New York-based fashion designer Mara Hoffman began designing her namesake label in 2000. Having graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City and studied at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London, Hoffman has developed a recognizable aesthetic heavily focused on prints. Recurrently drawing from nature and fantasy, Hoffman often finds inspiration from her own travels around the world. The Mara Hoffman line encompasses both Ready-to-Wear and Swimwear. Swim collections consist of playful bikinis, one-pieces, dashiki cover-ups and casual, multi-functional dresses, all in Hoffman’s signature prints and often featuring unique detailing such as beading or embroidery. The Ready-to-Wear collections include everything from flowing dresses to cashmere coats, often incorporating intricate details such as beading and embroidery.
