Marika Vera was established in 2010 as a luxurious lingerie brand, designed by stylist and fashion designer Marika Vera.
– My hand made silk lingerie was sold in small boutiques in London, LA, NYC and Sidney since season one. However I continued to work in the advertisement industry as a fashion stylist and thought of the brand as a passion hidden by a hobby. –
– In 2014, after 4 years of half being in the business, I decided to grow the brand by launching a more accesible and comercial line of timeless designs of lingerie and bodysuits, that proved to be an amazing success in the Mexican Market specially in Mexico City.
My designs are made for the modern woman of today who has a natural sensuality. I believe that femininity and female empowerment can work hand in hand -.
Our design process takes place in our Atelier and showroom located in the heart of Mexico City. The production is made 40% in house and 60% in well paid small run family businesses around the city.
– I personally pay special attention to the softness of the textiles I choose always follow a delicate and minimal line of design, without compromising the erotic element of the garments. I only chose high quality fabrics and trimmings. For me, team leadership, stubbornness, innovation in design, quality, fit and fast response to a customer demand, have being the key elements for the company success -.
