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 Accessories Design.
The Spring 2013 presentation at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week 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 created to appeal to the woman who appreciates timeless fashion but maintains the confidence to incorporate contrasting and unexpected pieces.
