Mary Alice Malone
CO-FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Mary Alice Malone was born and raised in the heart of the Pennsylvania countryside. A talented horse rider, she was selected for the Junior Olympic Equestrian Team at an early age. Soon, however, her desire to create grew too loud to ignore and she enrolled in art school in Colorado.
Engaging in the various processes of furniture design, from welding to carpentry and upholstery, Mary Alice found her skill in her hands – and eye – settling into her vocation as a ‘maker’.
This talent and craftsmanship came to rest in the design of shoes, and Mary Alice’s own interest in this oft-fetishised and revered icon of the woman’s wardrobe. She honed her craft at Cordwainers at the London College of Fashion and continued to develop her skills at a number of renowned ateliers, before launching her own label.
