• On designing her Spring 2017 collection: "I like to think of it as dressing the quintessential modern New York woman. I never, like, climb a mountain for inspiration. It’s more about being inspired by the women that I’m surrounded by on a daily basis."

  • "I find the women that I gravitate toward and seem to be surrounded by are really modern, independent go-getters. They’re determined, but at the same time, they’re extremely feminine—so dressing that woman. I hope you will look at it and think, 'It’s a Marissa Webb collection, and it’s Marissa Webb collection of now—an evolution.'"

  • On her reputation as a #girlboss: "That’s a whole bunch of bologna! It’s all a facade. No, really, it's being balanced. I think it’s important to take those moments in. Honestly, I’ve just learned to do this myself. I used to be, full-on, just: work, work, work—and there’s a period in your life when that’s okay. Today, I think my puppies ground me. They’re my children. And my fiancé."

  • "It's making sure that you have something that you like to do that is not work-focused. That doesn’t mean that you turn off. In this industry, you’re constantly going. And it’s also really important to be surrounded by people that energize you on a daily basis. For me, my team is extremely important because they’re the ones that keep me going."

  • On what she'll be wearing this fall: "Right now, I’m so hot, I can’t think about fall! But I’m a huge fan of outerwear. That’s the first thing that I always think about when it’s fall; I’m a big fan of layers. I think that I start from the outside and go in."

  • On whether she plans to hop on the see-now-buy-now bandwagon: "No, not really. That’s a big conversation. There are things that are similar in my line from season to season, but no."
