Maxine Dillon was born in Connecticut and educated in Los Angeles, where she lives
with her boyfriend and her cat boo. 

After working for LA independent designers like Alicia Lawhon and Nathalie Saphier, 
Dillon started her own collection. Collaborating with L.A.-based Aero & Co., a store
known for supporting the best new design talent, Dillon designed several collections/trunk
shows. She was then approached by Gen Art Fresh Faces for Spring 2009. Fred Segal
and Revolve Clothing were some of the first retailers to carry the collection. One year later,
Dillon metMoise Emquies, founder of Splendid. Under Emquies, Dillon learned the ins
and outs of t-shirt manufacturing. Together they formed Stateside where she is currently
Creative Director.
