Zero + Maria Cornejo

Chilean-born creative Maria Cornejo moved to England as a political refugee as a child. In 1996, she and her family moved to New York where just two years later she opened the atelier and storefront known as Zero + Maria Cornejo. Starting with upcycled materials, Cornejo explored garment construction with geometric forms, using simplistic cuts that yielded sophistication and flattering fits. This timelessness, ease, and strikingly modern perspective offers a refreshing take on luxury womenswear.
