“Make your own curve. Don’t try to jump on the bandwagon. Pick a different route and [build] your own look, your own personality, like Lady Gaga did. We all know there are greater voices out there, but she figured it out and made a niche. That is what some of the greatest footwear designers out there have done, too.”
-Designer Stuart Weitzman tells WWD his best advice to young designers.

We're always amazed by how dedicated and hungry these young designers are, and Marialia is no exception.
The El Lay native is only 21 years old, but she's been designing since she was 15. And she hasn't had any formal training either, which is pretty darn impressive if you ask us.
Check out her video and line in the clip (above)!
P.S. The fashion starts at the 7:05 mark.
