Ms. Margaret Josephs

(Fashion Designer)

About Me

Margaret Josephs graduated from FIT, New York City with a degree in Marketing and Fashion Design and worked in the infamous New York Garment Center as a dress designer. It was here that her 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 its inception in 1999 which includes a collection of home accessories, the company has since grown into a global lifestyle brand. In 2015 Margaret introduced Candie Couture by Margaret Josephs, and in 2016 she added House Candie by Margaret Josephs brands to her portfolio as sister brands to her Macbeth Collection. In 2019, she celebrated the 20th anniversary of her launch by adding a signature clothing collection under her namesake label, Margaret Josephs. She also added a jewelry collection in the fall of 2019. Margaret believes that everyone deserves a little fabulosity in life. She makes it her mission to bring her devoted followers’ fashion forward products that embody the term “Luxury for Less.” Margaret 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 is also the name of her podcast and will be the topic of many seminars. In 2017, Margaret joined the cast of the Bravo show “Real Housewives of New Jersey” 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 grateful to be able to use her platform to bring awareness to causes that are close to her heart. She featured her partnership with Brave Gowns by creating the "Hospital Heroes" gala raising funds for Northwell Health & Cohen Children's Hospital which was on season 9 of RHONJ. She was honored at the 2019 Pride celebration by receiving the keys to the City of Englewood from Mayor Michael Wildes for her continued support of the She featured her partnership with Brave Gowns by creating the "Hospital Heroes" gala raising funds for Northwell Health & Cohen Children's Hospital. In addition to riding the Bravo World Pride float in the 50th annual Pride Parade, Margaret is an avid supporter of Live Out Loud, which inspires and empowers LGBTQ youth. Another important theme to Margaret is that of women's empowerment. As a FIT graduate entering the garment center in the 90's, she was no stranger to forging her way as a strong woman in typically a man's world. After having her child, she realized she didn't want to go back to a career that would take away from time with her family and didn't support her being a mom, so she launched her own company. Margaret has never compromised her identity even when she was told she had to in order to succeed. Today, she has been featured on Fox Business News proudly wearing her pigtails. To this day, Margaret runs her company, of all women, to empower her team and help them achieve a work/life balance where the women can bring children to the office and be themselves, pigtails and all. Margaret is a lifestyle expert and can be seen regularly on TV sharing her tips for organizing, accessorizing, and glamorizing. Her belief is that women should feel empowered in their career yet not compromised as a mother so the office is full of energy. While the team works to create new products in her signature prints, Margaret is busy renovating her estate with her husband, Joe. Their home is from 1906 and is definitely a labor of love.
