Designed for Women by Women
At the heart of each garment is a commitment to make desirable fashion for real women that lasts beyond a single season and become cherished items in a woman’s wardrobe. Imbued with warmth, joy and a very particular understated style, we design to make women feel good about themselves.
Since the beginning, and as a result of the company’s commitment to the local economy, the Zero + Maria Cornejo collection has been largely produced (84%) in the heart of New York City’s Garment District with the exception of a few categories including shoes and knitwear which are made by small, independently owned factories in Italy, Bolivia, Peru and China.
We aim to design and manufacture in the most purposeful and beautiful way and to create a product that is uncompromising in its respect for quality and value. Dedicated to fostering a company ethos that is just as committed to its social impact as its environmental, we use ecological and sustainable fabrics wherever possible. And as a company owned and run by women, the team continuously looks to develop special collaborations with women artisans around the world.
We are committed to fostering a positive work environment that creates a strong, unified organization that supports our team in developing careers that are rich, meaningful, and respectful of family and personal life. We work to deliver a product and an experience in the showroom and in our stores that is inspiring, honest, friendly and knowledgeable.
