Maria McManus is a luxury womenswear collection founded on responsible principles: use less water, fewer chemicals and create less waste.

Maria, was born in Dublin, Ireland has lived in Europe, Japan, South East Asia and Australia, and finally settled in New York. During her many years working in the fashion industry, Maria grew increasingly alarmed at fashion’s detrimental impact on the environment and so in 2020 she started Maria McManus: an eponymous collection of meticulously designed clothing, created with the lowest environmental impact.

All materials are thoughtfully sourced from Europe and Japan, using the highest quality recycled, organic, natural, and biodegradable fibers. The emphasis is on using less water, less chemicals, and creating less waste. All production is traceable, ensuring that everyone who touches the product is treated with dignity and paid a fair living wage and the fit and quality of each garment is impeccable, ensuring a long lasting garment; an heirloom so to speak. As much time is spent on the interior structure of each garment as on the exterior.

Maria McManus has been covered by T Magazine, VOGUE, WSJ, WWD, Madame Figaro and other notable publications around the world. Our clothing has been worn by Christy Turlington, Gwyneth Paltrow, Leandra Medine, Caitriona Balfe, Phoebe Bridgers and Raquelle Zimmerman, to name a few.

Our ethos: buy less harmful, well considered pieces and wear them more often.
