Designer: Marissa Webb
Show: Hawaiian Airlines presents: Runway to Runway Fashion Show
Born in Korea and raised in the United States, Marissa Webb has spent most of her life immersed in fashion. An early childhood interest in sketching, designing, sewing and styling her daily attire has carried through her life and work. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked at J.Crew in several design roles, later joining Banana Republic as the global creative director and executive vice president of design.
Webb launched her own label in 2013, debuting at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. She has expanded to designing and producing four collections per year and, in early 2013, opened her label's flagship store in New York's SoHo neighborhood. A self-proclaimed tomboy growing up, her aesthetic combines masculine and feminine elements of style to create unique, stereotype-defying collections. Her fiercely feminine designs, paired with an edge of cool-girl attitude, has a loyal following.
Webb encourages women to explore the many different ways each item can be styled. Her designs cater to the modern woman who appreciates timeless fashion while maintaining the confidence to incorporate contrasting and unexpected pieces.
