ABOUT

STORY

Maria Fekih, pronunciation: [fe’ki], was born to a Tunisian father and a Danish mother in 1983 in Silkeborg, Denmark. At the age of 10, she found her interest of dress sketching and made her own clothes in the adolescent years. At 16, she was admitted to the fashion design school TEKO (Design, VIA University College) where she studied sample machinist and fashion design.

In 2010, Maria Fekih opened her boutique as a high-end retailer of international bridal brands after being aware of a gap in the wedding dress industry in Denmark. Each season, Maria handpicks a selection from her international colleagues to add a fashionable alternative for wedding dress shopping in Copenhagen. Among others, brands have included: Jenny Packham, Vera Wang, Elie Saab and Alberta Ferretti.

Over the years, Maria Fekih has created dresses and veils on requests and experienced the demand for simple wedding dresses that was not possible to find and thus it became the beginning of her own brand.
