E-commerce business. Remarkably distinct, yet united by a common ethos—each Forty Five Ten location reflects our commitment to the thought-provoking intersections of fashion, art, and design. Through revolving art installations, bold architecture, and imaginative elements, we (and a band of collaborating artists) create spaces that go beyond traditional brick-and-mortar stores. Environments for exploring, each is a part of its surrounding area, and—with gallery-like spaces, specific edits, and great service—highly experiential. In Dallas, there are three stores, one in Downtown Dallas with 35,000 square feet, one in Highland Park Village and one inside The Joule Hotel. In New York, Forty Five Ten exists across five separate spaces in the Shops at Hudson Yards, totaling 16,000 square feet. In Aspen, the jewel-box store is situated in the center of the town, close in proximity to the Aspen Art Museum. In Napa, Forty Five Ten is nestled amongst great dining and shops in Yountville. In Miami, 4510/SIX is situated in the up-and-coming neighborhood Little River and is dedicated to art, design and emerging fashion.
