Maria Callisto is a bespoke lingerie brand that caters to young women, especially brides, who wants something handmade and personal for special occasions. The high quality and care put into the products makes it not your everyday shop, but you're go-to for special occasions. High skill is paired with innovation recycling, refashioning customers' scraps of fabric from, say, wedding dresses, into lingerie-repurposing and invigorating them.
Maria Callisto luxury lingerie is a bespoke lingerie brand that celebrates and empowers Sensuality. We aim to provide elegant designs that not only look good on but feel and appease most of our senses with touch, smell and looks. Being a bespoke brand we allow our customer to have a role in the design process by requesting specific measurements, mix and match already made sizes to give her the best fit possible and the most comfort. We also offer a Honeymoon package that will allow brides-to-be to incorporate the remnant from their wedding dress to create a keep-sake and a life time of memory in a form of Lingerie.
Maria was fortunate to discover her passion in fashion from an early age, She spent most of her free time sketching, hand sewing and DIYs. Maria studies Fashion design at college and later a Lingerie pattern cutting course at London college of fashion.
We design with Maria Callisto; our brands alter ego in mind, she is the woman we wish to represent. A woman of power and integrity. A woman that is majestic, kind heart-hearted, unapologetic and almost too good to be true. A Fantasy we aspire to bring into our mundane world.
We are constantly inspired by our environment, We live in an amazing world but sadly we as human fail to see the magic in our everyday life. Maria Callisto aspires to be very aware and transparent with our brand structure while also reflecting our values of gentleness and gratefulness for our environment. Sustainable is the main core of our brand especially with our HONEYMOON package solving a problem brides has faced for over centuries with what to do with their remnant fabrics from alteration and also what to do with that old wedding dresses tucked away in the depth of their closet.
