This simple, traditional girl from Pakistan fought every oppressive restraint that held her back. A non-conventional role of a woman in society was a serious taboo where she came from. Yet she broke away from her conservative background and took charge of her future. Her first foray into fashion set the tone to redefine the future of luxury design as we know it. Armed with an education from London College of Fashion, she set out to hone her craft and make a name of her own.
When marriage took her across fashion metropolitans globally, she placed her dreams aside to raise her family. Yet the determined mother of three continued designing as a side hustle, within time stolen from responsibilities. Two decades later however, her marriage ended. Picking up the pieces, Maria chose to set an example for her children, for women held back from their full potential and most significantly – her own mirror.
She single-handedly built her dream business, creating spectacular, ethical and inspired designs. Her body of work has cultural influences from the East and the West. Her unique, custom pieces are lasting treasures, untouched by the passing of trends or time.
