Marla's main focus is shirts with signature details such as patches in contrasting patterns. She creates both limited editions and one-of-a-kind shirts. For her limited editions, she incorporates vintage and Asian-inspired elements. Many of the fabrics are custom made reprints of vintage patterns which creates a fascinating combination of “retro” and “contemporary.” Marla’s one-of-a-kind pieces are couture-inspired clothes with hand-worked details. Her strength lies in selecting interesting fabrics, attention to detail, tailoring, and cut of the clothes.
Marla is based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
