Marina Moscone was founded in 2016 by sisters Marina and Francesca Moscone. Born in Vancouver, Canada to an Italian father and South African mother, Marina was raised in a household surrounded by art and culture. Her upbringing inspired her love for fashion and sketching from an early age. Marina studied at Parsons School of Design in New York and spent several years gaining a wide range of experience in various roles throughout the industry.
Marina gravitates toward a tactile approach, twisting and draping fabrics by hand in her Chelsea atelier to create a softly seductive design using custom jacquards, fil-coupés and silk wools, all exclusively developed in Italy rendered in precise shapes and tailoring. A subtle tension between the masculine and feminine underpins each collection.
In April 2020, Marina Moscone produced surgical masks with her team of seamstresses at the peak of urgent need in early April. The masks were delivered directly to the ER trauma unit of Bellevue Hospital. Masks sold by the brand will benefit various relief charitable organizations such as Save the Children and No Kid Hungry.
