FAD: When you are not designing incredible clothing, what do you busy yourself with?
Marcia: I love traveling, walking and exploring. On weekends, I can often be found browsing farmers’ markets. I have a green thumb and I’m always on the hunt for new plants. I also try to keep healthy through clean living with natural, organic products, home cooking and I practice yoga when I can.
FAD: If you had to describe your brand in three words, what would they be?
Marcia: Minimal. Luxe. Texture.
FAD: Complete the sentence: I think fashion is….
Marcia: A personal expression.
FAD: Describe your personal style.
Marcia: Simple, comfortable pieces that are menswear-inspired. Mostly monochromatic with a metallic accent or a pop of contrasting color.
FAD: What are some of your personal favorite pieces in your wardrobe?
Marcia: I have two pairs of jeans that are on their last thread, one from Levi’s and the other from APC, and a Helmut Lang coat that I won’t give up. I also have a pair of Common Projects high top sneakers that are almost worn to the ground but I love it so much. And of course, I have a few M.Patmos cashmere pieces on rotation at all times.
FAD: We're celebrating NYCxDesign in May. Name one designer/design that you've been inspired by and tell us why
Marcia: The David Weeks Studio and Moroso M'Afrique collaboration. I love the fun colors, the technique and the concept of handmade artisan craft interpreted in modern, useful shapes.
