TWO SISTERS – ONE VISION
MAÉST was founded in spring 2020 by the sisters Marketa and Stefanie Schroll. The collections show a fairytale beauty, which is still vivid in the memory. Every design is an invitation for women to express their femininity and individuality but as well as for the little fashionistas. With the focus on strong silhouettes and opulent details, each piece is made in traditional tailoring in Germany.
Creative Director Marketa Schroll was born near Prague, Czech Republic and grew up in Munich, Germany. She developed a deep sense for an aesthetic that combines the spirit of the time with the poetic codes of different cultures. The designs of MAÉST are deeply rooted in her second home and are reminiscent of Czech fairy tales and folklore. Voluminous shapes in historical costumes, colors of flowers and art from the Art Nouveau era are considered as her essential inspiration.
Marketa Schroll’s individual signature, her passion for details, bold colors and prints are recognizable in every MAÉST design. The collections are a selection of garments that combine art and fashion. In our communicative age, MAÉST designs stand for a visual expression of personality. As a Munich based fashion label, Marketa Schroll also produces hand-embroidered unique “Dirndl” on request. Her fashion is intended to make women feel strong, spirited and individual. It is for women who play with femininity and sophistication and enjoy life in every way.
Following this philosophy, every piece is manufactured in Germany in the highest quality and with social sustainability. Materials such as silk, jacquard or cotton are sourced from Italy and provided with specially drawn prints or hand embroidery. Each collection is exclusive and limited. The idea is to create unique fashion that can be passed on to the next generation as vintage pieces.
Two sisters and one vision: Prior to combining their creative and interdisciplinary visions for MAÉST, Marketa Schroll studied Fashion Design at the AMD Fashion & Design Academy and worked in design for Anuschka Hoevener and Escada. Stefanie Schroll, who holds a bachelor’s degree in Fashion & Design Management, gained experience with Estée Lauder Companies and the public relations agency Loews. A unique combination of creativity, business know-how and a passion for fashion perfectly combined.
Self-confidence. Individuality. Femininity.
MAÉST celebrates the maximum expression of fashion and its power behind it.
