About us: 

The Marilyn Tov collection began as a high end line for girls ages 2 to 8 years old in 2006 when I moved from Paris to New York. After years of customer requests for pieces in adult sizes, we began designing and producing a women's line in the fall of 2012. What began with just a few styles quickly became a full collection for Spring/ Summer 2013.

At Marilyn Tov, we have been devoted to supporting local workers and the local economy by manufacturing in New York City from the line's inception. This has come at the price of lower margins, but we are passionate about maintaining the quality of the line while sewing our Made in the USA labels with pride into each of our handmade garments. We believe in celebrating American labor and revitalizing a manufacturing economy here in the United States. 

By shopping on our kickstarter page, you will get us closer to our goal and

(1) You will support American manufacturing. Help us make keeping jobs in the United States a reality. This includes employing our pattern makers, cutters, graders, sewers, hand knitters, and supporting local trimmings stores and fabrics showrooms. 

(2) You will support a local business. Because of the continuously rising cost of fabrication, we need to set up a small factory to maintain local production without sacrificing the quality of our pieces, but it has become cost prohibitive to continue to outsource all of our production. 

(3) You will help us to grow our collection into two lines: Casual and Special Occasions. Currently, Marilyn Tov is special occasions focused. With your help, we hope to create an affordable everyday wear line. The line would be primarily cotton jersey knits and liberty prints. In order to lower the cost without sacrificing the quality, the line will imply simpler shapes -- but always with our signature Marilyn Tov twists added. 

Our Special Occasions line will be dedicated to parties, birthdays, baptisms, holidays, and weddings. Delicate French laces, blends of cotton and silk, noble fabrics, ruffles, pleats, hand knts, french seams will adorn this beautiful collection. We will also have exclusive pieces produced in limited quantity. For the first time, we will open our new studio to our clients with custom needs, like dresses for flower girls, bridemaids, or any other special events. Marilyn Tov is always honored to be a part of your special moments.

Risks and challenges

Marilyn Tov has been in the industry for over 6 years.
I have been through the whole process from designing, producing and selling a collection twice a year- that makes it 12 collections so far. I have all the contacts I need from fabric showrooms to manufacturing. Everything is in place, we are only waiting for your orders! There is no worries to have about producing and delivering the rewards.

Regarding the project itself, we will follow the business plan that has been written to make the best out of your donations and take this project to the great success it is destined to.

As any projects there are challenges. Ours will be to find the right studio space at the right location within our budget. This is the only thing that could delay the project after we get funded. We have already sourced the materials we need from sewing machines to pattern making tables at half the regular price. We will only need to order them and have them delivered.

At Marilyn Tov we are very organized and want to make all our backers proud! so we have started working with a broker and are looking at spaces on free times. Hopefully on the day we get funded, we will have the lease ready to be signed! :D

Please know that I sincerely appreciate your generosity. I take this as a lifetime opportunity and I will not disappoint you.
Thank you so much for believing in this project, in my work and in me...
