How did maryjulian come about?
Maryjulian was created out of a desire to design flattering, quality garments that make women both feel and look beautiful wearing them. It was launched late 2010.
I have no professional training, but I like drawing and I love fashion, so it wasn’t too much of a stretch. I like to people-watch and I find myself sometimes giving people a second look because they have a unique way of putting together an outfit, or just this cool energy about them, and I would try to figure out what they were doing right. Hence, a lot of the MJ pieces are inspired by people on the street.
How has the brand evolved?
I’ve recently revamped the website to include a “Diary” section. As a response to requests, I’ve started collecting items from my travels which will be available for sale on the maryjulian website. For now, these include clothing, shoes and bags, but I hope to bring in gift ideas and accessories for the home as well. Expect a different mini collections in the weeks to come =)
