Who Am I?
My name is Moran Cohen Tedeschi, I am a fashion designer and the founder of Mari & Leoni.
Many people ask me about the origin of my brand name and whether "we are partners?", well, the truth is that it's only me. The brand's name is a combination of the origin names of my beloved grandmothers, Mari and Leoni. Both were a true fashion lovers, each in her own way, and are still best source of inspiration for me.
My first sewing machine was a present from my parents for my 15th birthday. I started sewing clothes for dolls, pillows and coin purses. At the time I did not think of it as a profession. I graduated with first degree in business management degree and even studied computer science. I worked as a project and digital manager for nearly a decade, but I always knew that was not my destiny.
While working during the days, I began to study fashion design at Graidy Studio in the evenings, and it was a dream that came true. In 2017, I decided to leave my day job and started a business of my own. I chose to create a brand that caries the names of both of my grandmothers' and in their memory, as I wanted to continue their legacy of strong women who believe in themselves and in the power of a family, women who lived and breathed fashion.
The clothes I design are feminine and confident, just like my inspiring grandmothers. I am also inspired by my costumers and always do my best to keep in close contact, to get to know them and get a feedback. I want you to know that I design for you, and making you happy is my dream come true.
Happy Costumers Make Me Happy
