Maria Elena Pina Fonti
Maria Elena Couture, INC. Statement
At an early age, my mother opened my eyes to the world of fashion, which forged a deep appreciation of the timeless sense of self-expression through style, that transcends one’s age. This early foundation served as the seed that eventually led me to establish, Maria Elena Couture.
The Maria Elena Couture (ME) style is a statement piece from women that have a refined sense for blending functionality with avant-garde designs and a passion for color with a break from the ordinary.
My creations provide a blend of contemporary designs with a touch of the traditional to create a unique look, both in the luxurious handbag and new couture line, “Mimmo & Lola” collections. The handbags are christened with the names of icons in the history of Cuba and members of my family.
The sensuality and colors of my Cuban heritage echoes throughout my collections, giving rise to a glimpse into the vibrant cultural prism that is my native melodious Cuban culture and my dynamic American culture.
The Maria Elena (ME) collections is meant to enhance a woman’s beauty and empower her independent inner spirit.
