"I believe in creating clothes that reveal who we are — not only in terms of personal style, but by shining a light on our values and making them visible."
"I founded Maakola to challenge the concept of beauty. From our tailors and customers I learned that a fashion garment isn’t just the sum of the parts but the relationship between the parts and those who make, design, and wear them."
Today, Maakola’s international DNA is shaped by a team of talented tailors and craftsmen. From their hands, I can witness how far my creations navigate, which gaps they bridge, and what they become. Clothes, like fibers, can build threads that we can wear or we can build. In my TEDx presentation Threads of Freedom, I tell the story of the powerful journey of a thread, a garment that turns into something bigger than itself.
"My creations are living organisms that capture hundreds of women’s voices and redefine beauty through the story they tell and the impact they have on people and the planet."
