Mia Maria is a project developed by Mônica Marques.
After studying fashion design at Faculdade de Arquitectura de Lisboa, Mônica quickly got involved with the craft of designing and making clothes for babies and kids.
The clothes’ small scale, the kindness shown by children and their playful way of living, the use of colours and the dreams they represent made her deeply passionate about this art form.
Besides collaborating with different major brands, she is also currently focused on showing her own original designs and the results from her passion for children wear.
Although she has been working into Mia Maria for a few years now, locally, in the little town of Cascais, she wants to take her designs to a wider audience and to express herself through successive creative collections.
Mia Maria Kids’ website displays the collection and the special designs she has created to make it easier for people to get to know her work and to easily dress their kids with love and care.
Mônica creates every clothing piece next to the ocean and nature, in a little studio, using the surroundings as a source of inspiration. Giving preference to natural materials and sourcing from local suppliers, her designs aim for a sustainable production and a careful approach to every part of the creation process.
