Mary is a salt of the earth, third generation seamstress who cut her teeth designing accessories for larger fashion manufacturers. While grateful for the opportunities presented to her, she could not ignore the nagging desire to take charge of her own destiny. She decided to couple her “reduce, re-use, recycle” design philosophy with her fate and took the plunge, jumping headlong into the creation of her own brand which she named after her young daughter, Novella Royale.
4 years later, Mary is at the helm of an emerging brand with a positive trajectory. The daily trials and tribulations of running her own business are shared with the absolute exhilaration of it, knowing that life is more about the journey than the destination.
