“In Her Closet” is a weekly feature on the women who inspire us in their careers, confidence, and of course, style. Each week a different influential woman will be featured, so tune in on Mondays for a peek inside their closet.
In Her Closet: Ariella Maizner
Theme is a limited edition clothing collection designed and sewed by ten year old Ariella Maizner from New York City. Theme stands for The Me. In just a few short months of launch Ariella and Theme are quickly winning the hearts of major fashion influencers, founders, huge designers/CEOs and most importantly teens, tweens, young girls and their moms. She was the youngest designer in the 2019 New York Fashion Week. As Ariella is learning the business she is sharing her journey with her followers and encouraging girls her age to follow their dreams. Ariella always knew she wanted to be a designer. She started sewing at 7 years old. But she didn’t want to wait to follow her dreams. So she launched Theme for “The (dreamer in) me.” She hopes her collection and journey will inspire girls to be The (best) me they can be. She names each piece after a person that inspired her.

Your go-to outfit to wear to school: I love high waisted…wide leg, cropped or skinny. And, I always love to tuck in my tees. I totally love these new jeans I got from Zara. I wore this the day I officially opened my new showroom. And, I love to pair it with my Theme Barry Barrette Collection. (See attached photo)
What is your “it” accessory for the season: I love to stack my wrist gorgeous bracelets. I love mixing colors with gold. If its custom made or personalized.. even better. Right now, I am loving the Goldie collection and the new Marley Collection together. #Armyparty
The one item that you don’t leave your house without: I am obsessed with my Theme limited edition Tie Dye Hoodies. They come in three color ways this fall: Something Navy, Neon Rainbow and Sunset Sky. They are on rotation for me daily. I literally live in them and throw it over anything or tie it around my waist.
