New York-based designer, Maria Cornejo, founded her namesake label in 1998 with the aim to return to the basic concepts of design and construction. The result is seemingly minimalist and utilitarian clothing shot through with an undeniable feminine appeal. Known for her deceptively simple pieces, Cornejo masterfully tailors her clothing often out of a single piece of fabric, using expert techniques to cut, fold and drape the material to create her stark and sleek silhouettes. The result flows over the figure to gently flatter it. Look to Zero Maria Cornejo for highly structured pieces, prints and a polished elegance.
