Mara Hoffman is New York based designer. She graduated from the acclaimed Parson’s School of Design in NYC and also studied at the Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London. She launched her ready-to-wear line, Mara Hoffman, in 2000 and has gone on to gain critical and public acclaim for her subsequent collections. Her work is whimsical and inspired by world travel, nature and fantasy.
Go to her website to check out the video advertising her Spring line: Mara Hoffman. It’s extremely metaphysical in nature which I find fascinating. Her Fall 2013 collection was inspired by bands of traveling circuses. This vision translates beautifully to a colorfully whimsical and fantastical lookbook. I’m including ten of my favorite looks, thanks to Refinery29 and the designer herself.
I love how she remixed the traditional animal prints and psychedelic colors of the circus experience. Top Hats Off to Mara Hoffman! She is a designer I will most definitely be keeping on my radar and wish list.
