    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, with a degree in Marketing and Fashion Design and worked at the heart of the 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. In 1999, Margaret launched the Macbeth Collection by Margaret Josephs, from her kitchen table; and since its inception the company has 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 the Macbeth Collection. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of her launch, Margaret added a signature clothing collection under her namesake label, Margaret Josephs, and looks forward to introducing a jewelry collection. 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 is a lifestyle expert and can be seen regularly on TV sharing her tips and picks for organizing, accessorizing and glamorizing. When she’s not focused on building her businesses, she can be found renovating her estate with second husband, and the love of her life, Super Joe (all be it slowly…and against his will). Their home is from 1906 and is a labor of love, but Margaret is determined to have a real closet by 2020. Margaret continues to do it all on the daily; living large as the “Marge-in-Charge” proving she truly is the "Powerhouse in Pigtails."
