Margo Hudson, owner of iconic Santa Clarita fashion boutique Margo Fashions, died Monday.
Born in Quebec and immigrating to the United States in 1960, Hudson is a longtime leader in the Santa Clarita Valley. In 1978, he purchased his luxury clothing boutique, Margo Fashions, and proceeded to establish himself as a local fashion icon.
“A trip to Margo’s store was always a visual treat because of the beautiful clothes. But time with Margo herself was a treat for the soul,” said Marlee Lauffer, president of the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation and vice president of marketing and communications for Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital. “She was a beautiful, kind, funny, elegant and wise woman. She paved the way for women business leaders in this Valley, and she helped everyone look great too! I will miss my friend.”
Hudson, founder of the first Miss Santa Clarita beauty pageant, offered her expertise to dozens of local charities, including Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, SCV Boys and Girls Club, Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and more.
Hudson helped Single Mother’s Outreach, a local support organization for struggling mothers, establish Closet on Main, which remains to this day in Old Town Newhall. The location offers free clothes to struggling single parents, while also providing glamorous dresses to loyal customers, with funds going toward free services.
Hudson passed away Monday, according to his family.
Funeral and memorial services have not been announced as of Tuesday afternoon.
