Close your eyes and fly to the Secret Gardens of Alexander.

A utopia, a fantasy land that euphoria is the only feeling of existence! A land with never ending colourful gardens of delicate japanese flowers,
that human eye cannot gasp in one breath!!!
A land with human smiles that never will be forgotten and always watching over us. One of them, close to my heart is Alexander Boulais! My agent in Paris!
The person that with his instint believed in my work. A gentle human soul, a noble man that was always calm, soft spoken with a genunuine smile and loved his garden!

May you be the wind and the light that crosses your Secret Gardens and always be a shining star upon us!"

MARIA ARISTIDOU The finest things! The designer has been the sole creator behind the self-titled label “Maria Aristidou” & “maRis”. Her Greek - Cypriot background not only inspires her to create every season, but also helps her to explore and marry Cyprus heritage and the world! From the early years of her studies in Economics, she discovered and developed, with a great persistence as a self-learner, her passion for fashion design. Her label is inspired for the love of finer things in life - not necessarily material goods - as well as the thoroughness for detail. She strongly believe in creating designs that are wearable by today's lifestyle women with touches of elegance and luxury that at the same time are comfortable and trendy. Her love for art and craftsmanship with various collaborations along the way, always brings glamour as well as simplicity in the designs and fabrics developed. In 2015, the introduction of her Autumn/Winter 2015 limited knit scarf collection was the start of a new concept in the Maria Aristidou designs. The magic of knitwear gives her the opportunity to create and explore various knit patterns with luxurious threads and techniques. Moreover, the craftsmanship of elaborate hand-embroideries adds to the luxury of the uniqueness of Maria Aristidou fabrics for her couture evening and day wear. After two seasons in luxury Ready To Wear, in January 2017, she deputed her first Couture Collection during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week and continues to do so till today!
