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!
