A New Beginning: By M. Design
A Law Graduate with a strong passion for art and beauty, Maria Marigliano Caracciolo has maintained a creative and emotional connection with the city of Naples, her family’s hometown.
Her designs are thus inspired by the art, culture and heritage of Neapolitan imagination and savoir-faire.
That is why, in September 2018, Maria took her creativity to the next level by launching two new collections.
By M. Design is inspired by the 18th century “Italian Journey” – a cultural concept whereby famous artistic figures traveled to South Italy to experience the cultured Mediterranean area.
