Here's a bit about Maria:
"I have been designing for the last five years. I started off in the plus size world as a model, but you hadn't seen my face around because I didn't fit the part for many agencies or designers. I was too short and too flat chested! I took all the closed doors as sign that I needed to open up my own door!
In October of 2012, I was lucky to meet Chenese Lewis & You, Ivory, during a brunch event. You both embraced and inspired me with such positive and critical feedback, that when I got home I immediately got to work!
5 months later, in March of 2013, I decided to continue embarking on my artistic journey as a designer and launched my site and clothing line online. But prior to, I made a promise to myself that as an entrepreneur in this field, my focus is to revolutionize the fashion world by giving every body a chance. And exactly How would I do this? By embracing plus sizes in its entirety, this meant to include models of ALL sizes. There are many bodies from straight to curvy and I design with them in mind.
This year we decided to continue making strides by including swim wear in three styles with a variety of prints!
There will be two swim releases one in April and one in June. During our exclusive party May 3rd, guests will be part of Wild Siren history as we debut our own mini runway show. They'll also get to preview and pre-order June's release of swim wear!
You can find out more at Wildsiren.com & RSVP for invite details to our Launch Party May 3rd 2014."
What do you think? I love having options; I say the more, the merrier when it comes to plus size swimwear. If you're loving what you see, visit Wild Siren for more information on the launch party.
**I LOVE that she used everyday women to model these suits. I cannot always identify with the hourglass/pear shaped models that designers like to use.
