Mara Hoffman started her company after graduating from Parsons School of Design in 2000 by dying one of a kind, hand-made pieces out of her apartment in New York City.
Historically known for her detailed prints, the designer’s recent collections encompass a devotion to color, abstract designs, and approachable silhouettes. Hoffman, a living embodiment of her designs, draws inspiration from travel, art and the human experience and looks to celebrate the strength, beauty and power of all women.
Hoffman and her team continually evaluate their supply chain and its environmental impact, working tounderstand how the company can do better in all steps from design and packaging to the way they speak to consumers. The heightened focus on sustainable practices is reflected in pieces that live longer and can be worn more.
Headquartered in New York City, Hoffman, an active member of the CFDA, is the President and Creative Director of her independent label. Originally from Buffalo, NY, she lives in Brooklyn with her husband, artist Javier Piñon, and their son Joaquin.
