Born and raised in Montreal, Maria's passion was to become a fashion designer at an early age. Driven by the desire to turn her creations into real garments she opened her own studio atelier. " What I love about evening wear is you are always looking to make something above average, something stunning, something unforgettable. You can set your imagination free; after all it is in the exquisite fine details and special techniques that raise it to the level of art." In 1990 she started her own fashion house and thus stepping in the big circle of fashion designers. She dresses the celebrities of the region and many devoted customers. She also sponsors beauty pageants where her dresses complete the splendor of the contestants. Maria designs and creates dresses from exclusive evening gowns to prom dresses to chic one of a kind creations.
