My mission was to create a platform of discovery and inspiration for pre-owned luxury fashion. A launching pad for consumers to discover the pre-owned luxuries that are found among their network's enviable closets, and for our Muses to connect their closets to a network of women inspired by their personal style and intentional approach to fashion. I sought to create a singular platform that made it easy and personal for women everywhere to shop the curated closets of influential tastemakers, all in one place. We call them our Muses.
The result was Dora Maar. Inspired by our namesake, the influential 20th century French artist and muse to Pablo Picasso, Dora Maar, we look to women whose style inspires and influences those around them. We have created a network of devoted fashion followers who believe that fashion extends beyond the runway. At the heart of our brand is a commitment not only to the craft, quality, and everlasting nature of luxury, but to the style and story of where it came from and where it will go next.
