Who’s That Girl?



While in art school, my first visit to New York was by way of a Greyhound Bus. The Manhattan skyline filled me with a wonderment that was unlike any MTV music video, old movie or book I had ever read during my youth that had led me there. As a result, I have fondly called this city home since 1989. 


Stepping back a bit...

I grew up a middle class kid in Texas. My parents, a retired aerial cartographer and an art museum docent, lead by example to each of their five children. They provided us with a house of my dad’s design, filled with creativity, independent thinking and seemingly endless encouragement. 

Having a strong work ethic in combination with mentorship was taught to us at home and in school. The student council forged an admiration of community outreach with my artistic endeavors at a young age.


Fast forward to today.

I am a fashion designer by profession. This is something I have enjoyed my entire career, yet embrace many interests that always seem to keep me on my toes. With no kids of my own and an appreciation for the betterment of us all, I take a special interest in causes that assist in change and/or sustainability. My hope is to someday have a charitable foundation.  Oh wait... I do!  Check out marisoldelunafoundation.org.  I like to believe my designs are more meaningful than a “Little Black Dress”.
