In conversation with Maggie Marilynwith Maggie Marilyn
Starting her eponymous brand in 2016, at the young age of 22, it only took one year before Maggie Marilyn gained the notice of Net-A-Porter, and very quickly after - the world. Showing her first collection in Sydney in 2016, it was immediately picked up by Net-A-Porter. Other stores followed suit, and, fast forward two years, Maggie Marilyn is now stocked at over 75 stores.
However, her quick success and rapid rise to notoriety have not let Maggie allow her commitment to sustainability to slip. 90% of their collections are produced locally in New Zealand, with only knitwear outsourced to Italy due to lack of infrastructure. They have recently sourced completely biodegradable Complast packaging for their online orders, and are consistently looking for ways to build up the local manufacturing community.
We chat with Maggie about the success of her eponymous label, the difficulty of setting up a successful worldwide brand from NZ, and her advice to other sustainable brands.
