NZFW17 Designer Showcase: Maggie Marilyn

Only a year and a half old, Maggie Hewitt had a passion to start her own label so she did after she graduated in 2015. “It has been such an exciting world wind so far,” she said. Now with a team of eight, Maggie Marilyn is stocked in 31 stores world-wide including Net-a-porter, Saks, Neiman Marcus, Elyse Walker, Le Bon Marche, and more.

The brand is hosting an intimate lunch during New Zealand Fashion Week and will be promoting their Resort and Spring/Summer collection. “I designed some stripes this season, they are a great time.” Having a strong New Zealand presence is important to Hewitt and she is very passionate about New Zealand’s fashion industry. “It is an integral part of the brand to keep production right here at home.”
