“My New Year’s resolution is to buy more Monica Mahoney dresses!”

Killer Clothes for cool kids and stylish women

Live Well

Monica designs easy comfortable travel friendly clothes for hip kids and their fabulous grown-ups. Her designs are thoughtfully cut in limited numbers from a treasure of deadstock and close-out fabrics she finds in her travels. The designs are always classic and comfortable to flatter a growing toddler and flow from one event to another no matter what age.

Monica grew up in Los Angeles under the glamour of Hollywood so she understands the stylish, casual lifestyle needed for busy families on the go. From the beach to the pool and out to the desert, her clothes are meant to last for more than one season and take you from backyard BBQ’s to fancy Country Clubs & beach fun anywhere on  the planet!

Monica learned to sew from her mother who made all her prom dresses and was a huge influence from a very young age and taught her to embrace her Mexican / Irish heritage for a colorful and creative lifestyle. Now it’s Monica’s two daughters that have become her inspiration for design as well as the life she leads traveling and showing them how to have fun wherever they go. Her designs are always inspired by her love of classic shapes & fabulous fabrics.

 After 23 years living in New York and making the East Coast her home, she is back in Los Angeles with a smile and ready to share her passion for fashion with you. Whenever possible, Monica likes to provide low cost designs for you with the help of many at home seamstresses while at the same time creating extra income for caretakers and Grandparents forced to be home with loved ones.

Monica makes one guarantee, it will all fit in the overhead compartment!


It’s a Caftan Christmas!

& a happy New Year

Later, after having 5 of her own, She would bring us kids down to Newport & Balboa sharing all the fun of the marina and sailboats and cute little bungalows & beaches. It’s such a joy for me to continue the love for this part of #CA and share the beauty with everyone! It’s such an inspiring hidden gem.

Happy Earth Day 🌏🌍🌎to all my friends out there! We must take better care of this gift! 🌎Something fun you might not know is that all my fabrics are close out & discontinued pieces I hunt & find all over the place. It gives me so much pleasure to find bits of beautiful fabric🌏that are headed to landfills or considered by others to be old patterns and designs. I love to give them new life. 🌏So keep that in mind when you see something you like in my designs. It’s only available until the bolt is gone! Let’s celebrate how lucky we are! Thank you Mother Nature for all the gorgeous inspiration you give us everyday! 🌍Keep up the good work!🌎 #sustainablefashion #madeinla ☮️#sustainability #earthday #slowfashion

This is me in one of my fave 1970’s Easter outfits my Mom let me create on my own! I think the wool gingham pants were from Rudnicks boys dept. and I had to cave a little and wear the hand crochet vest to please Aunt Monica! ( she made it) I can remember it like yesterday because I finally was able to style my own look! Check out the rings on my fingers!!! I think I still have some of those... my Dad used to try to bring rings to my sister and me when he traveled. I’am loving the Fancy travel bag next to me that my friends @piscesistah mother is sporting! In fact, it’s Peggy Meyers bag and she flew as a flight attendant for Pan Am and We are lucky enough to live in her beautiful house now!!! This pic brings back so many happy family holiday memories! Thanks for listening and Happy Easter!!! 🐣🐣🐣🐣

Current mood is Spring! 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸The flowers & smells and overwhelming scents of all the overgrown gardens around #LA right now is intoxicating! Makes you want to dig into your pretty #Spring dresses and take a long walk! 👗👗👗 I always love this time of year but this year the Gardner’s and landscapers are really looking good! Mother Nature had their back! 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺 Patricia dress available in white eyelet (black sold out!)

My prayers are with Paris!!! Totally wrecked by this sad day! Instead of showing it burning I’d rather post the positive!! 🇫🇷This silly selfie I took my last trip to Paris on one of those wonderful days where you find yourself stumbling through the streets and remembering all the fun & admiring all the beauty! I was fortunate enough to study art history for a year in Paris in 1985/86 and one of my favorite classes Met each week in front of a different historically architectural significant structure. I can so clearly remember the day we met in front of Notre Dam and the thrill of knowing how lucky I was to have this opportunity! I was so incredibly exhausted from the late night I had dancing the night before at Les Bain’s but still so in love with Paris and it’s beauty!!! #paris
