Hailing from Hong Kong, fresh out of Central Saint Martins, Maria Yat creates undergarments for the modern, real women out there. Maria’s eponymous label offers solutions to all of us women who are more into natural cottons; ones that embrace the body as a second skin instead of changing its form.
There are no underwires or constricting seams. Marieyat’s designs cross almost a genderless territory - underwear that permits women to entwines their bodies. “Ultimately, we believe empowerment comes from the mind and being honest to yourself, which ties into the way her imagery eschews photoshopping to show models with stretch marks, scars and all” - Maria Yat
