Mara Hoffman Fall/Winter 2017

Mara Hoffman Dedicates Her Show to Women Creating in The Name of Change

Eliza Jordan

16 February 2017

Mara Hoffman’s fall/winter 2017 show this week transcended New York Fashion Week with a deeper message: that the fashion industry can incorporate politics, activism, social justice, and human rights. Opening Hoffman’s show were the four organizers of the Women’s March on WashingtonTamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, and Bob Bland—helping to represent that idea. The collection that followed was meant for the women who continue to fight for equality and love.

Through a juxtaposition of structure and freedom of fabric, Hoffman used organic cottons, linens, brushed Tencels and Modals, knits, and corduroys, all made with less harm to the environment. A choreographed dance by Beth Gill further showed off the movement and free-flowing fabrics in light denim, high-waist trousers, and ribbed dresses.

Leaving her guests with a written word of inspiration, Hoffman said, “This show is inspired by the women whose songs are not yet sung, the allies, the named and the nameless. I dedicate this to the women who are constantly creating in the name of change.”
