In 2008, Hoffman launched her first collection of swimwear. What started as a capsule collection in her Spring/Summer 2009 runway show for New York Fashion Week, has grown into two additional seasons for the Mara Hoffman brand: Resort Swim and Spring Swim. Along with swimwear, Spring, Fall and Resort Ready-to-wear lines include a distinct collection of dresses, pants, tops, coats, and knits. Mara Hoffman shows her line both at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York for the Fall & Spring RTW as well as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami.
In 2011, Mara Hoffman was honored to be inducted as a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America. Concurrently, the Mara Hoffman line experienced a record setting year of growth. Now carried by the top retailers around the world and coveted by numerous A-list celebrities, the Mara Hoffman brand continues to expand, while Hoffman herself continues to stand at the helm, guiding her designs with a passionate vision and courageous heart. Hoffman lives in Brooklyn with her husband, artist Javier Piñón, her son, Joaquin, and her dog, Gypsy.
