    New York Fashion Week: Mara Hoffman Fall/Winter 2015 Runway Show

    Februar 16th, 2015

    Mara Hoffman, who is best-known for her bohemian style and bold prints, showed off a more diverse side for her Fall/Winter 2015 collection at Lincoln Center on Saturday afternoon. For this collection the designer took her inspiration from the Star Wars movie which was clearly reflected in the hairstyle of her models that strutted the runway wearing a thick braided crown and long messy fish-braids low in the back.

    The designs were heavy on earthy tones such as creams, whites and camels as well as fabrics like quilted cotton and tufted chiffon which again added a hint of Sci-Fi and space vibe in the late 70’s. While the Star Wars theme was dominant throughout the entire collection, some of her more colorful creations were definitely the stand-out pieces of the show and my personal favorites: blue connector crepe strapless jumpsuit, tufted chiffon landscape gown and gold spaghetti strap tessellate gown. The majority of the designs are ready-to-wear and I am sure that especially the sexy jumpsuits and the stunning Grecian-style gold dresses will be a self-runner in the stores!

    Mara Hoffman was born in Buffalo, NY and graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City. She launched her namesake label in 2000 and has since enjoyed great success with her bohemian-style creations that are heavily focused on unique prints, bold colors and embroidery. In 2008 the designer successfully launched her first swim-wear collection and presented her first runway show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Mara Hoffman, whose designs are all made in Manhattan’s flower district, is inspired by her love for travel, mythology and nature.

    Hoffman, Mara

    September 10th, 2012

    Mara Hoffman, Buffalo-born fashion designer, founder of namesake fashion label. Established in 2000, the Mara Hoffman brand is based in New York and offers ready-to-wear women’s clothes. Known for her very colorful designs, Hoffman is possessing an unlimited passion for creativity. The designer got her big break in fashion when Sex and the City Costume Designer Patricia Field, already known for being an innovator, stopped Hoffman on the streets of the East Village to compliment her outfit. Field was so impressed of her outfit that she eventually bought all of Mara Hoffman’s samples and sold them in her shop.

    New York Fashion Week: Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 Runway Show

    September 10th, 2012

    ‘Aloha’ from New York! That’s been Mara Hoffman’s message behind her Spring/Summer 2013 collection shown last Saturday during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. A self-described city girl by birth, but island girl at heart, the spirit of the Hawaiian islands portrays Mara Hoffman’s newest collection: tropical, color-blocked and vibrant colors were seen on swimsuits, chiffon maxi dresses, skirts, safari shirts and bermudas. Interpreting the idea quite literally, Hoffman also topped each model’s look with a palm headpiece to drive home the collection’s theme.

    Overall, Mara Hoffman’s collection was a great day at the beach, with a burst of colors (blues, pinks, oranges) and gorgeous bright prints. The designer made her message very clear and delivered to the type of carefree, beautiful and stylish island girl we all desire to be at some point.
