Missourian Molly Moorkamp brings her preppy, polished style to Over the Moon with a collection of dresses now available to purchase in our shop! The FIT graduate, who has worked for Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta and is specialized in evening and bridal design, launched her namesake brand with her brother Sam, a little more than two years ago. Since then, her pieces have been coveted for black tie events, and she’s dressed the likes of Natalie Bloomingdale, Ariana Rockefeller, and Nicky Hilton—those last names do make for quite a clientele list. She’s also dressed our favorite financial guru @mrsdowjones, so you don’t have to have a family empire to order—although, it never hurts!
Upon meeting Moorkamp, it’s clear this woman isn’t messing around. She is put together and her statuesque vertical stature immediately causes one to gaze down at her footwear to check if there’s a heel . . . there isn’t.
Moorkamp describes her client to Vogue as “someone who isn’t worried about how many likes it’s going to get on Instagram.” These aren’t buyers who look to Kim Kardashian for outfit inspiration, get the picture? They’re looking to Moorkamp for a bit of 60s Hollywood glamour mixed with Jackie O, Carolina Herrera, and Oscar de la Renta but coming from a younger, more empowered eye. Even though the inspiration is somewhat timestamped, the clothes aim to be timeless. “I hope to be the destination for beautiful, attainable luxury clothing that actually fits real women,” she says. Her direct-to-consumer model allows her business to be more intimate and personal, and she’s proud of the women who wear her designs. “I think my biggest accomplishment so far is my amazing clientele,” Moorkamp says.
For our shop, MM offers spring dresses in mint and coral and in two different floral patterns. The label also has five bridal looks, with silhouettes taken from her most popular pieces. The short dresses are ideal for any woman looking to add classic styles to her wedding day or everyday wardrobe.
More of a brick-and-mortar shopper? No worries, MM does trunk shows in different cities, so keep an eye out for those announced on her Instagram. If you want more of a couture experience, Moorkamp also welcomes custom orders.
