Maxine Trowbridge

An avid contemporary art enthusiast, Max served on the board of Dallas Contemporary for almost a decade — recently completing a two-year tenure as president of the board. Actively involved in philanthropic work within the Dallas community, Max also served twice as gala chair for MTV RE:DEFINE, an annual art auction hosted by The Goss-Michael Foundation benefiting the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary.

Max began her career as a designer, after studying fashion design at the London College of Fashion, and working for British fashion house Mansfield in the early ’90s, a collection coveted by Princess Diana and Princess Anne. Upon her arrival to the States, she segued her fashion and luxury career into media working at Ocean Drive magazine in Miami. After moving to Dallas with her husband Ben, Max founded online fashion magazine PinkMemo.com in 2007, an early pioneer in the digital content and influencer space with editions in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas. With the debut of national luxury publication Du Jour magazine, in 2012, Max contributed as the Dallas editor, thereafter shuttering her business and joining the team at PaperCity magazine as Dallas editor-in-chief and group director. After a two-year tenure, Max changed her role, and now serves as editor-at-large, and works on art and fashion projects under a new business venture — artrinity.

Having grown up in a rural part of Arkansas, I watched JR and Sue Ellen on tv and dreamed of a more glamorous life. After graduating, I quickly moved to the BIG city of Dallas where I attended Tony and Guy hair academy and began my career at Jose Eber where I had the privilege of doing Linda Gray’s hair which solidified I had arrived! I then married fashion, art, and hair with a job at Neiman Marcus - the iconic luxury retailer - where I worked for over 20 years. I had the opportunity to do such celebrities as Lady Gaga, Farrah Fawcett, and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders plus styling for Carolina Herrera, Vivienne Tam, Oscar de la Renta, and Kate Spade to name a few. During this timespan, I appeared on CMT’s “Making of the Team” for 10 years, ESPN’s “Making of the Calendar” for 3 years, Bravo’s “Most Eligible Dallas” as a season’s supporting role, Lifetime’s “Project Runway” as a guest judge, and most recently my own show for Lifetime TV “Million Dollar Shoppers”. I’ve chaired countless fundraisers for fashion, art, and animal safety! I currently still love to be in front of the lens as I am working on a new tv project, and work at Era Salon which is the ultimate in luxury beauty services in the metroplex. Despite my crazy schedule of attending shows around the world, art summits, and charitable events, I still find time to expand my own art collection with pieces from Marilyn Minter, Mr. Brainwash, David Lachapelle, and Damien Hirst to reference a few. My personal curation of art evokes a sprit of playfulness that is sometimes a little moody and often times shocking, but I believe in buying things you love so you can enjoy for a lifetime.
