“...It’s not just historic houses like Chanel, Dior, and Valentino that create couture pieces. There are young designers looking to this wearable art, designing pieces for a new generation of couture collectors with different sensibilities.
At just 23, Maëva Bezzioune created her own couture line, MAË Paris, after designing a custom wedding dress for herself. Initially a bridal line, the couture collection has expanded to eveningwear at her clients’ requests, and it now has a boutique on the prestigious Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris.”

“I have always dreamed of seeing people in the street dressed in MAË,” says the founder of her decision to launch ready- to-wear. “It’s opening the brand to a larger audience and also fulfilling my need for artistic self-expression.”
She considers that daywear offers more headway to express an everyday style. “The MAË Paris woman balances a business life with a feminine side. The collection speaks to the power of women, which is in their confidence first of all. This is how I want our clients to feel – confident and ready to reach any goal.”

“With tactile textures from silk to sequins, a monochromatic color palette, and strong silhouettes with an insouciant cool, there is not a single MAË Paris piece that I’m not utterly obsessed with.
Inspired by the sartorial power players of the ‘80s – think larger-than-life shoulder pads coupled with cinched waists – Maëva also designs with a modest sensibility. The brand boasts a loyal customer base of Arab women thanks to the abaya-like cuts and Middle Eastern-esque gowns.”
