Maria Grachvogel founded her eponymous label in 1991 with a collection of nine dresses. Showing for the first time at London Fashion Week in 1995, Grachvogel’s modus operandi has always been to design for real women; she is known for her wide-legged jumpsuits in vibrant prints and elegant, modern dresses in floaty, sheer fabrics. Speaking before her S/S13 show last year, Grachvogel said, “I design for a strong, confident woman who has a strong sense of her own personal style.”- less
