The focus on her brand as Maria Soromenho speaks it:
A clothing brand that is music and art conscious. Has the aim to collaborate with artists specially musicians. Each piece is different and unique. An experiment of materials and different textures. Experimental yet wearable. Each piece has a story, a song and a name. Fashion to communicate, give identity and to turn a lifestyle into a look that can be translated in clothes. An aim to shape a generation and dress the agitators. Not just about the clothes alone but how people dress them.
