MIXT Studio Trucker Hats and Kerry Washington

Paper and gift brand MIXT Studio, best known for printing free-spirited patterns on Tyvek bags and totes, introduced a trucker hat for the Women’s March two days before the event. MIXT founder, Marcie Carson, has been a longtime contributor to the women’s and humanitarian movement and created the iconic design for a local group of women. What started as a spontaneous I’m-going-to-do-this-for-my-friends was met with such enthusiasm and interest that the hats are now available as a commemoration of this historical event.

Award-winning actress Kerry Washington from the ABC drama, Scandal, sported the Trucker Hat on Saturday as she appeared with hundreds of thousands at the Women’s March in Los Angeles.

MIXT Studio Women’s March Trucker Hats can be purchased from the MIXT studio website mixtstudio.com.  Hats are $18 and available in 3 colors, #mixtmoxie.


Founded in 2012, MIXT Studio is a lifestyle brand created by esteemed designer Marcie Carson. The word “MIXT” is derived from the company’s eclectic design approach, which includes a wild mix of pattern, texture and color. Marcie and her team have garnered honor and respect in the industry. She has won hundreds of design and marketing awards throughout her career and her work has been recognized by publishers such as Taschen, Rockport and Graphis. Not only was she Madonna’s costume assistant, but her resume is packed with influential clients such as Getty, BMW, Disney, UCLA, Dole, Mattel, Hilton, the Academy and Grammy awards. In 2006, Marcie was selected by the U.S. Department of Labor as an occupational expert for graphic design. Now Marcie focuses on creating beautifully designed products.

Everything that leaves MIXT Studio follows Marcie’s commitment to a clear conscience and good karma.

Timo Weiland: The Brand

The team’s first men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collection debuted for Spring-Summer 2010. The collection firmly established their romantic, yet modern edge to dandy downtown dressing. Based in and inspired by New York City, the Timo Weiland collection reflects Timo, Alan, and Donna’s personal aesthetic sensibilities and a broader desire to spur a return to the art of dressing.

Timo Weiland works with established luxury retailers such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Barney’s, and key independents like Intermix, Shopbop, and Atrium New York. Celebrities the likes of Taylor Swift, Tina Fey, Sophia Bush, and Pharrell are supporters of Timo Weiland, and are often seeing wearing their designs on the red carpet.

The designers won the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund award in January 2014. The designers were recognized for their smart, innovative Men’s design, and unique attention to detail. “The Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation is one of the first and one of the most coveted emerging designer awards programs in the fashion industry,” said Marylou Luther, Editor of The International Fashion Syndicate and a judge for the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation. “This year’s winners represent an exciting blend of backgrounds, influences and approaches that highlight the promise of today’s young designers and complement an already impressive list of winners. The words Ecco Domani are the perfect metaphor for what these awards represent to the American fashion industry literally and figuratively—here’s tomorrow!”

The brand was also nominated and one of the finalists for the International Woolmark Prize in 2013 and 2014 both. The brand was also part of the CFDA Incubator for 2012 and 2013 years.
