Mary J Maalouf

Mary is a Miami designer with a great knack for colour and form. After doing her schooling at the New World School of the Arts in Miami she honed her techniques while working at a high-end clothing shop, where she developed her skills in pattern drafting, garment cutting, clothing construction, fittings and alterations.
I'm not surprised I'm so drawn to her work, as she shares my love for Japanese fabric (paper for me!) design and combining colour patterns to create new and visually exciting works.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and that is true with the origins of her business. She couldn't find the purse of her dreams, so she created it, and thankfully hasn't stopped! Every one of her purses are one of a kind, so you know you have something totally unique!
