MAO Magazine was founded by Mauricio and Roger Padilha in September 2003 and has since become a standing token of New York Fashion Week.
The bi-annual magazine is known for showcasing new talent as well as celebrating icons of fashion past. Acknowledging the importance of the underground world of fashion while focusing parallel attention on what is “in” today is what makes the magazine stand out in a sea of others during the week in fashion. The visionaries in this magazine have at one time or another been referred to as such and went on to make huge impacts within the industry.
MAO is well connected within the fashion industry and produces unique and insider fashion coverage not found in any other fashion magazine.
MAO Magazine has featured interviews with Barbie, Hugh Hefner, Anna Nicole Smith, Patricia Field, Kate Moss, Debbie Harry, Carine Roitfeld, Iman, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, Karl Lagerfeld, Michael Musto, Simon Doonan, and Patrick McDonald, among others.
