How to Dress for Success from Head to Toe!

Martha Slagle, Vice President, General Manager Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie

As a 4th generation Washingtonian, Martha Slagle is Washington, DC’s resident fashion authority in the luxury retail industry. Martha was named Washingtonian Magazine’s “Retail Powerhouse” in April 2012 and continues to be frequently consulted about luxury fashion industry trends and is often quoted in many publications including Capitol File Magazine and The Washington Post.

Martha Slagle is currently going on her twenty-third year as Vice-President, General Manager of Neiman Marcus Mazza Gallerie in Friendship Heights. Her top clients (including a few former First Ladies) have given her the nickname “Martha 911” because they know who to call to rescue them from any last minute fashion emergency! For a taste of Martha’s fashionable 9 to 5, follow her on Instagram @marth911.

Martha began her career in luxury retail in 1970 with Garfinkel’s where she was a buyer for Cosmetics and Dresses; she later was promoted to her first role as Store Manager. After 12 years at Garfinkel’s, Martha continued her passion and skill for managing luxury stores and worked for I. Magnin as Vice President, General Manager for over a decade at White Flint Mall in Kensington, MD.

Originally from Bethesda, MD, Martha majored in Merchandising at Marjorie Webster College where she received the Merchandising Department’s award for “Most Likely to Succeed.” She currently lives in Silver Spring, MD with her husband, Tom, of 46 years. Martha has two sons, Theo and Patrick, who both have successful careers in local commercial real estate. Martha has one grandpuppy, Zoey, and could not be more thrilled to be welcoming her first grandson this August.
