Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim 2012 has come to a close. The show produced some of the newest and hottest designers in swim for the upcoming season. One designer that left fashion goers breathless was Mara Hoffman. Her swim collection was unique and distinctive with bold large prints and colorful hues. The collection included colorful bikinis, bold and barely there one-pieces, dashiki cover-ups, beach bags and dresses.
So, who is the creative genius behind the brand? It is Mara Hoffman herself. Hoffman is a New York based designer. She received an education from both the Parsons School of Design in New York, and Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London. Hoffman’s rise to stardom was when she was approached by the acclaimed Sex and the City stylist, Patricia Field, to compliment her outfit. After their encounter, Field agreed to purchase a number of samples from Hoffman and sell them in her store. As a result, a loyal clientele steadily grew and her ready to wear collection was born.
Hoffman debuted her ready to wear collection in 2000. Her ready to wear collection has been shown in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, where her swim collection was first presented in the ready to wear’s spring 2009 fashion show. Her ready to wear and swim collections are known for their signature bright colors and distinguishing prints.
A CocoKouture favorite from Mara Hoffman’s swim collection is the pretty in pink cutout one-piece with a colorful embellishment at the center of the strapless sweetheart neckline. This swimsuit is colorful, playful and feminine. It accentuates and flatters every body type. The swimsuit pictured is perfect for the beach next summer.
Hoffman’s collection has gained notoriety among celebrities such as Drew Barrymore, Eva Longoria Parker, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Lauren Conrad, Megan Fox, and Rihanna.
