Madeline Marie Manning is the founder
As a little girl, Madeline dreamed of becoming a designer in New York City. She had pages of dress sketches signed By Madeline Marie. Fifteen years later she made her daydream designs come to life starting with just a sewing machine, newspaper, and her sister’s vintage fabric collection.
Madeline creates all of her patterns from scratch. She finds the most joy and inspiration from sourcing fabrics like vintage linens, deadstock textiles, fabrics from her local fabric store in the NYC garment district.
Her label's mission is to create dresses for all shapes, sizes, and occasions tailored to fit everyone's unique body.
