Mary MacKenzie and her husband Alex settled in California after World War II.  There, she launched her innovative shop that would become the empire: Motherhood Maternity.  Mary became a defender of working mothers as she let women in the back door of her store so that their bosses would not learn of their pregnancies.

A world traveler, Mary circled the globe more than two dozen times.  She spoke six languages, and shared that some of her fondest memories were of her childhood in Cairo.  Perhaps it was here, she mused, that her love of fabric and fashion was born.

Called the "Dean of Designers" by Women's Wear Daily, Mary chose South Florida as her home.  Not the community where she was born or built her business, it is the community in which she chose to create her charitable legacy.
