Connected Apparel was founded on the basis of connection; the connection between past and present, family and colleagues. We are the result of CEO and owner Jay Balaban bridging the gap between his rich family history in the garment industry and his seasoned colleagues who are like his family too. While Jay, his daughter Leanna, and son Adam come from a family with more than 70 years of experience as dressmakers and designers, they are only one branch of our family tree. The Connected Apparel family also includes all of our seasoned designers, industry experts, and, of course, you.

"Connected Apparel got this dress right in every way! The drape neck and the elbow-length sleeve are universally flattering. The Jersey knit fabric is smooth and substantial without being too heavy. I own this style of dress by Connected Apparel in both prints and solids. They are my go to and travel nicely. 5 stars Connected Apparel."
