A fashion magazine labelled Maria.B as the ‘Coco Chanel’ of Pakistan -indeed the innovation and transformation triggered by MARIA.B’s entryinto the fashion industry justifies the comparison. With a designphilosophy rooted in constant change, improvement and originality, thedesigner has already become a force to be reckoned with. One of thebrightest fashion stars of the industry, she remains committed tobringing the very best to her customers without fail. She says, “I havebeen given tremendous love by everybody but my vision goes far beyondthat. I regard myself as an entrepreneur as someone who’s artisticability can be portrayed in everything that I do. Fashion is a mediumthat can speak volumes, bridge the gap between cultures, allows humanexpression like nothing else can. I am lucky enough to be in love withmy work, and I intend to use that privilege to the fullest”. Thedesigner admits that amongst all of her muses, her family remains themost important.
When Maria B graduated from the prestigious Pakistan Institute ofFashion Design (PIFD) in 1998, she had a clear idea of what she wantedfrom her brand. She wanted to challenge the status quo and bring energyand vitality to the almost non-existent designer retail market. And thatis exactly what she did.
MARIA.B started in 1999 with one retail outlet and a small stitching unit where Maria’s sole focus was to provide ready to wear fashion that reflected an elegant fusion of east and west. Today MARIA.B. is Pakistan’s most diverse designer fashion brand with prêt a porter, couture, formal wear, lawn, embroidered fabrics, linen and cottons all within one affordable label while boasting an extensive retail network with 25 outlets comprising of both standalone outlets and mall outlets in 12 different cities across the country, while also exporting to international destinations including India, UK, USA, Bangladesh, UAE and Qatar.
