Maria Matis

Maria is a creative consultant for various fashion projects who got her International Business Retail Management Degree at the University of Southern California. After working straight out of school at one of the most recognized fashion houses in New York City, she wanted to learn more about sustainable fashion. She then took a consulting job working for a non-profit environmental company that has a program directed to fashion companies wanting to be more "green." This first required extensive research, and now the information has been received by a multitude of NYC's most well-known fashion designers. When she isn't preaching green to fashion elite, she enjoys writing and scoping the streets for trending styles. The Greenpoint/Williamsburg area, where she resides, is perfect for that."
