Marfa Monthly Moodboard

Marfa Monthly Moodboard

Welcome to our latest Journal series ‘Marfa Moodboard’. Each month, Founder Georgia Dant will share a beautifully crafted mood board, showcasing her inspirations behind Marfa Stance, whether that be extraordinary women, art, interiors, or books.

Marfa Stance

Our first monthly mood board marks the end of International Women’s month and showcases an incredible, diverse mix of women past and present, that have inspired Georgia over the years.  From legendary artist Louise Bourgeois to British supermodel Stella Tennant and perfumer Maya Njie, Georgia created Marfa Stance to be an inclusive celebration of women, designing garments to make you feel empowered but comfortable at the same time. A collection where you step into the design room to pioneer your own unique style stance.  

Maya Njie

With a background in surface design, Maya blossomed as a self-taught perfumer, with her natural intuition in scent leading to the launch of her niche perfume brand in 2016. Maya Njie’s unisex scents are high quality artisanal blends, deeply rooted in her Swedish and West African culture. Combining distinctive essential oils, aromas and resins across continents, Maya’s coveted bottled dreams of nostalgia have contemporary androgynous notes.

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois 

The prolific late Louise Joesephine Bourgeois dedicated much of her life’s work to exploring powerful and deep subjects from family to death, sexuality to the metaphysical. Bourgeois was not afraid to confront the vivid and grounding realities of life, particularly from her childhood, as seen in her controversial yet emotive work. An unconfessed feminist, Bourgeois gifted the world her powerful thoughts on equality through her impressive career spanning eight decades.

Patti Smith

The multi-talented Patti Smith was at the heart of the NYC punk rock movement. From poet to musician, singer-songwriter to author, Smith became an influential conductor of the anti-establishment through her 1975 debut album Horses. The freedom-feeling that waved across New York was personified in Smith’s effortlessly undone masculine style of white shirts, unknotted ties and unfinished, layered hair.

Rupi Kaur

Rupi Kaur is an inspirational millennial Indian-born Canadian poet, artist and performer.  Her thought-provoking work touches on love, loss, trauma, healing, femininity and migration. As a 21 year-old student, Rupi wrote illustrated and self-published her debut poetry collection, milk and honey, selling over 3 million copies worldwide and featured on the New York Times Best Sellers List for over a year.  Her collections have soared her onto a global stage, now selling over 8 million copies, each translated into 42 different languages and featuring on best-selling lists worldwide.
