Originally born in Madrid, Maria got her degree in environmental science and quickly decided to head south and settle down on the coast.
She has been putting collections out into the world for 17 years now; 14 of those years she was developing, designing and building the brand Mala Mujer, which reached more that 300 shops in Spain and distribution across Europe.
After the hard financial crisis, Maria decided to put all the experience she had accumulated to the test, and in 2014 she gave birth to a new brand- one which not only carried her name, but also her values: respecting nature and all the people involved in the production process.
Maria believes in responsible consumerism, which is why her designs are- in essence- original, timeless, and of the finest quality. In this respect, each piece is as perfect now as it will be in years to come.
A collection with an expression of life, moving through colours, through the years, and growing with us as we become a more sustainable society.
We produce our garments in Bali and we work with small communities of seamstresses, so that we may also support their families.
1- Collection: Sustainably produced, beautiful, and elegant dresses of high quality for both day time and evening wear.
3- Swimwear: we use regenerated nylon from fishing nets and other plastic waste. We’re working together with @econyl on the "Turning plastic problems into swimwear solutions” mission.
The Spanish press has shown particular interest for Maria’s project. She has appeared in several magazines such as Elle, Marie Claire, Harpers Bazaar, Hola fashion as well as having been interviewed by Spanish Tv RTVE.
