Born in Korea and raised in the United States, Marissa Webb has always had an intimate and creative relationship with fashion. Her design aesthetic blends and juxtaposes elements of architecture and nature by mixing highly structured, tailored pieces with whimsical softness and flow. Marissa studied at FIT and flourished at J. Crew, where she remained for over a decade serving in various design roles including Head of Womenswear and Apparel Design.
Spring 2013 marked the highly anticipated official launch of the Marissa Webb label, an endeavor that exemplifies Marissa’s individual style and personality. Having grown up as a tomboy, Marissa embraces a playful feminine elegance in her designs while integrating a cool masculine edge. The collection is designed to appeal to the woman who appreciates timeless fashion but maintains the confidence to incorporate contrasting and unexpected pieces.
Marissa Webb’s debut collection was immediately picked up by Barneys New York as an exclusive retailer for the first season. In February 2013 Marissa Webb showed her second collection for Fall/Winter 2013 with a presentation at the Tents at Lincoln Center. With her second collection she continued to evolve her exploration of the contrast between masculine and feminine, as classic haberdashery with a modern and chic twist set the tone for the season. In March 2013 Webb launched her own e-commerce site offering a wide range of the collection and it is currently the sole retailer of Marissa Webb footwear. Marissa Webb is available at Barneys New York in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, San Francisco, Chicago and Japan, Steven Alan in New York and San Francisco, Gretta Sloane in Oklahoma, Zoe in New Jersey, Alothman & Tabiat in Kuwait and V2K Designer in Istanbul.
“The MARISSA WEBB woman is confident, unique, and, most importantly,
has a strong sense of her own personal style.”
