Zara-Mia has a distinctive approach to fashion this is shown throughout her Collections. Functional and versatile fundamentals are imbedded in the design. A key element is that the majority of the garments are multipurpose; one garment can be worn in various ways giving options to the wearer. The garments also have practical aspects using enhanced fabrics.
The intricate pattern cutting is a key feature in Zara-Mia's designs. The attention to detail is shown by the use of traditional tailoring techniques, which brings back the value of hand-sewn aspects.
Zara-Mia focuses on the silhouette of the body accentuating the women's curvaceous figure, showing optical illusions in the garments so that the body appears in a different way. The menswear is made to emphasize strength and power in men.
From initial idea to design then garment. Not only made in England, but handmade in Leeds.
Zara-Mia produces exclusive garments in short runs of fabric, in a variety of styles.
