Mara Girone

Owner at Mara Girone Simple Sophistication
My passion for the beauty and diversity of our world has taken me from my beloved Italy to Mexico to Portugal then Greece, to working and raising my family in London. I fell in love with hand-embroidery at the age of 8, and returned to this art regularly throughout my life. After completing my degree in Italy I worked in publishing across the world, eventually founding and managing my own publishing house. I was living in Athens when I turned to handembroidery again. I moved to London in 2017. and took a leap of faith jumping with both feet and a full heart into this adventure of empowering handembroidery. I create bespoke and ready to wear hoodies and t-shirts embellished with handembroidered flowers, patterns and motivational words designed to inspire women to face the world with confidence and authenticity. My pieces speak to the contrasts in our lives and denote edgy femininity and elegance coupled with energy and joy. For me, creating my pieces is like being in a dream state… through them I aim to translate what I passionately feel when I delve into my imagination, bringing it to reality and offering it to you as a tangible piece of a daydream.
