Fashion Is In Maggy Frances Schultz's Genes
It might be early to call designer Maggy Schultz a bonafide garmento. But seams seem to run in her genes, as the progeny of a mother who was Mickey Drexler’s right-hand-woman at GAP, and a father who co-founded Urban Outfitters. Despite her parents’ Garment District backgrounds, they initially disavowed Maggy from joining the retail industry (“maybe because it’s a tough industry”) but this independent thinker pressed on, launching her first collection of pattern-focused, sharply tailored basics earlier this year. We chatted with her about launching her own line, and that time she stood up to Mickey Drexler.
