Maria Fekih, pronunciation: [fe’ki], was born to a Tunisian father and a Danish mother in 1983 in Denmark. In her childhood, she found her interest in 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. Here she studied Sample Machinist and Fashion Design.

In 2010, Maria 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 and Elie Saab.

Over the years, Maria has created made-to-measure dresses and bridal veils and experienced the demand for simple wedding dresses that was not possible to find. Thus, it became the beginning of her brand Maria Fekih.

Brides around the world appreciate her Scandi style and some has travelled far to have one. With the opening of her e-store in autumn 2018, it has become easier to serve the demand from brides worldwide.

Maria Fekih has personally dressed HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, besides several influential customers and celebrities.
