Mara Hoffman was born in Buffalo, NY and is now based in New York City, creating collections season by season, delivering a colorful array of prints and interesting silhouettes. She manages to bridge the gap between hippie cool and contemporary fashion and always has her signature prints present in her collections. Her designs have worldly influences and a flair for fantasy. This month we launched a special collection of Mara’s pieces that are unique and eye catching. Here’s an interview with the lovely designer!
Yesterday after an evening of spending some time with my friends who are visiting New York from London I headed to the Mara Hoffman show. Her fall collection was inspired by “Shaman gauchos”. The ultimate bohemian bombshell sprung to mind as I watched meteorite patterns, tapestry motifs, and “third eye” symbols run down the runway with a jewelry collaboration with All For The Mountain! I left breathless and with a clear indication of how exactly I want to dress for Fall 2012.
Mid afternoon I made my way to “Pie and Thighs” in Williamsburg for a quick southern bite before departing back to Philly in the snow. Tomorrow I’m back to the Big Apple to take a bite at Street Style. I’ll also be checking out the Betsy Johnson show and after party!
