Marley Wentworth

The Collection

From our legendary Tyler Wentworth collection comes the first of the new generation-Marley Wentworth! As a fashion blogger and style icon, Marley sets the standard of contemporary chic.

Did you think you’d heard it all from the Wentworth family?

In 1999, a young, inexperienced Tyler Wentworth took over the House of Wentworth from her Great Aunt Regina. The luxurious collection Tyler showed her first season immediately made her a fashion design star. Marley, Tyler’s younger sister, also showed an interest and a talent in fashion design. But it was Marley’s keen eye for fashion missteps that developed very early, whereas Tyler learned the hard way. At the fall fashion show Marley, just 12 years old at the time, suggested Tyler not show a series of cropped coats, saying “they just don’t look right.” Tyler responded with a typical big sister dismissal and showed the coats anyway. However, she learned her lesson when Fashion Design Weekly reviewed the line and wrote:

”The otherwise flawless line was disrupted by those cropped coats. One question—what was she thinking?”

It was then that Tyler learned to listen to her little sister. She always took for granted that Marley would someday join her and co-design the Wentworth brand. However, Marley had other ideas about her future. She chose not to join the family business.

Having the taste and passion for great design plus a talent for writing and critique, while still in high school (Manhattan High School for the Arts,) after class Marley started blogging about fashion and style. She blogged about such topics as how to find the most unique styles for proms and dances. Those early writings caught the attention of Tres Chic Magazine. By the time she was a junior Marley began an internship with the magazine. Shortly thereafter she was offered a job. But after much careful consideration, Marley decided it wasn't for her. She really didn't want to follow someone else’s lead with her writing. It was the best decision she could have made. Within two years Marley became one of the most followed fashion bloggers. But that wasn't all. Because of her classic beauty and poise, she was asked to become the on-air talent for Fashion Design Weekly, covering all the red carpet events.
