María de la Orden - Josefina Muse #45

A Parisian by adoption, María is a one-of-a-kind designer. She embodies a retro, poetic and colourful elegance. She soon began creating vintage-inspired pieces using fabrics bought on her travels. Her collections have a strong identity, with very assertive looks: bows, patterns, big collars, smocks and big accessories... She likes to dare the total look, which gives her a graceful, delicate and feminine allure. The world of Maria de la Orden has become a reference of the European fashion. She is the mother of Cosima and expecting her second child.
