An avid sportswoman and fashion enthusiast, Founder Maia Norman’s lifestyle and surroundings have heavily influenced the brand ethos and direction of Mother of Pearl.
Since taking over as Creative Director in 2011, Amy Powney has streamlined the Mother of Pearl aesthetic to ensure the silhouettes and detailing stay true to the sports luxe philosophy with which the label is synonymous.
Seasonally, Powney develops her own prints and continues to use pattern to juxtapose her design, solidifying the brand identity. Fusing the signature sportswear details with luxury fabrics, Mother of Pearl’s coveted pieces have gained a global cult following.
This year has seen an exciting category expansion for the brand to include a full handbag collection to sit alongside the existing footwear offer. The accessories collection features sports inspired design with a feminine twist to complement the ready-to-wear collection.
The brand is currently sold worldwide with over 90 stockists including Harvey Nichols in London; Bergdorf Goodman in New York; Tsum in Moscow; Lane Crawford in Hong Kong, Saks in Dubai and Net-A-Porter.
Mother of Pearl held their first on schedule London Fashion Week show in February 2015 after two seasons of presentations and were also shortlisted for the Vogue / BFC Designer Fashion Fund in the same year.
