“Everything is better with lashes and lipstick”
Margaret Josephs is instantly recognizable with her infectious smile, big lashes and trademark blonde hair, worn in pigtails, earning her the nickname "Powerhouse in Pigtails".
Margaret graduated from FIT, NYC with a degree in Marketing and Fashion Design and worked at the heart of the infamous New York Garment Center as a dress designer. It was here Margaret’s love of fashion and print developed and her desire to launch her own label began. She literally launched her line, Macbeth Collection by Margaret Josephs, from her kitchen table. Since it’s inception in 1999 with a capsule collection of home accessories, the company has since grown into a global lifestyle brand.
In 2015 she introduced Candie Couture by Margaret Josephs and then in 2016 House Candie by Margaret Josephs brands to her portfolio as sister brands to her wildly successful Macbeth Collection. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of her launch and she celebrated by adding a signature clothing collection under her namesake label, Margaret Josephs and looks forward to introducing a jewelry collection this Fall 2019. Her belief is that everyone deserves a little fabulosity in life and makes it her mission to bring her devoted followers fashion forward products that embody the term “Luxury for Less”.
Margaret Josephs is a true entrepreneur and her growing stable of brands, all of which are an extension of her personal style, fully embody her mantra “Caviar dreams; Tuna fish budget”. This concept resonates with all inspiring entrepreneurs and she looks forward to expanding this concept in 2020 to a podcast and delivering that message through seminars to her loyal fans and budding business moguls.
She joined the cast of the top rated Bravo show Real Housewives of New Jersey in 2017 and instantly became known for her quick fire one liners and no nonsense approach. She is truly enjoying the ride and looks forward to more adventures with her Jersey Girls!
Margaret is a lifestyle expert and can be seen regularly on network TV sharing her tips and picks for organizing, accessorizing and glamorizing!
Life is a 24/7 madhouse at Margaret’s with the team working out of her home. Her belief is that women should feel empowered in their career yet not compromised as a mother so the office is full of energy; between baby Nino accompanying his mom Lexi, Margaret’s Creative Director, to work and Marge’s yorkie baby Bella it’s non stop crazy! Whilst the team work to create new products in her signature prints Margaret is busy renovating her estate with the love of her life Super Joe (all be it slowly…and against his will). Their home is from 1906 and is definitely a labor of love but Margaret is determined to have a real closet by 2020! And as if tackling a challenging renovation isn’t enough the couple are constantly attempting to tame her mom; Marge Sr who has a reinvented herself the modern day working girl with a big job in New York City and a sassy single attitude to match.
The Marge continues to do it all on the daily; living large as the Marge-in-Charge proving she truly is "Powerhouse in Pigtails".
