Dr Maral Yazarloo went to India in 2004 to finish her MBA. She fell in love with the country and decided to stay back. She started working with one of the top companies in India when she started her PhD. Maral has always explored the creative fields. She started painting as a child, and has held art exhibitions showcasing her art. She moved on to designing clothes and jewellery, while in Iran, that got her global clientele. She continued the same all through her time here. On completion of her thesis and on gathering information of the retail industry in India and understanding the flavors of Indian dressing, it was time for her to take the next step. She officially launched her brand, ‘Ma/Ya – Made of Dreams’ in Paris, followed by Rome, and now in India.
Her four distinct lines represent different facets of Maral. Fusion wear is a strong point for her as she maintains the balance between modernity and culture. As she is a part of the corporate world, she knows what suits best for trendy Office wear. The artist in her brings out the colors and flowy nature in the Resort wear. Being the highest mileage lady biker in India, she knows what the biker needs, and it is evident through her Fashion Biking wear.
Simplicity and elegance has been what she abides by, in life and Ma/Ya. Her collection is a beautiful blend of Persian aesthetics, Indian tastes and Western flavor.
