Moda de la Maria, an exciting new fashion brand, takes a fresh and contemporary look at classic styles for the modern woman. Founded in 2019, Moldovan-born designer Maria Ruseva has created a timeless collection, hand-finished and crafted in London with ethically-sourced, highest quality organic wool tweeds and silks. Each tailored piece is designed to be worn and loved for years to come, easily blending in with your current wardrobe. Each piece is made with a passion for impeccable fit and attention to every detail that make this wearable collection a must-have to take you through the seasons.
Maria uses only the highest quality wool tweed, sourced from farmers and weavers using traditional methods on the beautiful Isle of Mull. Ethically sourced and organic where possible, the collection is inspired by her love of natural fabrics, British landscapes and colours. With this collection you will feel comfortable and elegant in clothes that fit perfectly while being durable with a touch of luxury that comes from the highest quality design, tailoring and fabrics.
For my Spring/Summer collection, I have drawn from my childhood in the countryside, and one flower in particular which seems symbolic to me of many aspects of modern life – the poppy.
The poppy is bright and beautiful, and although apparently fragile it flourishes in the harshest of conditions. This seems even more relevant in these circumstances, where the world is very different from that in which these pieces were designed, just a few short months ago. The poppy endures, as we have had to, but like it we will burst out with bright colours as soon as we are allowed.
Each piece is hand-crafted from 100% natural fabrics, using both cotton and silk to produce light and cool pieces. The poppy designs were hand-painted in our studio, giving a unique design that has been especially printed for us, making them stand out as poppies do in nature.
